Is it that exam once given can't be retaken if you pass it?I mean if you pass it with low percentage then you can't retake it again?

why do you want to retake the exam...the percentage is not printed on the certificate, so you don't need to worry about that...

Yes, its the certification and more importantly, the knowledge, that is important to get into any good company.

You could retake the exam, but that means you'd have to pay for it again.

Your score is not printed on the certificate. What matters is that you passed the exam, the score is not so important.
