On April 27, 2004 VUE released a promotion that allows
candidates who fail specific exams with a one time
opportunity to re-take the exam for free.
Eligible Exams: 70-270, 70-290, 70-291, 70-292, 70-293,
70-294, 70-296, 70-297, 70-298
Eligibility period: Customers must take and fail an
eligible exam between April 1 and June 30
Redemption period: Customers may get one free retake by
Redemption instructions: Customers must call Pearson VUE
central registration at 1-800-TEST-REG (837-8734) to
schedule their free retake. The call center
representative will validate eligibility. The customer
should identify they are taking part in the "Second Shot"
Offer good in US only. (All eligible and redeemed exams
must be taken within the US.)
Customers are entitled to retake any ONE exam that they
failed during the eligibility period. They may receive
only one free retake, regardless of how many attempts or
different exams they attempt. The free retake cannot be
applied to an exam the customer did not take (and fail)
during the eligibility period.
Free retake cannot be applied to prior purchases (i.e.,
customers cannot get a refund if they've already paid for
a retake and have taken it already). If they failed that
paid retake, they may be still entitled to a free retake.
All retake time frames are subject to compliance with
Program Retake rules
sp), which state:
If you do not pass an exam the first time, you may retake
it at any time. If you do not achieve a passing score a
second time, you must wait at least 14 days to retake the
exam a third time. A 14-day waiting period will be
imposed for all subsequent exam retakes. If you have
passed an exam, you cannot take it again. Beta exams may
be taken only once.
This offer is available only at Pearson VUE testing
sites. Customers must take and fail an exam at a Pearson
VUE site during the eligibility period. They may then
retake that same exam at no additional cost during the
redemption period at a Pearson VUE testing site (either
the same testing site, or any other Pearson VUE testing
site within the US).
