Sun’s Certification Retake Rules:

* There is a 7-day minimum wait period before retaking a failed exam.
* You can retake the same exam a maximum of three (3) times in one calendar year.
* After the third failed attempt within one calendar year, you must obtain written permission from Sun prior to attempting a fourth time by sending an email request to
* An exam cannot be retaken once it has been passed.
