SQL Certs 70-461, 70-462 and 70-463 retirement dates RRS feed

  • Question

  • In March, I passed the 70-461 exam. I will be sitting the 70-462 exam on the 21st of October 2016. If and when I pass this exam, i will be looking to study for and sit the 70-463 exam.

    Can anyone clarify when Microsoft plans to retire these certifications?

  • Hi Andrew.

    Actually, there is no retirement plan for those exams, since they're not included in the list of retired exams published on the Microsoft Learning site.
    You could also try contacting the Microsoft Learning Support and ask for information.

  • Thanks for your response Luigi. I managed to Pass the 70-462 on the 22nd of October. In time, I will be looking to start my study in to the 70-463. The reason I was asking if the retirement date for this exam had been planned was that I wanted to determine how much time I had to study for the exam. I was hoping that the retirement date for this exam would be 2 + years away so I could take a short break before I started studying again.
