I personally don't think any more free Beta exam slots will be made available.
One of the main reasons for the free Beta exams is so that Sun can get feedback on the questions and answers - so that they can determine if a question or answer needs to be reworded and/or removed. They also need a number of candidates to take the exam so that they can see what the average scores are going to look like, so that they can work out what the pass mark will be on the real exam.
To do this, they need a certain number of candidates. However once they have that number of candidates, adding extra candidates will not gain them very much, however it will slow down the time before the real exam can be released, as extra time will be needed to look at the comments made by the extra candidates.
However, if Sun are finding that not enough candidates who signed up for the exam are actually taking it, then they may open up more slots. Normally if this happens, Evelyn Cartenga will create a new post with the details in this forum.
it was written on website that registration is till 20th june ..and no where its written that its on first cum first serve basis..
Sun pls do something for your devotees.

I will assume you are unfamiliar with forum ettiquet, but in any forum it is considered unsociable to post the same content in more than one topic. For information on why, please read Use One Thread Per Question.
As to your perception that Sun are being unfair, please read my topic "Please stop asking for extensions on beta / complaints".

hello andrew, if sun view's all these messages then it should give the chance to register for the exam (according to the date i.e 20th june)apart from this is there any chance to contact directly on this issue.
Sorry, but the deadline has passed and Sun will not re-open registration. there was plenty of time before the deadline for people to register. I am sorry that you heard about this exam too late, but that happens.
