Re-take Exam Policy

hello guys,


Today was my first time took the FM 16 exam, and I failed.

It's difficult exam.

I'm planning to study harder and retake again.


According to the retake exam policy:

FileMaker has a 14-day re-testing policy. This means that if you take an exam, fail it, and need to retake the "same" exam again, you will be required to wait 14 days before taking the exam again. Why the policy?

Within the Certification industry, it is common for certification programs to impose a waiting period of up to one month, while FileMaker requires only 14 days. The wait period assists with test security: increased security means that the credential is even more valuable once earned. Requiring a wait period provides a consistent basis for measuring skills and abilities. It has been proven that people who retake exams earlier than two weeks acquire an unfair advantage based upon short-term memory. Waiting helps to protect the value of your credentials. We want customers to succeed, so the wait allows additional time for customers to study in order to pass the next time.


Can I take the exam on the 14th day (6/23/18) or have to wait after 6/23/18 ?

By the way, if anybody have exam coupon, please share.


Thanks in advance.
