[QUOTE=Mullet Farm;142376]Received one letter (hard copy) as well as voice mail stating “You are approved pending testing.” Sat for exam, passed, submitted results, then received letter (hard copy) as well as voice mail stating “We made a mistake, you don’t qualify for the upgrade according to my supervisor. Sorry.”
Has anyone else been put in this situation? Is it worth pursuing as an appeal?
Traveling to exam, test prep tuition, hotels, time of, etc. was a big expense.[/QUOTE]
Did they say why you didn’t qualify? I ran into a hiccup with my upgrade from 3a/e to 2a/e. The lady at the REC was adamant that I needed to test for the upgrade. After an hour or so of going round and round we finally determined that her copy of the notebook listing upgrade requirements was out of date… by about six years. It’s hard to say if it’s worth arguing without knowing what changed their mind regarding your status.
