Each exam has a unique code that contains the number of the module the exam corresponds to, plus an optional alphabetic version identifier. SOACP exam codes that end with a “B” represent exams that are part of the second generation SOACP curriculum. SOACP exam codes that end with an “A” represent exams that are part of the first generation SOACP curriculum. For example, Exam S90.01B is the code for the exam that corresponds to SOACP Module 1: Fundamental SOA, Services & Microservices and Exam S90.01A is the code for the previous version of this exam that corresponds to SOACP Module 1: Fundamental SOA & Service-Oriented Computing.

Honors Designation

Exams that are passed with a grade that is 10 or more percentage points greater than the passing grade are considered to have been passed with honors. 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.

Whether you pass exams with a regular passing grade or with an honors grade is shown in your exam history on your AITCP account. If you pass all exams within a certification track with honors, a special version of the certificate is issued indicating that the accreditation was attained with honors and displaying a special gold-colored seal.
