    I have met the requirements by Up-leveling to VCAP, but I have not received the voucher still.
    I wrote to Certification support, but I got reply:
    “you will receive a voucher for VCP6 exam in case you have met the recertification date using the VCP5 Delta exam”

    It is different from you wrote here

    What’s the difference between taking the actual VCPN610 and the new beta exam for VCP6-NV, the 2V0-641 ? Does either one lead to the same result, a certification on VCP6-NV?

    Hi Paul can we try the delta beta exam without using the discount then if I fail can I use the discount on the normal delta exam once it exits beta?

    Cheers,

    Hi Paul,

    “This VCP6 Recertification 65% discount may be applied for exam appointments before August 31, 2015.”

    As per above statement, it seems we have only 2 days 30th Aug and 31st Aug to make appointment to get 65% discount. As VCP-dcv will be available for appointment from only 30th Aug onwards. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I met original deadline by re-certifying on March 9 2015, passing VCP6 Desktop exam.
    The discount code is not working for me, and I was just informed by Pearson Vue that “…. We have been advised that in order to be eligible for the discount, RECERT65, VMWare candidates would have to re-certify between March 10, 2014 and March 10, 2015 for the following exams:
    · VCPN610: VMware Certified Professional – Network Virtualization
    · VCP550: VMware Certified Professional – Data Center Virtualization
    · VCPD510: VMware Certified Professional – Desktop
    · VCI550: VMware Certified Instructor on vSphere 5
    · VCP550D: VMware Certified Professional 5 – Data Center Virtualization Delta Exam
    · VCPC550: VMware Certified Professional – Cloud,VCP510-DT: VMware View
    · VCP510: VMware Certified. Professional 5 – Data Center Virtualization…. ”

    This is outrageous. It does not make sense to allow discount eligibility for re-certifying with VCP5 Desktop exam, but not with VCP6 Desktop ?!?!?!?!?!
    I should be eligible for discount according to information posted earlier.
