Hi
I was intending to give PMP exam for 5th addition before 26th March but my prometric center does not have any date available in march anymore. Does that mean I I will have to prepare for 6th edition exam.
Is there a possibility that I can give 5th edition exam in April ?
All this time I was preparing for 5th edition..What should I do and where should I start.

Vipasha,

This is not unexpected. Because the exam is changing in March there are hundreds, even thousands more people trying to get their exam completed. Unfortunately you only have two options:

1.) Go back to the website every single day (maybe even multiple times per day) to see if someone has cancelled so that you can take their spot.

2.) Check other testing centers in your greater area for a seat. This means that you may have to travel a longer distance to take your exam, but at least you found a seat for the exam.

And yes. the exam changes on 26-March-2018. If you take the exam on/after this date then your exam will be based on PMBOK Sixth Edition. PMI does not make any exceptions.

If anyone is planning to sit for the CAPM exam, 5th edition, they can use a proctored route and they have up to mid May.

I intend taking the exams beyond March 2018. Will I get access to OSP International's Package (podcast, simulator, etc) for the 6th edition of the PMBOK Guide, or I will be required to purchase it?

This is true for CAPM. But the monopolist Prometric testing center allows it till 11.03.2018 only. So, for me I have to do the online proctoring in my office.

Hi Cornelius, I am scheduled to take the PMP exam on March 3rd (wish me luck!). I have high confidence and hopes of passing, but on the chance that I fail, will I be able to retake the same test using the 5th edition after March 26? Or must I pass before March 26th or start over with the 6th edition?
Thank you

Lori,

The dates that PMI has published are HARD cut-off dates. Anyone taking the exam on/after 26-March-2018 will have to take it based on the 6th edition. PMI does not make any exceptions. But why worry? You'll pass!

I am studying for the PMP-ACP and will not be ready for the March 26th deadline. When will your new prepcast for the ACP be ready?

Vee,

No need to worry. The upcoming changes to the PMI-ACP exam are minor and mostly about language. For example, they are now calling it an "iteration" instead of a "sprint".

Please listen to this interview for the details on what is changing on the PMI-ACP Exam: traffic.libsyn.com/pmpodcast/PM_Podcast_..._24_alicia_burke.mp3
