AdWords Academy - Exams Expiring Too Early!

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Last week my AdWords Fundamentals certification was due to expire (10th Feb 18). I had also previously passed 2 other AdWords Exams (Mobile Advertising and Search Advertising) but these weren't due to expire until May 2018. I have retaken and passed my Fundamentals exam again, but then noticed that my other exams had expired too in the new Academy for Ads interface even though they weren't due to expire for another 3 months.


Has anyone else experienced this since the switchover? I know I can retake the exams again anytime but is there a way to reinstate them so that at least I don't have to retake them for another 3 months as per the agreement?
