Has anyone dealt with this? I’m having a nervous break down.

Couple hours after the exam or after the deadline? Why would you wait? As soon as I got back to my hotel I uploaded my exams. They give you a couple days so really no reason to be late unless you had technical difficulties.

You may want to contact your state's board. Pretty sure answers not uploaded on time are generally not counted. Make sure you have a damn good excuse.

That happened to a friend a few years back. They still ended up counting his exam but he also had issues with exam soft. You may want to call your state and explain what happened. Which state exam did you take? I just took Ohio's and If my memory serves me right, I recalled the director mentioning that they would accept late submissions due to the mishaps with examsoft.

IIRC, in California there is a point deduction for submissions after the deadline (I think like 10-15 points, on the scale with 1440 being passing).

If you are in CA, you have 2 weeks to submit essays before you get 0 credit. I think you had until thursday night to submit them before receiving any kind of point deduction.
