How long until cleared to take exam?

I applied to take the exam on April 1st; how long does it take to process the application?  Once your name is posted in the OG can you go ahead and register at Prometric?

That seems like a long time. I applied catagory B, where they had to analyze not only my transcripts but the course descriptions, and i don't think it took that long.  
 
You're going to need an ID # from your acceptance letter to register with Prometric. My suggestion is that you give the OED a call and ask them about the status of your app.

OED quotes 5 weeks, but usually takes less time.  Got my response back within two weeks. My record was straightforward Cat A.   Don't know what you mean by posted in the GO.  You need to wait for an official letter from OED.  It has your ID number which you need for registration.  The letter also states the valid dates in which you can take the exam.

Also, did you include a reply card to verify that they got your application?  Definitely call.
