Expired Exams? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm looking to sit my final exam for MCSA Windows Server 2012 R2.  I completed the first exam in April last year.  When I logged into prometric this morning I had a look at my history and there's a column 'Status Expiration' which seems to show that the first exam I did has expired (over 1 year).

    To get my MCSA qualification do I need to go and resit that exam?

  • Hi, timestream.

    No - the MCSA exams do not expire. Once you passed it, you are done with that exam. The MCSE exams will require recertification, if you earn an MCSE.

    If I were you, I would be more interested in seeing the passed exam on my Microsoft certification transcript. That is where it is counts. Log into the MCP site and check your transcript, here:

    If you are still unsure, you can contact Microsoft by sending an email to

    Alternately, you can contact you local Microsoft regional service center. Find the closest one on the following web page. You will need to click the plus (+) signs to expand them:

    Good luck!

    Best wishes, Davin Mickelson
