I recently took VCAP5-DCA on SEP 9, 2013 but failed and since then I have been trying to schedule that exam but no luck. I no longer see that exam under pre-approved exam on Pearson account however when I try to request authorization from my Vmware account I get a message saying "You already have an existing authorization, please go to the Getting Started section to view it.".... I have already contacted Pearson and they says that they don't have authorization on file and the authorization earlier given was only for one attempt. I also contacted vmware education support and they says that their ops team is looking into this and I have not received any update after that yet. Has anyone come across this situation? Any suggestions?
Wait for VMware Education Ops to get back to you.
All attempts at the exam cost exactly the same as the first time unless you booked the first one with a free second attempt voucher (no I dont have any and as far as I know there is only one that is limited to a certain geography)
