I took mine on May 26th. Still showing as "Taken" on the Pearson Vue portal. It's 10pm in the UK.

Looks like another false promise from VMware.

Well the 28th has come and nearly gone, still no update on Pearson Vue.  Still nothing to take to my employer save an email from VMWare that says 'hey you passed but it won't be entered until 9/28 at the earliest'.

Seriously, this is just terrible.  First and last beta I ever take from VMWare.

I suppose I'm not the only one who hasn't received any notification. Even their certification helpdesk can't give me a straight answer.

Few ppl here claimed thay got emails with results: VCP6 Beta results : vmware

However for myself status on Pearson site is still 'TAKEN' and no email...

I also don't think I wouldn't bother taking part in Beta in the future. It might be cheaper, but I prefer to know if I passed or not quicker than after 4 months...

Just checked my transcript for the last time tonight. Still nothing. I'm not too worried about it because I already got the preliminary results.

I wouldn't say that this will be my last beta exam. Luckily, I wasn't in the same boat as a lot of people who relied on this exam to renew their VCP expiration date. Sure, we had to wait 4 months to even get the preliminary results, but if I can save myself or my employer $175, then thats fine with me.

But for the future, VMware, please be careful with deadlines and date ranges. As you can see, people go crazy with it and if you are one minute late, all hell breaks loose. And if you do go over a deadline that you set, be open and honest with everyone. Make a blog post, send out an email, inform your support staff. We all have questions and would like the actual reason for the missed deadline. Not a bunch of fluff designed to shut us up.

Thank you.

Problem is it wasn't "one minute late" - there was first deadline: 8-10 weeks.

8 weeks passed - no information.

10 weeks - no information

Then second deadline was revealed (28/09), but it also passed and still no results.

In my case I still have plenty of time to recertify, but for others - it might be an issue.

it will be a ridicoulous situation ... seems that we can't get the results in 19 weeks ... about the double of the promise time ...

No word at all !

You wont get that.


They did the same thing during the VCP 4 beta exam.

Tests were completed by July. Results didn't come until October.
If we go by that timetable we wont get anything until December.

According to this tweet, looks like there has been "technical issues" - https://twitter.com/vAlexBarron/status/648871336626925569

I don't really care what the problem is. Just someone from VMware COMMUNICATE with your users/customers.

Does anyone from VMware actually look through these forums?

"I would like to inform you that the Beta results were to be announced on 28th September, due to some technical issue the results have not been generated, I request you to wait for another 2 to 3 days for the results."

Just read through all of these. As you've all said it, this is ridiculous the amount of time it has taken. 4 months has made moving forward or in the other case resitting the exam hard. 

According to my preliminary results, I failed. Unfortunately, due to being in limbo mode and not knowing what was happening, i have spent the last 2 months on other certifications when I should have been studying up hard to resit.

A preliminary result is more than many people received.

Yep, I still don't know if I passed or failed. At this point I'm working on other certifications and avoiding VMware for a year.

It appears like this hellride may be far from over just yet.

A comment from today at the blog post (https://blogs.vmware.com/education/2015/09/update-on-vcp6-beta-exam-results.html😞

I just got off the phone with VMware. The certification advocate told me the technical delay could postpone these results by another month or two. I was told however they would be extending the current expiration window by 2 months but that really doesn’t address the issue.

Who cares about scoring beta exams of some mere peasants who only paid discount prices in the first place, when VMware is busy revolutionizing the IT world as we know it?

Why I consider this funny but not strange?

Somebody at certification team watched too much Monty Python.

Latest update from VMware Education blog post says:

Ed. Update 9/30/2015:

We have an update on the Beta exam results:

Our vendor is working on these results and we expect to have them by the end of the week for the 2V0-621 exam. Transcripts will be updated once they work through our system. Once those results are processed, they will begin working on the 2V0-620 results.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope 2V0-621 also includes 2V0-621D...

From a yesterday night mail from VMware education:

"Hello Riccardo,

We apologize for the delay from the 28th, we work through an exam vendor and we had to go through a couple of QA checks.

The results were approved last night and went out via mail today. You should have them shortly."

Maybe will the good day for all?

Bye
