The Second Shot offer is a six-month promotional offer available for MCP exams that are scheduled, taken and failed between 12 July 2015 and 12 January 2016.
Beta exams can only be taken once, so they do not qualify for the Second Shot offer.
You must schedule your free retake exam within 30 days of failing your MCP exam, and availability is limited to capacity at Pearson VUE Testing Centres.
