New year gift from Microsoft Learning – Second shot free is back

Microsoft recently announced that Microsoft Learning brought back its most popular Second Shot Offer for MCP exams.

The Second Shot offer will help you retake an exam in case you failed it the first time between January 5th 2015 and May 31st 2015
Again as mentioned in my previous posts that all exams are now taken at Pearson Vue testing centers and scheduled directly from your MCP portal and there is no coded needed. Prometric is now not an option for MCP examination.

 

Once you register for an MCP exam between January 5, 2015, and May 31, 2015, you will be eligible for a free retake if you don’t pass it. You have 30 days from the date you took the initial exam to schedule a retake. To schedule your retake, sign in, select your exam from the exam list, and click Schedule now for free.

Best Of Luck for the examination 🙂

Microsoft announcing a new “Online Proctored” offering for some certification exams. So Microsoft EXAM from Home\Office is possible

I recent got to know that Microsoft announcing a new “Online Proctored” offering for some certification exams, yes it means that now you can give your your Microsoft EXAM from Home\Office, etc. Now that makes your life more easy and a Big thanks to Microsoft for same. “Online Proctored” is not yet announced for India but as it is in Beta phase we expect India to be part of same in next Phase. Below are the Countries eligible for same:
Australia
Brazil
Chile
Colombia
Egypt
Finland
Ireland
Kenya
Malaysia
Mexico
Norway
Peru
Philippines
Russia
Singapore
South Africa
Sweden
Switzerland

United States
Uruguay
In past I know the amount of time I use to spend checking the room somewhat between the exams I took. Once I was asked empty my pockets(mobile phone, wallet, bluetooth, etc), show your arms, etc. Basically We were surrounded by white walls and glasses with no one sitting near to us as if it is a police interrogation. During this “Online Proctored” exam you will be asked if your pockets are empty but no one actually checks 😉

Do read the rules and regulations properly before you attend “Online Proctored” exam.

In “Online Proctored” the test is very much similar to the normal testing experience except a window on top of the screen which will show you what proctor was seeing.

If the proctor observe anything strange, you will get a little popup from proctor saying “reading some of the questions aloud which is not permitted”, “please do not do it again or we will end the exam” warning. Or if you move away from camera, you will be notified and you will get a similar message.

It’s encouraging to see Microsoft applying new testing methods to the certification process and I look forward to seeing how certification exams evolve in the future.
