    Very much doubt it, Microsoft already gave us 1 year's notice that the exam was going to be retired. Then extended the exam deadline from April to June. You could e-mail the MCP helpdesk and see what they say.

    Absolutely no way mate. Getting hold of anyone in MS is a nightmare.
    Even if you could, the exams are run by Prometric which further complicates matters.

    Bad luck, that really sucks.

    Have you tried re-scheduling it with Prometric? I know there is an expiry date in this case, but they may still let you re-book it for say in a weeks time?

    Yeah, well it's got to be more than 24hrs before the exam in order to rebook. Good that you are feeling better tho, I'm sure you'll be fine and GL!

    Depending on how ill you are, you may as well have a crack anyway. Even if you find you can't sit through it and have to leave half way at least you can say to yourself you had a go.

    Don't want to be thinking tomorrow night "prob could have done it actually, damn..."

    Phone the prometric Customer services line and explain. They would have a policy on sickness and as you booked it before..

    Well done once again! Something about those MCDST tests. I was deathly ill for one of them as well and I barely scraped through with a pass myself. Congrats!
