  • Hi Mahesh,

    When you schedule an exam after 5 januari 2015, you schedule for an exam including a second shot for that particular exam that you have scheduled, for example 70-347. The second shot will be applicable for only that exam.

    When you pass the exam the second shot will expire. Therefore it will not be availabe anymore.

    In the case of exam 70-341, when you fail the exam there should be a second shot available for that particular exam on your MCP account. If this is not the case you should contact your Regional Service Centre, they can help you solving this issue.

    See below link for explanation on how the second shot works, if you scroll to the bottom you will also find the Regional Service Centres, choose the one applicable for you country.

  • Hello Reshma

    It was technical issue with that Microsoft system I have case log for the same.

    because have schedule exam on 26 feb. 70-341 and second 70-342 on 3 march.

    but initial exam I am not able to clear. after 2 - 3 day I seen second shot free but after 3 day that option gone without scheduling exam.

    after case resolve I can see second shot free now.

    its problem with Microsoft education portal.
