CCSP exam retake

Do I have to pay for every attempt I make for CCSP exam or DO I get 3 attempts to pass in 1 year.

How does the retake policy work for CCSP?

Re: CCSP exam retake

@apdatla Every exam take is full price. Individuals may sit for the exam up to three time in a 12-month period. Please see the excerpt from the (ISC)² website below regarding the retake policy.

 

For the CCSP and HCISPP:

  • If you don’t pass the exam the first time, you can retest after 90 days.
  • If you don’t pass a second time, you can retest after an additional 90 days.
  • If you don’t pass a third time, you can retest after 180 days from your most recent exam attempt.

CCSP Retake

hi,

 

I took my CCSP in March 26, 2018 and was not able to clear. Am I eligible to retake the exam on June 23, 2018?

 

thanks

Hello @GJ

Please take a look at @amandavanceISC2's reply below for an answer. The date that you mentioned is not a full 90 days from when you first took the exam, so you will not be eligible for a retake at that date.

Re: CCSP Retake

Re: CCSP Retake

@cissp704 Yes, that is correct. For the CCSP, the retake is 90/90/180 and no more than 3 times in one calendar year.
