    Second Shot Availability End Date - May 31, 2013

    Does it mean that I can buy the second shot voucher when I'm actually ready for an exam in, let's say, several months?

    Q. How long is the Second Shot offer available?

    A. You will have to get a Second Shot voucher code, schedule an exam, pay for your exam, take the exam the first time, and take your retake exam before the voucher expiration date. Check your voucher for the expiration date.

    And regarding the timeframe to get/redeem the voucher:

    Passing the exams needed to demonstrate those skills can be tough, but for a limited time, you’ll get a free second chance to succeed.

    I was forced to buy a second shot voucher last week at Prometric for my 646. As usual I had been dilly dallying around with when to give my exam, was not confident on monday, had a meeting on tuesday etc etc so on Wednesday I walked in to prometric in the afternoon to give the exam. Prometric told me that they have exhausted across all centers the single shot vouchers and if I wanted to give the exam immediately I will need to buy a second shot voucher.
    First time I was not happy about clearing in one shot icon_twisted.gif

    This might give me the motivation to retake 70-647.
