Not everyone succeeds on the first try. Following the first exam, users receive a list of the questions answered incorrectly, making it easier to study for the re-test. This option provides access to the exam so a user can try again.

Note that the test questions are randomized each time someone takes the test, so the questions will appear in a different order each time it is taken.
