Hello All,

I'd like to ask if taking exams AZ 300 and AZ 304 give right to earn the 3 star badge for Azure Solution Architect Expert

@Guyrault Checking the certification page https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/certifications/azure-solutions-architect and the poster https://query.prod.cms.rt.microsoft.com/cms/api/am/binary/RE4AJyF passing AZ-303 and AZ-304 entitles you to be Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert

Hey @Julian Sharp thanks very much.

That means, I can't do any combinations of neither AZ 300+AZ 304 no AZ 303+AZ 301?

Actually I have a schedule for AZ 300 this coming September and I'd like to change it to AZ 303, so that I can take AZ 304 for the Architect Expert but i'm afraid i'll have to pay again for AZ 303 if I cancel AZ 300.

That's why i want to be totally sur of what i'm doing.

@Guyrault Sorry I read your question as AZ-303 not AZ-300

 

If you read Liberty's post on AZ-303 and AZ-304 https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-learn-blog/new-beta-exams-az-303-and-az-304-for-azu... she specially answers your question

 

I have pulled out the relevant bit below

 

The following exam combinations are valid for earning Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification:
AZ-300 and AZ-301
AZ-300 and AZ-304
AZ-301 and AZ-303
AZ-303 and AZ-304

Yes you can. But you have until around September 30, 2020 to take the AZ-300 exam.

Thanks very much for your response.
