UPDATE: As per this thread on Born to Learn (SQL Server 2012 Certifications), beta exams will go live mid-March 2012.
While reviewing threads on the MSDN Training and Certification Forum, I read a reply from Nilkamal0007 in relation to a question on SQL Server 2012 certification. What caught my eye about this particular reply was that Nilkamal0007 provided links to exam content published in Microsoft’s exam catalogue; something I didn’t know had been published. So what does this mean? It means that the Beta cycle for these exams is close to going live.
I don’t know the exact release dates for the new SQL Server 2012 certifications (or when the beta period actually begins) however the exam catalogue does show the following:
Published: June 8, 2012 (In development)
70-466: Implementing Data Models and Reports with Microsoft SQL Server 2012

The first exam for the new SQL Server 2012 Master-level certification is scheduled to be available in beta version in June.
Looks like I better get my study cap on
