  • Jeff,

     

    Thank you so much for your answers.

     

    finally 2 questions, i will very appreciate if you could answer these questions as well?

    1.  If i am a MCTS (70-432) certified professional then also i have to write 2 papers for getting MCITP (70-450)? (Once again is it required to write 70-432 certification for 2nd time with mcitp?)

    2.  Is there any negative marking? if there then how much?

  • Hi,

    1) No.  You will only need to complete the 70-450 exam to get your MCITP.

    2) How marks are calculated is not disclosed.  Furthermore, you only receive a mark out of 1000 and you're not told which questions you got right or wrong.

  • Jeff,

     

    I heard 70-432 certified professionals have to write 70-432 exam once again for MCITP certification? can you please confirm this once again?

    sorry to ask you once again please don't mind. :)

  • Where did you hear that?

    If you have already passed an exam, you can't take it again.  The only way you can take it again is if you fauled it.
