It’s October 19th… where are the results?

Update (Oct. 22nd) : Spoke to Prometric Netherlands this morning. They told me we should not expect the results anywhere near the first half of November. When I asked how they came up with that information, they told me the beta exam ran until September 24/25. The results will be available 6-8 weeks after that date. I will contact MS Learning as soon as they are online and available. I spoke to my MS Learning contact later in the evening and she told me (that the results should be updated in the upcoming night).

Update (Oct. 23nd) : This morning I checked the Prometric website and the results were there. For what I hear that’s not the case for everybody, so please leave a comment if you don’s see the entire results yet (some see one or more exam still saying Tested).

On August 20th I blogged about the date that we should expect the results of the 70-413, 70-414, 70-415 and 70-416 (Windows Server 2012) exams. October 16th was the date the exams went ‘Live’, but sadly enough (not for the first time) the beta results are not available again on this date. That’s why I had contact with one of my contacts at MS Learning several times, during the last few days.

What I didn’t really understand that, in the past we always received the results of the beta exams before the exam went ‘Live’. For what I understand is that something Microsoft Learning is discussing internally, let’s hope when the next series of beta exams arrive the issues are solved and the beta results are available way before the exams go ‘Live’.

I also contacted Prometric via Twitter several times. On October 12th they  told me to expect the results somewhere mid-this week.


Because it’s already October 19th in the entire world (in just two more hours the 19th is almost over everywhere except for the United States). They assured that the results would still become available on October 19th. Since their headquarter is located on the American East Coast, we can expect the results somewhere between now and October 20th 6:00 GMT…


I agreed with my contact at MS Learning to let her know if the results were not available by Monday morning (October 22nd), so she can contact Prometric HQ and to make sure the results will be available ehh…FAST.

Please let me know if you received the results (or if it’s still saying ‘Tested’), so I know what to tell MS Learning on Monday morning.
