OCMJEA Part 1 Reattempt clarification

I cleared Part1 with 60% over a year ago but didn't find time to go for the assignment. The score being low, I decided to retake the exam next week. Is it okay to reattempt, if you already cleared the examination?

I don't see why not. Having a higher score shouldn't matter but I think it would be ok to re-take. For yourself if nothing else.

I found something on Retake information at Oracle site

Retaking A Test

Candidates must wait at least 14 days before retaking any failed proctored exam.
There is no waiting period for failed online, non-proctored exams.
Passed exams may not be re-taken.Violations are subject to Oracle's Fraudulent Activity Policy.
Oracle encourages you to make use of the diagnostic feedback supplied with the score report to review the areas that require further preparation or study. Review the Exam Topics included on the Exam Description Page.
