Does Grade "P" means Pass?

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.
I agree. Here's the link:
