Can I retake a terminated exam?
In the event of a termination you may have the option to retake an objective or DM exam one more time. The opportunity will exist only if the computed score of the terminated exam is less than 2%.
Exam must be reattempted within 5 minutes of the termination and within the exam window, otherwise you are subject to the score received from the previous terminated exam.
To retake the exam, return to your dashboard, and click on the Retake button. If the Retake button is not visible you have scored more than 2% or you have already used up your retake allotment.
If the Retake was successful the new score will be recorded.
Since the questions are from a randomized data bank the new exam will not be identical to the terminated exam.
