    Good pm. I am scheduled to sit the OET today but unfortunately wasn't able to take the exam. I signed a deferral request form 4 days ago but my card was declined so on that same day I tried another card to pay for the deferral. Until now I don't have any updates regarding my deferral. Hoping for your kind consideration on this matter since it's way too much for my exam to just go to waste. Thank you so much
