Just found out my score at http://www.certmanager.net/sun_assignment/assignment.html.

Score: 99
Comment: This report shows the total points that could have been awarded in each section and the actual amount of points you were awarded. This information is provided in order to give you feedback on your relative strengths on a section basis. The maximum number of points you could have received is 100, minimum to pass is 70. Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 44 Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 43 Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 12

I submitted my assignment on 7/28 and took part III on 7/31. The 3 weeks of waiting was agonizing, but bearable.
During preparation of my assignment, I monitored this forum daily for guidance and inspiration. Just want to say thank you to everyone.
I am finally a SCEA.

My assignment consists of the following artifacts:
1 class diagram
5 sequence diagrams
2 component diagram
1 deployment diagram

8-9 bullet points on assumptions and design choices.

Tomas,
I guess I will ask the most repeated and beaten to death question:

did you have to change the business domain model relationships to complete your design( things like association btw flight/segment, multiplicity etc)?

I did not have to make major changes to BDO. However, I did take out and introduce objects to the business domain. My feeling is that minor discrepancies between your design and the original BDO are OK as long as you can justify them.

Congrats Tom!

May I justify from the numbers of your artifacts that one of your goals was to provide the most simple solution as possible?
Especially the number of bulletpoints in your assumptions file is very appealing

Now don't tell my that your diagrams are terribly complex and contain tons of elements each

Keep up,
Harbo

I elaborated as much as I could on each assumption and design choice. I think the whole thing was about 2 pages.
I was worried about my sequence diagrams up till the last minute. I had switched between with and without the presentation layer several times before finally settling on including it. My biggest sequence diagram has about 20 some objects across on top. In addition, I added descriptions on the left hand side. So you can imagine the width. But I guess that's OK since the grader didn't take any points for being detail-oriented.
A significant portion of my time was devoted to polishing up the final product. I figured since I had already spent this much time on the damn thing, I should let them take points away from me because of stupid mistakes.
Following people's advices on this forum, I didn't prepare for part III in particular and felt I did pretty well. The questions in the exam are problems I have to deal with at work. So I had no problem with them.
