I was trying to start to schedule a few exams, and noticed that there are several versions of the same exam (I think). For example:

Microsoft - 070-461 - Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012
Microsoft Academic - 072-461 - Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012
Microsoft IT Academic Exam - 073-461 - Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012

The reason I asked, was one simple confusion; and two the price to take each one is very different: $150, $83, $72, at the place that I was looking at testing. Call me crazy but why would I spend the extra 70 bucks if I don't have to? I think this probably has something to do with if one is a college student or something, but i'm not positive? Any thoughts?

That exactly it. Although I'm still not clear on the difference between the 072 and 073 exams the Prometric website says:

If you belong to an academic institution, join the Microsoft IT Academy program, an alliance that provides students with a premium education on cutting-edge Microsoft technologies.


I got that text from this site: https://www.prometric.com/en-us/clients/Microsoft/pages/landing.aspx
