Second Shot: Here's the Simple Version

For a limited time, take any Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) exam, and get a free retake if you don’t pass!

The Second Shot requires you to have scheduled an exam to take between between July 12, 2015, and January 12, 2016. If you don't pass then you need to schedule an appointment for your free retake within the next 30 calendar days of the initial appointment.

Disclaimer - we're providing this information purely to illustrate the main rules and can take no responsibility for your exam bookings made directly via Pearson / Microsoft.

Here's an example:

  1. Joe sits his exam on 4th December 2015 and unfortunately fails
  2. As his original exam included a Second Shot, he must schedule his free retake (via the Microsoft webpage) by the end of 2nd January 2016
  3. There must be a slot available at a Pearson VUE centre - Microsoft will have this exact information on their site at the time of scheduling
  4. The actual appointment of the retake can be after the 30 days - Joe could sit his retake in March 2016
