Retake? How many days to wait?

I wanted to see if anyone can clarify the retake policy? I have read you have to wait 5 calendar days before you can retake an exam.

So my question is, what is 5 calendar days?? I have checked the cisco site and google looking for an answer. Some people say 5 days (counting Monday-Sunday), some say 5 business days (only counting Monday-Friday). So does anyone know the answer? As an example (since this happened to me) If you fail on a Thursday, counting 5 "normal" days you can retake it on the following Tuesday, but 5 business days is the following Friday.

If anyone knows the correct answer I would appreciate  it.

Retake? How many days to wait?

Hi Mark,

In your case you could retake on the following Wednesday

Retaking Exams

The policies for retaking exams are as follows:

  • Candidates may only take a beta exam once.
  • Candidates who fail an exam must wait a period of five (5) calendar days, beginning the day after the failed attempt, before they may retest for the same exam.
  • Once passed, a candidate must wait a minimum of 180 days before taking the same exam with an identical exam number.
  • Candidates who violate these policies are in  violation of the agreement. Such conduct is strictly prohibited as  described in the Cisco Certification and Confidentiality Agreement.

Thanks for the reply. What confused me was the term "calander days" (cause every day is a calander day ). But I guess it would have said business days if that were the case.

Thanks again Dylan.
