MCTS Finally - End of issues with MCP ID

Long time ago..actually 2 years back, during TechEd 2009, I knew I was on my way to becoming a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) as I had cleared the required certifications-
  1. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Configuring (70-630) &
  2. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 - Application Development (70-542)
However, as it happens, the person who was filling-in data on the computer for my certification accidentally created another MCP ID rather than continuing with my previous ID. I was unaware of this during and even after the exam for a long time.

When I realized this, I lost all the joy of clearing my 3rd MS certification and I let it be then. Also, I dumbly provided my then organization email address which was later discontinued by Windows Live services.

Fortunately, today things had to take a different turn, when I saw from one of my colleague the UX for the new MCP site. I decided I got to fix this stuff and earn my MCTS badge. So I looked up the Microsoft site and found the helpline numbers here: (for India)

The helpdesk executive was patient and she understood my issue. She was able to rectify my problem by keeping my older MCP ID and merging the result from the newer one to this. She was polite to update all contact details and replaced my old organization ID.

Voila, there I have it now.. :)

I really hope this helps someone who might have faced a similar issue with MCP ID.
