I got a job offer and I have to attend a psychological test tomorrow, 08:30 am. I can't attend at that time so I ask for a reschedule on next Monday. The HR person replied to my email with:

Well noted. We'll sumbit the information to our user.

I don't understand, is it a 'yes' or 'no'? Or is it meaning that the HR person will ask her boss (user) if he/she can or not?

    It means that your HR has acknowledged your request. It is another way of saying duly noted (correctly or appropriately recorded). If they have the power to accept themselves, it is most likely that they agreed, if they don't, it means they are submitting your request to someone who can accept it. – MorganFR Oct 19 '16 at 9:52

It is a "yes". It is both acknowledgement and assurance.

Someone might casually say, "Noted," but to say, "Well noted," or "Duly noted," is to emphasize that they have read your message, understood it fully, and will act according to your wishes.
