Microsoft May Extend Deadline on NT 4.0 Exams

Microsoft is considering an extension on the deadline for completing three key NT 4.0 exams to Feb. 28, 2001.

According to sources outside Microsoft, the company is considering an extension on the deadline for completing three key Windows NT 4.0 exams (70-067 Server, 70-068 Server in the Enterprise, and 70-073 Workstation). The new deadline is conjectured to be Feb. 28, 2001.

Sources say the extension consideration is likely the result of the influx of test takers who have been turned away from test centers due to test slots being filled to capacity. Simply put, seats have sold briskly and Microsoft may extend the deadline at the behest of test centers, so that those centers can accommodate candidates for another two months.

Members of the Microsoft Certification and Training group couldn't be reached for confirmation.

Microsoft isn't expected to extend the deadline for updating MCSE certification to the Windows 2000 track. MCSEs who have certified on NT 4.0 will still need to take the new exams by the end of 2001 in order to retain their certification titles.

More details will be posted as the story develops.
