I find the free retake policy a bit sad. Maybe it's just me.

I sounds like "I'll try it once for fun. I don't bother if I fail, I'll get another try for free". I find it amazing to offer free retakes for exams, any kind of exams. I think that exams should not be taken lightly or it will diminish their credibility.

Krishna, It's true that Offer is not There in India.

I contacted the SUN Learning Center that you mentioned in your post earlier itself and got that confirmation.

Instead they are saying that they have another offer of 40% discount on all certifications in India.

I feel that this is better offer than the one which is free second take coz we don't take the test lightly and also it is coming at discounted price.

Satou,

I agree with what you say. Exams should be taken seriously.

The idea of taking such an offer chills my spine down! Can't imagine flunking here.

Hey tell me something...is the free retake policy valid for ones who absolutely DONT CLEAR the exam...or its valid for someone who got "just pass" score and wants to improve upon with a second attempt ?

If the later case is true...then the free retake policy cud be a boon...I wud like it to be true...

About the exam retake... i was wondering can you take
the exam anytime after the 23rd June?

I mean if I should purchase the voucher now, would I be
required to take the exam within a particular time or
I could take the exam anytime I want(so long as the voucher does not expire).

Thank you.

Sen Aff.
