In an effort to ensure valid certifications, AWS will allow candidates whose results are indeterminate the option of retaking the exam at no cost. Scores classified as indeterminate will not be considered valid and will not be eligible for certification. If it is determined that a breach of the Candidate Conduct Policy has contributed to the classification of indeterminate, AWS will also take additional action as laid out in the Candidate Agreement. AWS reserves the right to ask you to re-test if there is any suspicion of fraudulent or aberrant test scores. Retesting will take place at a facility of our choosing at a mutually agreeable time.
