  • The electives were originally announced back in 2014 according to this - https://borntolearn.mslearn.net/b/weblog/posts/electives-for-windows-server-2012-amp-sql-server-2012-mcsa-certifications-now-available - so it could be MS have removed the options by now.  I saw a few people posted comments to the blog last month asking if the elective options are still available.  You can check that and see if anyone posts back?

  • I'm curious a well.  I've already passed 410, currently studying to take 411 soon and hoping that 346 will still count as a test for the MCSA Windows 2012 R2.

  • Hi. It looks like you and Technsopyder are both covered, but yeah its odd MS don't mention it on the MCSA cert page - https://borntolearn.mslearn.net/b/weblog/posts/electives-for-windows-server-2012-amp-sql-server-2012-mcsa-certifications-now-available.

  • OK cool.  You could contact MS support and get clarification - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/help.aspx - and maybe post back here as I'm sure others are wondering the same thing.

  • I did that, although the guy said I could write Exam 346 instead 412, I was not fully convinced because he's actually looking at a screen with the same information that I get in my Certification Planner, so I would like to know why it has been retired from the new learning page https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/learning/mcsa-windows-server-certification.aspx

     This is slowly becoming a topic in many forums, I believe we deserve an explanation from Microsoft, don't we?

  • I agree Jesus and I find it very strange.  If it isn't on there I'm suspecting MS have removed the elective options (if they were even there in the first place?!).  Hopefully someone will see this post soon and can shed some light?
