    Hi All

    First post as i have been looking all over the net to see if anybody has had the same problem as myself and stumbled upon your site.
    Anyway i have been taking microsoft exams for years and have my XP and Vista qualifications so thought i would have a go at the server exams. I booked 83-640 a month ago and have been revising hard at the weekends and after school using some books from work and one i brought off amazon. I took the test last tuesday and thought i had done crap but passed with a 725! I picked my print out up from the centre and went home quite chuffed with myself. I know it wasn't a great pass but a pass is a pass! Anyway i looked today on prometric and it says failed, I phoned them up and they said that i have failed on there system! I explained that the screen displayed pass and i have the exam print out with the exam centre stamp on it saying that i passed with 725. After about 10 minutes waiting they asked me to scan it in and email it to them. I have done this and i am just waiting now. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and did they sort it? I really don't want to do it again as i have better things to do on a night/weekend like looking after a two year old and doing a house up!!

    Any info would be great from peeps on here!!

    Thanks

    Matt

    School and been sitting MS exams for years? That doesnt make sense to me.

    Anyway, you are doing the right thing, let us know what Prometric say.

    Hi Mate,

    I think it was because of this comment:

    Anyway, you did the right thing - that's why you have to keep your score sheet, just in case things like this happens.

    Sorry must be my age! Anyway I have spoken to them today and they have passed my case onto another department now. God knows what they will do now, they said somthing about uploading the test. Don't see how they can say anything if I have the hard copy of the score!

    Thanks

    Grats on the pass! But did it really take Microsoft almost 3 weeks to make a decision?
