Schedule SCCM Certification Exam 70-703
As expected and informed to MVPs earlier (privately), Microsoft released a new certification exam 70-703 for SCCM and Intune professionals! SCCM Certification Exam 70-703 is open to schedule now.
I have discussed Microsoft exam certifications in the previous post. I recommend reading that post to get more details! Latest SCCM CB Intune Microsoft Certification Exam 70-703. The cost of SCCM Certification Exam 70-703 is 165 USD.
SCCM Intune Microsoft Certification Exam 70-703 Register it Now! Administering Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) and Cloud Services Integration (Intune, Azure AD, Microsoft Store?) is available as a beta exam (more details below).

What is Microsoft SCCM Certification Exam 70-703?
No Beta exam is available for SCCM Certification Exam 70-703!
Microsoft introduced a new model for beta exams! This is because of increasing NO SHOW rates for 100% free beta exams. The model beta codes will be an 80% discount off the exam price rather than a 100% discount.
So once you have taken a beta exam by paying 20% of the fees then, that 20% you paid when registering for the beta exam will be applied to the next exam that you take within one year.
I hope, this approach will help reduce the EXAM DUMP availability for 70-703. Exam dumps are why genius SCCM admins are not getting proper credit for passing the exam.
Beta Exam Model Change = 20 % of Fees
What are the Major Topics included in SCCM Certification Exam 70-703 70-703 Exam?
Folks are worried about the content of 70-703. I received comments in my previous post. The new exam could be simply advertising new and old Intune features, and I would recommend throwing your on-premise SCCM away and in moving to the MS cloud.
So, Microsoft is investing loads of money into SCCM development, and SCCM will NOT die soon. The content of exams 70-703 is ~80% pure SCCM and then ~20% Intune hybrid.
- Configure and Maintain a Configuration Manager Management Infrastructure (30-35%)
- Manage Inventory by Using Configuration Manager (10-15%)
- Manage Applications by Using Configuration Manager (15-20%)
- Deploy and Maintain Operating Systems by using Configuration Manager (15-20%)
- Extend the Management Scope of Configuration Manager (5-10%)
- Deploy and Manage Hybrid MDM by Using Configuration Manager and Intune (15-20%)
So if you are looking for 100% pure Intune content, 70-703 is NOT the exam for you. You should look for some pure cloud Azure + Intune exams in the Microsoft live exam list.
70-703 – SCCM Exam or Intune Exam? = SCCM

I see you mentioned the exam was available on beta, is there a link to that, unless I missed it. I found the site in MS page for the regular price, but beta would be awesome just finished the training for it.
AT this point of time, I don’t have detailed LINK of Beta Exam. We may need to contact Microsoft Learning (or partners) to get more details about 80% off coupons!
I’ve experience about 2 years working on SCCM 2012 where primarily I did software packaging OSD and windows updates. Should 70-703 is something I can try? Need your thoughts.
In the link above there is a statement that ways
“Remember: There are a limited number of spots, so when they’re gone, they’re gone. You should also be aware that there are some country limitations where the beta code will not work (e.g., Turkey, Pakistan, India, China, Vietnam); you will not be able to take the beta exam in those countries.”
Does this mean NO BETA EXAM IN INDIA…? So how would this work, like, a direct and complete exam…?
Thank you .. I confirmed with Microsoft and this is valid information
Its seems it is not valid for India loaction.
below is the error while discount validation :
Discount validation failed.
Exam: 703, May 12 at 12:00 PM
This discount cannot be used with appointments scheduled in India.
Is there any other way ? Please help
Yes the discount coupon is not valid for those locations 🙁
Silly MS does it again. Some or the other way to ruin the happiness of an ardent follower. I was all prepared to give this exam tomorrow but I went thru the entire process just to find out that I can’t give it as I’m in a “special” country. 🙁
Yes 🙁 Is anyone would like to contact Microsoft India?
So sorry to hear of this, guys. Let me escalate this to the global team and come back to you with what I can do to fix this.
Thank you much Deepak! You are awesome ! I really appreciate your helping hand here!
