Concerned about time between exams

Hello, I am trying to get my MCSA at present (exam 70-290 next week). Previously I took and passed the 70-270 XP exam about 2 years ago and am concerned that it has since become invalid. Can anyone else confirm this? Also, as I lost my original MCP ID years ago it is not officially recorded anymore...all I have to prove I passed it is the printout from the passing centre. Help! icon_rolleyes.gif

    You can contact MS Learning to get your ID. The exams do not expire, but they will eventually become retired. This has not happened for the XP/2003 track yet, and it probably won't for at least 2-3 years.

    Thanks, what do they require from the printout to issue a new ID?

    You won't get a new one; they'll look up the one you already have after getting a little personal information from you.

    Send a quick mail to [email protected].

    Give them as much info as possible.

    e.g Name, e mail, contact tel number, test centre where you took exams, exam codes you believe to be on your transcript.

    Don't expect a swift reply though, normally automated response within 24 hours, something a bit more substantial a week or 2 later. Best to give them a quick call.
