We have over 300 videos and can’t remember what is in all of them.

When do exams expire?

My exam has expired can I still sit it?
If the exam is listed as expired go to www.prometric.com and see if you can still book it. If they are still allowing you to schedule an exam you can still sit it and it will count. However, I would not waste any time because once you can no longer schedule a test you can no longer sit that test at all.
