I purchased a voucher for the SCEA part 1 old version exam.. But i haven't written the exam. I heard that there is no longer available for SCEA old version exam. Which question will i get if i appear for the exam? SCEA old version or SCEA 5 ??

If still old version is available, will i able change the old version exam to SCEA 5 exam?

If you purchased the old voucher you will have to take the old exam. There is an expiration date on the voucher. This date is usually one year after you have purchased the voucher. So if your old exam voucher expires before you use it then you simply lose your money without taking the exam. Otherwise there is no way to transfer the old exam voucher to the new voucher. You may want to give sun a call to see what the deadlines are for using the old voucher.

If I'm not mistaken, the voucher you are holding is applicable for any 310 exam, SCEA 5 Part I included. Please verify with SUN or Prometric.

You should not attempt to take the Old Part I since the deadline for purchasing the Old Parts II and III was last Feb 28.

i made a clarification 2 weeks ago with Sun and she said the vouchers for old exams part 1-3 can be used for new exams part 1-3. But if you have started part 1 in old exam, you should continue the old one.
I agree. Here's the link:
