The Return of Second Shot in July 2015

Tisha Hardester

Second Shot is back! Are you thinking of starting on the road to MCP certification? Or interested in continuing or upgrading your certification path? Now is a great time to take your next step.

Second Shot provides you with a free retake on your exam should you need it – at no additional cost to you. To qualify as free, the retake must be the same exam as the one you didn't pass. Plus, either exam can be taken in a testing center or through Online Proctoring (OP), offering you greater exam taking flexibility. Find out if OP is available in your country.

To qualify for Second Shot,

  • Schedule and take an MCP exam between July 12, 2015, and January 12, 2016. Simply go to https://www.microsoft.com/learning, log in, and schedule your exam.

  • After your exam, log in to check your personal dashboard at https://www.microsoft.com/learning to verify testing results. Please allow up to 24 hours for results to show up on the dashboard.

  • Register for your retake within 30 days of the date from the failed exam date.

  • Review the Pearson VUE testing center availability for your specific exam and then schedule your retake.

  • For complete terms and conditions of this offer, visit the Second Shot page on our website.

Once you are certified, don't forget to add it to your CV or LinkedIn profile. And if you're on Xbox, put an MCP shirt on your avatar!

    @stuartdotnet - Yup, if you register and purchase between July 12, 2015, and January 12, 2016  for the exam again, you'll be eligible for a free Second Shot.

    @Roshan - The great thing about our Second Shot offer is it's free when you purchase and register for an exam. :)

    I purchased two on June 16 still havent taken them. I have rescheduled them a few times but they are  between the second shot time, does that make them valid for second shot?

    Hi @Dean - The promotion is for exams purchased after July 12, so unfortunately, your exams do not qualify.
