Passed SCJD

Just passed the SCJD with 390 points. Lost 10 points on general section.

I download the assignment in the early March and worked on it for 2 and half weeks, then submitted it and completed the essay part. Eassy part was very simple, take 45 minutes to finish all the questions.

Last week I checked

It says I failed the exam without any details notes. That worried me a lot, and I started to think about what might be wrong. So I sent email to prometric, and CSR points me to

In this website, it also says I failed the exam, but luckly it has more information on how many points I got for each section and I got 390 points in total. The required passing score is 320 points so this does not make sense, so I sent out email, luckly enough someone at sun emailed me back saying their database shows I have passed the SCJD exam, and prometric should correct this issue. Finally after email back and forth for 3 days, my score and grade in

are all correct now.

So don't easily trust the website. When you see "F" in the grade, ask why? I felt that had I not to ask prometric and sun, they would never correct the grade for me, and I would have wasted my $400.
