Exam Retake Policy
General Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) exam retake policy
1. If a candidate does not achieve a passing score on an exam the first time, the candidate must wait at least 24 hours before retaking the exam.
2. If a candidate does not achieve a passing score the second time, the candidate must wait at least 14 days before retaking the exam a third time.
3. A 14-day waiting period is also imposed for the fourth and fifth subsequent exam retakes. A candidate may not take a given exam any more than five times per year (12 months). This 12-month period starts the day of the fifth unsuccessful exam retake. The candidate is then eligible to retake the exam 12 months from that date. To take a given exam more than five times per year, a candidate must submit a request and obtain prior permission from Microsoft.
4. If a candidate achieves a passing score on an exam, the candidate cannot take the exam again. In most cases, exams can NOT be retaken; however, candidates may retake exams that are based on rapidly changing technologies annually. For a complete list of exams that can be retaken annually
