The countdown is on … Prodigy Learning is delighted to announce the UK Final of the MOS UK Championship will take place at Microsoft UK’s London Paddington Office on June 15, 2016.
In February the first 9 UK Finalists were announced (chosen from thousands of eligible MOS exams taken during the First Qualifying Round between October 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015).
