Yes. It's official. Microsoft has extended the free “second shot” through June 30. If you register for an exam using a second shot voucher, and you don’t pass the test, you can take it again for free.
Think of it as a free look at an exam. What I’ve found is many students are actually ready for an exam before they take it. Test anxiety slows a lot of people down, but with the free second shot, there’s no need to be anxious on the first take.
The key is you must register for the test using a second shot voucher. If you take a test without registering with a second shot voucher, you lose the benefit.
If you do register and fail the test, you can use the second shot voucher number to register for the same test for free. The only hitch is you have to wait at least one day after the failed exam.

Of course this works for any of the MCITP: Database Administration (70-431, 70-433, and 70-444) and MCITP: Database Developer (70-431, 70-441, 70-442) exams, but it can also work for most other Microsoft exams
