Upgrade from MCSA 7 to Win 10?

LenniusceLenniusce Member Posts: 114 ■■■■□□□□□□
In see an exam offered to upgrade my MCSA Win 7 to 8, but I would like to skip this and go straight to Windows 10 if given the opportunity. Any bridge exam for this?

    Exams for Windows 10 have not been announced yet but I believe there will be an upgrade path.

    Agree with what has been said. Given the popularity of Win 7 and the flop of Win 8 I am positive there will be a direct upgrade path.

    Keep an eye on https://borntolearn.mslearn.net as they are sometimes the first ones to discuss cert updates.

    Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.

    [h=3](from : https://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-gb/windows-upgrade-offer.aspx)

    Terms and conditions
    • The Step up offer is available to individuals who earn an MCSA: Windows 8 certification between 15 February 2015 and 31 May 2015.
    • The Step up offer consists of one free attempt at Windows 10 Exam 697 when it becomes available.
    • To redeem the free Windows 10 exam, you must sign in to the Microsoft site prior to scheduling your exam.
    • You must take Exam 697 no later than 31 May 2016.

    So you must be certified MCSA: Win8 between Feb 15, 2015 and May 31, 2015 in order to qualify for the "step up" offer.
    That seems rather stringent.

    Does anyone have any new insights on a direct upgrade path from Windows 7 MCSA to a Windows 10 MCSA?

    I find it ridiculous that a path may not exist. there are many more Win7 MCSAs and skipping a Windows 8 MCSA would save time and money. Windows 8 is pointless and it doesn't have wide adoption and companies have waited for Windows 10. The entire DoD will migrate to Windows 10 come Jan 2017, so I want to get the certification on my radar as soon as I can.

    I think you can just take the 70-697 exam to be certified as a MCSA in Windows 10 if I am not mistaken. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/mcsa-windows-10-certifications.aspx If you earned your MCSA in Windows 8 between February 15, 2015 and May 31, 2015 you can take the exam for free. It seems rather odd that they have just 1 exam to become MCSA in Windows 10, not sure if this will change down the line.

    Hi All,
    Just bumping this thread.
    Does anyone know if its possible to upgrade from Windows 7 exams to Windows 10 exams still?

    Because the Win 8 exam have been retired. Looks like you need to take both Win 10 exams to be certified.
