I saw there was two attempt that can be made for Azure Beta Exams. If I want to get access to the second exam, do I have to complete the first beta exam by any means? (Asking this as I do not have the needed time to study for Azure as the beta exam expires tomorrow)
Yes. You have to try beta. However, If you fail the exam, you will have another opportunity to take it once the beta has concluded. This will be at no cost to you and the INE team will communicate when all second attempts may begin.
