  • Yes its possible, but its also possible that its a scam trying to entice you to provide information that could be used for identity theft.  I would wait a couple weeks and then check your transcript on the MCP site.  If the exam shows then it was for real.  If it doesn't then it was probably a fake message.

    The reason it might be for real could be that someone challenged the clarity of one of the questions in their comments and Microsoft decided after looking into it that some question was misleading.  This might have lead them to accept more than one answer or to throw the question out.  That could have modified your score in some way and promoted you above the Pass line.  It is possible, but not likely.

  • This seems to be a legit email. I checked my transcript after recieving the email. I totally passed. It was wicked.

    Good for you too :)

    Microsoft put all the email addresses in the To: box though, so I scrolled through a thousand names on my iphone before I saw the news

  • What happens if you don't receive any mail, but on your scoring report it shows pass. But on your dashboard status, it shows fail. What should you do?
