Do the students’ names on their e-Profile have to exactly match their ID used for check-in?
While it is preferred that the names exactly match, NABP considers the PCOA a low-stakes exam without the same rules that govern name matching for the high-stakes exams like NAPLEX and MPJE. To ensure there is no added stress on testing day, it is highly recommended to have the e-Profile exactly match their ID used for check-in. Students who have had a name change between the time they created their NABP e-Profile and registration time should review the FAQ on name changes. If a student has a name change from the time of registration and the PCOA testing date, they should notify the school administrator so that there is no unnecessary issue on testing day.
