Would it be possible to get student discount on the cert? :slight_smile:

Interesting idea. At the moment the system is not flexible enough for giving discounts, but well look into this in future.


I just did the test for the first time and it tells me to wait 7 days.
This differs from the explanation of the Email:

“You can try the test 5 times, and if you fail, no worry, you have the opportunity to take the exam once again in 7 days.”

I can also not find these information on the webpage.

The idea is that if you fail, you have to wait a bit before trying again.

The following is from the Warm-up portion of the Certification Exam. It indicates that there is a 30 day wait between attempts. Above, it was mentioned that there is a 7 day wait. Which is it? Thanks.

Q: What is the waiting period between exam attempts?

Make sure you have up to 79 minutes reserved for the exam. Ensure that you are in an interruption free environment, have a reliable network and have a fresh cup of coffee in front of you. You are free to browse the JavaDocs and Book of Vaadin during the exam. It is not counted as cheating.

An interrupted exam can be resumed later, continuing from the next question. A
failed exam can be retried after 30 days

Next you will be taken to the first real question. Good luck!

Originally it was 30 days. Many here is however talking about that 7 day period, so maybe it felt too long and it was cut down to a week.

Great! Thank you for the quick reply Jens.
