FAQ - Retaking Examinations: I am on a current examination list and I see a new examination announced. I am still interested in a job in this job title, should I apply for this new examination?
If you are on a current list for an examination, you should apply to retake the examination if the list you are on is going to expire within one year after the closing date for applications for the exam you see posted. (For example, if the closing date for the exam you see posted is June 20, 2012 and the list you are on is going to expire on June 19, 2013 or sooner, you should apply for and retake the exam in order to ensure your eligibility does not lapse. If, on the other hand, the list you are on is going to expire after June 19, 2013, you must wait and apply for the next administration when it is announced.) If there is an exception to this requirement, it will be stated on the examination announcement.
A new feature will be added to the DAS website shortly that will allow you to check to see what exam lists you are currently on and when they will expire.
