I'm guessing the old exam will be around for 6 months to 1 year starting from that date.
But don't take my word for it, it's purely guesswork.
[When SCEA 5 arrived, I think the old SCEA was available until 1 year after SCEA 5's arrival.]
Like what Kengkaj suggested, why not take the newer version instead?

Since 1.5 is relatively new, one can expect the 1.4 to be continued for a considerable amount of time.
That said, why not opt for the newer version when there isn't big change in the objectives?
For the updated exam the best reference based on other posts is still RMH book.
Just like in the older version of the exam.
