comment Is it possible to fail Extended tests in Shadowrun?
To @Runeslinger's point, the way I think of it is that in game play the real issue is almost always time. Does the character have enough time to complete the Extended Test? That's where you can maximize the drama of it. In essence a short task either succeeds or doesn't, a longer series of tasks either succeeds in time or it doesn't. Not succeeding before the Troll merc squad arrives, for example, means that for all intents and purposes it doesn't matter that you could have succeeded given enough time. You failed to do it fast enough.

I think that would be a perversion of the test. Ultimately the test is your own, and can't be passed on to someone else halfway through.

comment How to help players settle down and focus?
I like that you added the "Let's not play tonight but have a social instead" bit, because it illuminates the point that everyone wanting to hang out and socialize isn't necessarily a bad thing.
