Yes, learners are welcome to take any DEDP course they wish to! If you have already completed and passed two elective courses, but wish to improve your scores, there are a few paths you may follow.
You may submit payment again for one of the elective courses you have already completed. This will grant you an additional attempt at that course’s Proctored Exam. You will be able to sit for the Proctored Exam in any future DEDP semester in which that course is offered—please note that not all DEDP courses are offered in every semester. For a schedule of DEDP course availability, please refer to this FAQ article and/or the DEDP MicroMasters Upcoming Dates page.
If you take a DEDP course’s Proctored Exam more than once and earn a higher score, your previous score will be replaced on your MicroMasters Portal Dashboard. If you do not earn a higher score, then your previous score will remain.
You may also choose to enroll in another of the DEDP program’s elective courses. However, please note that a maximum of one Introductory elective course may be counted towards your DEDP MicroMasters Program Credential. This means that if you have already completed one of the Introductory elective courses, 14.009x Good Economics for Hard Times or 14.73x Challenges of Global Poverty, while you are welcome to complete the other, both Introductory elective courses cannot be used to fulfill the elective course requirement for the DEDP Program Credential. Only one Introductory course will count.
For the purposes of calculating your DEDP MicroMasters Program Overall Grade, and for any application to the DEDP Master’s program, your highest scoring Advanced elective along with your next-highest scoring elective course (either Advanced or Introductory) will be used.
