Hi Saurabh,

Sadly, there is no discount for the exam to re-certifiy :( All costs carry across no matter how many times they are taken.

What Do They Cost?

Computer-based certification exam prices range from $80 to $325 US dollars or equivalent worldwide. The ICND1 and ICND2 exams are $125 USD, the CCNA exam is $250 USD and the professional level CCNP and CCDP Composite exam is $300.00 USD, and CCIE written exams are $350 USD. Payment is made directly to the authorized test delivery partner Pearson Vue.

CCIE lab exams are $1,400 USD. Payment is made online via credit card or wire transfer

Refund policies vary by testing delivery partner.

Hope this helps! Sorry man,
