Complete and Partial Exam Versions

Exam S90.MSA is a combined exam that encompasses topics from multiple SOACP course modules. There are two versions of this exam available: A complete version that covers topics from SOACP Modules 1, 2, 9, 10 and 11 and a partial version that only covers topics from SOACP Modules 9, 10 and 11. If you have already achieved passing grades on Exams S90.01B and S90.02B or if you have achieved a passing grade on another combined SOACP exam from Arcitura, then you can choose the partial exam option to avoid being retested on topics related to those exams and modules. If you have not yet achieved passing grades on Exams S90.01B and S90.02B, then it is recommended that you choose the complete exam option to take the complete Microservice Architect Certification Exam.

When you register for Exam S90.MSA with Pearson VUE, you will not be asked to choose between the partial or complete version. This is an option that is presented to you at the time that you take the exam at the testing center or via online proctoring.

For example, if an exam’s passing grade is 70%, then a grade of 80% or higher is required for the exam to be considered to have been passed with honors.
