Are you Eligible to Retake the Exam?

If you previously did not reach a passing mark on an exam, you may retake the exam after 30 days has passed.  The LMS will force this 30-day period and not allow you to retake the exam until the time has passed. 
  1. At any given time, you can click on the exam link in the module to see if you are eligible to retake it. 
  1. If you are NOT eligible to retake the exam, the system will display a message indicating when the exam will become available for retake.

  1. If you ARE eligible to retake the exam, a blue Re-attempt exam button will display.
  1. Once the LMS indicates that your re-take is possible, you will need to schedule the exam re-take with your invigilator.

Retaking the Exam

  1. Make sure you re-read the Exam Rules document and all exam tips in this Knowledge Base.
  2. With your Invigilator and you present, start the exam following the instructions noted here.
  3. The system will automatically enforce whether you are allowed to retake the exam (see above). When the exam is available for retake, click the Re-attempt exam button. Your Invigilator will be prompted to enter the confidential PIN. You will then be able to start the exam. 
  4. Once you have submitted the exam, the Summary of your previous attempts will be updated to show your new and previous attempts.
