Do Microsoft have other test providers than Pearson ?

    Question


  • I took a test om Microsoft exam 70-461 in May this year.
    But test was terminated due to a 5 minute Timeout on the introduction .
    First the instructor logged me in.
    And I was adjusting the chair and the screen ++ and started to read the acceptance document.

    But before I reached to press 'Yes' (and of course another 'Next' button) then the test was ended with 0 points.
    The persons who administrated the test area wrote an Incident about it.

    I called Pearson about a status. And they would not give me a free new test.
    I would expect a bit more service when I spend so much time and money to take this test.

  • Hi,

    There are two ways to register for an exam:

    • For Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) exams and Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) exams delivered through academic outlets, register at Certiport.
    • For all other Microsoft Certification paths and MTA exams delivered through commercial outlets, sign in and select your exam to schedule with Pearson VUE.
