    I have had a little break from studies as it was doing my head in but am trying to get back into 70-291 at the moment and was wondering about the exam vouchers/second shot.

    I know the second shot thing ended this summer but they usually come back 6 months later don't they? Or did I read somewhere that they will no longer do those and will just do the rubbish 10% off type vouchers from now on?

    Any of you guru's out there help with this? I did a lil google but gave up after seeing all the voucher sites. I even tried a search for it on here but found stuff from 2007 :eek:

    I don't think MS would stop second shot as it acts as a good stimulus to get people to do exams and they possibly use it in quieter times to boost revenue. I would be surprised if we saw another this year to be honest.

    I think the recent second shot ran for some time so may be a while before it comes back (and it only recently finished).

    I think it ran until June as I'm sure they extended the time you had to take the resit.

    Rumblings are that it's dead and won't return. Not for a long while, anyway.

    Then again, I could be wrong.
