Schedule PMP Exam

Finally, I can schedule my PMP exam upon passing the PMI PMP audit!

After obtaining the PMI Eligibility ID from the PMI email or on the PMI website, one need to go to to schedule the PMP exam (I was surprised that this URL is not shown in the email nor the PMI website but is buried in a PDF file (Exam Scheduling Instructions). The PMP examination is administered solely by Prometric and there is only one valid Prometric center in Hong Kong that can hold computer based PMP examination:


To my surprise, the latest date that I could book the examination was the following day and PMP examinations are normally scheduled on every Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. (with some exceptions that begins at 12:00noon). It seems that there are not many PMP candidates in Hong Kong. Though I was well prepared for the PMP examination, I would like to take an extra week to do more practice examinations (especially the free 1-week exam simulator that comes with the book ‘The PMP Exam – How to pass on your first try (5th edition)”.

A confirmation email detailing the time and location of the examination was received after I have finished the process. It also contains instructions on identity proof and reschedule policy.

Preparation for the PMP Exam Day

  1. 2 forms of identity proofs: HKID card and Credit Card
  2. Arrive 30 minutes (recommended, or at least 10 minutes) before the scheduled appointment to allow time for check-in procedures (arriving late will not be allowed to test and will incur a penalty fee)
  3. A print-out of the confirmation email (not required, just in case)
  4. Revise my notes on PMBOK® Guide
  5. Practice a lot of sample examination questions
  6. Have a rest before the DAY
