Sumit,

We can do that. If you purchased Simulator 2020 but then decided that you will be taking your exam in 2021, we will switch you to Simulator 2021. Please write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and ask for the switch.

Please note:
- The switch from Sim 2020 to Sim 2021 is only possible if you have not used Sim 2020.
- After the switch, you will only have access to Sim 2021. Your access to Sim 2020 will be turned off.

Hi,
I failed for the first exam in 2020, my access to the simulator 2020 is good to go until Jan 2021, I planned to take the second try in 2021. based on the previous questions, may I ask for 90 additional free extension and at the same time switch to 2021 Simulator ?
I appreciate all your help.

Hello. Today I had to change my exam date from end of December 2020 to mid-January 2021. I just activated the Simulator 2020 yesterday and took a 10 question quiz. I would prefer to access the Simulator 2021 now since I will be taking the 2021 exam and have only used the Simulator 2020 for ten questions. Please let me know if that is possible. I purchased my PM PrepCast Elite Plus Account on Nov. 28, 2020.

Thank you.

Your best option is to purchase an extension to simulator 2020. In that way, your simulator is still active on 2020-Dec-31, which means you will receive 90-day access to Simulator 2021 ad discussed in the video.

Yes. If you purchased the simulator but never used it (not yet activated or tried only a quiz or two) then you will be automatically upgraded in early January.

Hello. I just bought the simulator access. In your offer on www.pm-exam-simulator.com/pmp-exam-simul...578637108.1604664995
it is clearly stated without any conditions(!!!):
If you purchase The PMP Exam Simulator 2020 in the year 2020, then please be aware of the following two special conditions to consider:
Accessible until 2021-March-31: Your access to The PM Exam Simulator 2020 will continue into the year 2021. This means that you will receive your full 90 days of access. All access to Simulator 2020 will be turned off on 2021-April-01.
Free Upgrade to Simulator 2021: During the first 10 days of January 2021 you will receive a free upgrade to Simulator 2021. This will be full 90-day access to the 2,100 questions of the new simulator. (Please note that this access will automatically end after 90 days).

But after payment proceeded you are suddenly saying that it will be upgrared only if it has not been activated by 31 Dec 2020. This is a serious ethical and legal issue in my view which I am going to report to PMI with screenshots.
Please confirm that my simulation will be upgrated or give my money back.

@ Dauren

Your understanding is correct. We will automatically upgrade users of the 2020 simulator in the first days of the new year, as long as their access to the 2020 simulator has not expired.

But there is a second group of students, and I think that is where the confusion happened: The other statement you are referring is in regards to students who want an immediate and manual switch from 2020 to 2021. So for example, if someone purchased the 2020 simulator and then realized that they actually needed the 2021 simulator right away. Here, we will manually switch them to the new version, but only if they haven't used the old version yet.

Based on how you describe your situation, you fall into the first category: This means that in early January, we will automatically upgrade you to the 2021 simulator. No worries.

Hi Cornelius, I had purchased the PMP Exam Simulator 2020. I used up the 2020 version; My 90-day subscription ended on 19-December-2020. I appeared for the test on 16th-Dec-2020 but unfortunately didn't passed the test. Now I am planning for a test sometime in January 2021. Do I qualify for an upgrade to Simulator 2021?

@ Samit,

First of all, I'm really sorry to hear that you didn't pass your exam at first. That is unfortunate and frustrating.

As far as the upgrade goes... you don't and you do at the same time. Technically - because your account expired - you don't qualify. But... we offer a free 90-day extension for those who didn't pass their exam and this means that you do.

Please write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to ask for the extension. You have to include a screenshot that shows you didn't pass your exam. Tell the support team that you will be taking your exam in 2021 and they will be adding Simulator 2021 to your account. You can even include a link back to this message here to tell them that I've approved this for you.

Dear Cornelius,
Thanks for taking the time to explain things clearly
It was a great relief after watching your video and the free extension
My Subscription for the 2020 prepcast ends in Feb 2021
I used two only two mocks but didn't appear for the exam.
As per my understanding, my precast will be automatically extended to new 2021 right?

Thanks

Yes, Arun,

You will receive a 90-day subscription for the 2021 simulator. Please note that the subscription will be activated on the day that it's added (around January 4). This means that it will expire 90 days after we grant you the free access.

Hello Cornelius,

Oh. I've updated my query. Just noted someone has asked the same query as mine and you've replied that in the threads.
> Below is my understanding. I'm using the 2020 and done some quizzes/EXAM before 31 Dec 2020 and I will be upgraded to 2021 by first 10 days automatically.

But how can I know if my account is upgraded to 2021 on Jan? Will there any email or do I need to login again to check it?

Hi!
I have failed my exam twice.
My current 2020 Simulator expires on 15 March 2021. Does this mean that from now till 15 March 2021, I'll get access to the 2021 exam questions Simulator? However, I intend to take my exam in April after much preparation and practice, will I qualify for an upgrade?

Hi, My exam with Pearson Vue was scheduled for 12/30/2020, I was never allowed to take the exam due to technical difficulty on Perason Vue's end. I called PMI yesterday and they told me I have to take the new exam. My Simulator expired in December. Do I qualify for an upgrade to Simulator 2021?

I have the Pearson Vue trouble ticket # and an email from PMI stating I have to take the new exam.

Question about the PMPrep Cast Course (Premier). If i bought that in 2018 is that course still valid for the 2021 exam? I never activated my 2018 purchased simulator and already emailed about getting the 2021 simulator, but want to make sure that the course education is still valid as well.
