Microsoft will retire a group of exams on March 31, 2017. This leaves you with just two weeks to take an exam before it disappears forever! We looked into the Microsoft exam retirements more deeply last month. Let’s now take a look at the exams that are just two weeks away from their final days.

Microsoft’s exam retirements form part of a larger overhaul of the certification structure that led to five new expert-level certification pathways.
MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure
MCSE: Data Management and Analytics
MCSD: App Builder
The new certifications offer a variety of exams that learners can choose from to create a certification that is more relevant to their current needs. It is possible to create expert-level certifications that can be customized by learners. This allows them to choose the skills and knowledge that they need rather than following a rigid curriculum, which may not be relevant as often under the old certification structure.
