Initially for last 1 month next to Part 3 it use to show Grade as "T" ( which i assumed as "Taken") and score 0.

Today It's shows Grade as "P" with score 0.

Does it mean that i passed? or does it mean pending?. I have Grade "P" next to Part 1 which i had cleared earlier.

Very anxious to know if anybody has inputs.

I tried to contact Sun via email ( send mail to all possible email addresses i could find) regarding score showing 0. but no reply and it's been 1 week.

It is soo disappointing that we spend so much money on giving this certification and we don't even get a response ( be it any response). Not even a response!

I only hope they improve there customer service.

Hi Pravin,

I too am seeing P today next to Part-3 at

Does it mean Passed? Still confused.

However, the certification database site is not showing as Passed. It is showing as Pending.

Please clarify, this is very confusing.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
