What if I fail my Assessment?

Sometimes things don’t go as we expect them too, that’s why we’ve decided to offer every one of our students a free position on one of our courses if they fail their first attempt of their assessment.

Once you have completed a course with us you will be given a password by Scrum.org that will give you access to your assessment. If you attempt and fail this assessment within 14 days, Scrum.org will give you a second attempt at your assessment for free! The best part is you can sit your second attempt whenever you want.

We have decided to match this by offering previous students who feel they need extra tuition or coaching, a free position on the same course type they previously completed with us. This will help relieve some pressure if students have failed their first attempt and are struggling with the study aides and online resources.

To qualify for a free position on one of our courses you must:

  • Complete a course provided by AdaptDev Ltd
  • Fail your first attempt at your assessment
  • Qualify for a second attempt of the same assessment with Scrum.org


If you meet these criteria you are eligible for a free position on the same course type you previously sat with us. This could save you anywhere between £800 and £1600!

If you would like to know more about this offer feel free to chat with us in the bottom right of your screen, or email us at agile@adaptdev.co.uk.
