Cisco CCIE and CCDE Exam Policy Changes
Have you heard that Cisco changes its CCIE and CCDE exam policy? If you are planning to take or re-take CCIE or CCDE exams – written or lab- any time soon, be sure to keep the changes in mind. This especially concerns the cases of retakes (when you initially fail your exam). While we all hope to pass from the first try, the following information is definitely worth keeping in the back of your head.
Written Exam: Retakes
There is no limit to the number of attempts that can be made on the written exam, but it is compulsory to wait at least 5 days between exam attempts. Once you pass a particular written exam, you cannot retake it for 180 days (not that many candidates would choose to do it anyways, but sometimes, in light of recertification or the need to improve the score, some people do that).
Starting August 2, 2014, the following Cisco policy changes come into effect:
All candidates must wait 30 days between CCIE lab attempts. Please note that the 30-day period starts from the day after a failed lab exam.
Candidates who do not pass the CCDE practical exam can retake it during the next scheduled exam administration.
Effective August 2, 2014, the following policy changes will be enforced:
