Congrats Prakash. Nice job.
I guess you weren't like the rest of us that couldn't wait to get the score, and kept logging on to the Cert Manager 50 times a day till they posted the score.
Good luck on whatever is next for you.

I was logging on to the database till the 2nd of June, but forgot about the entire thing after that, because of so many things happening at work. There were some acquisitions and hostile take overs and stuff enuf to keep most of us preoccupied (and confused!!)
Most of us were worried about their jobs, thats why I did not check the database...
Anway, all is well that ends well...
Thanks a lot.

Waaa? When do you get your score? I thought it's all electronic, so you know immediately after you take the exam.

You do get your score straight after the SCJP and SCWCD exams, because they are 100% MCQ and can be marked by the computer.
The SCJD assignment, together with your essay exam have to be assessed by a human being, so these are sent away and it takes a few weeks (Sun says 4-6 weeks) for the stuff to be marked and for your results to be uploaded in Sun's and Prometric's databases. And you don't get notified when your result is ready - you just have to do what most (if not all!) of us did and log in and check over an over again to see when the results are there (I limited myself to a few hundred times a day when I was waiting).
I agree. Here's the link:
