Please submit this before leaving the testing centre.

If your bad performance continues after you leave the testing facility, you can cancel your exam at home as well. There is, however, a time limit. You must submit your cancellation request to College Board as soon as possible because the deadline for receiving such requests is 11:59 PM (IST) on the Wednesday following the test date. You must fill out a ‘Request to Cancel Test Scores’ form online from the College Board website, sign it, and then fax it or speed-post/courier it overnight.
