MCP Decertifed

Discussion in 'Microsoft Certification' started by =?Utf-8?B?SWFpbg==?=, Jan 18, 2007.

  1. In October of last year, I passed my first MS exam (70-536).
    Upon passing I received an email giving me my MCPId and Access code to the
    MCP site. I was able to login without any troubles.

    Recently I tried to login and was prompted for my again access code.
    I contacted MCP help and they said I had been decertified with no reason
    given.

    I had not been contacted about this.

    I haven’t broken any NDA and certainly didn’t cheat (I worked for months
    studying), and have been working with .Net full time for years.

    I've also been able to book into my next exam (70-528) without any troubles.

    Has there been a change to weather exam 70-536 gives an MCP qualification?

    Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.

    Giving you this information breaks the NDA.

  6. I got into contact with MCP help.
    They alpologised for the missinformation, I havent been decertifed.
    (technically i never was certified).
    It was due to a change realted to 70-536, which doesnt give you an MCP by
    itself, just credit towards an MCTS (which i sit for today).

    See the first note here:

  7. I have also purchased the exam insurance, took and passed my test on 1/26/07.
    I have heard it takes 4-10 weeks before receiving the TechNet Plus Direct.
    I however have not heard anything about needing to be in the first 10,000.
    Is this true, if so, it must have been in REALLY fine print and seems a bit
    mis-leading. Is it true that you had to be in the first 10,000, if so, does
    anyone know where to find this information?
