That is the only correct answer. The BOR cannot retest. period.
The solution lies elsewhere: make certain (or at least as much as humanly
possible) that no one signs off a requirement that the Scout has not learned
to the letter of what is required. This is much harder to do, since so many
more people must be "educated" or trained, but it is the only correct
The BOR cannot fail a Scout for having, in their opinion, not successfully
mastered a specific skill.
