Hi Guys,

Do you know if the Second Shot program will be made available again?

Couldn't find anything on Microsoft's website about this.

Thank you,

    I'm sure it will be around again. I'm guessing towards the end of the year which is when I normally see it.

    I'm getting MS exams done since 2007 (damn, almost 10 years) and so far it has always been around. Usually a couple of months a year it's there, back and forth. Since the previous period ended just recently I don't expect it to be resumed anytime soon, but summer 2016 or autumn 2016 are totally possible. Search online, someone may have collected all of this information and compiled a infographic or something showing when it was happening before so you can make educated guesses on when it's going to happen in the future.

    It seems to be around twice a year. I would expect to it come back around July.

    Ya I need this to come back. I've taken about 1 month off since my last fail try. I was very PISSED and UPSET that I said screw this. But I'm going to try again and see how that goes. I already failed 4 times so you know this is not my first ride , and I did use the 2nd shot the last time.

    Well hopefully it will come back soon.
