      Since this is Beta - any info on when we will actually know if we've passed or not?  The Beta documentation states that the information will be sent when the exam goes "live".  However it's not clear when AZ120 is live so...

      No clarity as this moment. Even I have checked with couple of guys in Microsoft but failed to get concrete info.

      Better to check time-to-time :

      That's right. More than likely it will be early 2020, perhaps by Q1.
