    Default Has anyone passed MCSA Windows Server 2012 using electives in last 2 months?

    Hi All,
    since I am having discussion with MS regarding their removal of option to use one of the electives instead of 70-412 exam in order to acquire MCSA Windows Server 2012 and MS is pretty much stating that this option was removed on end of the March 2017, I would like to ask if anyone here who passed it this way in last two months and would be willing to share their certification transcript so I can force MS to look into this further.

    Thanks in advance.

    I though you could take the 70-409 in place of of the 70-412?

    According to MS from end of March 2017 not anymore, but they never posted it anywhere. Only valid path according to them is to take 70-410, 70-411 and 70-412.

    Nevertheless there are people on this forum who stated that they got it using electives just few weeks ago so I am calling them out to share their cert transcript so we can get MS straight on this...

    I already asked him to, but he sent me only screen shot of his cert planner which is useless since it does not contain any dates.

    I am talking to them and all they said so far that this was discontinued at the end of March 2017. When I told them that there are people who got it just a few weeks ago this way they asked to provide cert transcript so they could check it...

    If Microsoft said "this was discontinued at the end of March 2017" - where is the proof? Where the link with this information?
