DO I PAY RE-TEST FEES IF I CHOOSE TO TAKE BOTH SECTIONS AT THE SAME
HOW CAN I TAKE THE TEST AGAIN WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY ANY RE-TEST
are the answers to each of the scenarios:
you take both Math and English at the same time right now, the
$25 re-test fee will apply because your English scores are still
valid at the time of your re-test.
you re-test on separate dates, taking the Math section now, then
re-take the English section later when your scores expire, fees
will not apply for each test session because you would be re-testing
with expired scores for each section on separate dates.
you take both sections of the test after waiting for your English
test scores to expire, fees will not apply because you would be
re-testing after all test scores have expired.
