This is one of those situations I laugh at… because even great organizations like Microsoft Learning Experience is going to make the occasional mistake.. especially when it’s systems are all automated and unmonitored.
I received the following e-mail today congratulating me on passing my exam yesterday:
I was reasonably sure that I already had that certification, but just in case I logged onto the MCP Portal to check my transcript. Sure enough…
Now here’s the thing… the e-mail is right, I never passed 70-247… but I didn’t have to. If you passed 70-659 before a certain date then it replaced the requirement for the 70-247 exam… but if the automated system checks people who have passed the requisite exams as of today (and not as of June, 2012) then it is right… I shouldn’t have the cert.
I’ll chalk this one up to a funny system glitch… no action required
