  • According to Prometric the exam goes for 3hrs.  The passing score is 700/1000 and Microsoft does not release details of the number of questions in any of their exams.

  • Thanks for your reply.

    I just checked Prometric, it is indeed 3 hrs.

    Another thing with Prometric, candidate has to pay a fee to reschedule 15 days before the exam.

    I remember Prometric used to allow rescheduling within 24 hours without charging a fee.

  • That's correct.  The policy was changed some time ago to ensure that seats weren't left vacant due to people constantly rescheduling on the day before the exam.
