    Hi - I've passed 2 of the 3 exams required for this certification. Does anyone know how long I have to pass all 3 please? Is there a time limit? e.g. do I need to pass all 3 exams within 2 years of passing the first one?

    Until the exams are retired and no longer available for anyone to write.

    this page specifically says, for SQL 2012, no retirement for exams are planned at this time:

    SQL Server

    As with SharePoint, we see only the planned retirement of recertification exams. Despite the existence of SQL Server 2014 and the arrival of SQL Server 2016, there are still no plans to retire exams aligned to SQL Server 2012 and the associated MCSA.
