    Can anyone tell me why Pearson Vue charge £130 for an exam and Prometric charge £111? I thought the exam fees were standard! Just asking cos I've had my Prometric one cancelled so I looked on the Pearson Vue site to see if they had a site near me on the same day. I need to do the test on the day I had planned as that's the only date I can fit in till Christmas.

    Not that I'm too bothered about the price cos I can claim it back through a work education programme. Just would like to know what difference, if any, there is.

    According to Microsoft's website:

    However I read somewhere that the price difference is caused by the exchange rate and UK tax. I'm not sure there is such a big price difference though, maybe where the company is based affects the price?
