Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

Is the LFS201 a free retake examination? How can one confirmed?

I purchased the course directly with Linux foundation during a discount. I want to know if there is a free retake.


Following the https://training.linuxfoundation.org/certification/certification-information-and-faq/certification-exam-retake-policy

For Linux Foundation Certification Exams purchased directly from The Linux Foundation and not marked as SINGLE-ATTEMPT, one (1) free retake per Exam purchase will be granted in the event that a passing score is not achieved and Candidate has not otherwise been deemed ineligible for Certification or retake. The free retake must be taken within 12 months of the date of the original Exam purchase. 

For exam purchases made through an Authorized Training Partner, contact the specific Partner to check eligibility for a free retake.

For exam purchases marked as SINGLE-ATTEMPT, only a single attempt will be granted.


Where can I see the single attempt mark?
