    Default MCSA 2012 to MCSE 2016 and Securing MCSA

    verytime I read certification changes, Microsoft is very unclear about expiration date, how to secure certification and path for different MCP certification.
    I took 3 exams two years ago and obtained MCSA 2012.
    Question 1
    As I read the changed certification paths, if I take one exam 70-413 or 70-414, I'll get MCSE, but detailed intro of two exams show that exam 70-413 is part one, 70-414 is part two. Does this mean it's two exams to be passed?
    And in fact the exam 70-413 and 70-414 seem as it's for 2012, not 2016. Am I right? But then, why it says MCSE 2016?
    Update: I like to strength my Azure knowledge, so I like to take 70-532, will I be given MCSE?

    Question 2
    Securing MCSA 2016
    As MS cert FAQ says, my MCSA 2012 won't expire. But why does exam says 'securing MCSA'. Does this mean if I take this one exam, I will get new MCSA 2016?

    Question 3
    After obtaining MCSE (2012 or 2016, still not clear what I will get if I take 70-413), what happens if I don't secure MCSA 2016?

    Thank you in advance.

    To gain the MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure certification, you only need to pass one elective exams.

    You can take and pass either; 70-413 or 70-413.

    You can take 'Securing Windows Server 2016' and get the MCSE CP&I, its entirely up to you. You will not get an MCSA: Server 2016 by passing this exam however.

    Your MCSA: Windows Server 2012 does not expire, it just retires when Server 2012 comes out of extended support. You can obtain the MCSA: Windows Server 2016 by passing one exam (70-743) like I did.

    Certifications: CompTIA A+, MCP, MCSA: Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016
    Studying: Exam 70-698: Installing and Configuring Windows 10
    Want: MCSA: Windows 10, MCSA: Office 365, MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure (Exam 70-744: Securing Windows Server 2016), Network+, Security+
