My SCWCD Day - Result unknown!!

I finally took my SCWCD exam this morning. I would share my score, but the printers were down and the testing center couldn't tell me the score (or if I even passed)! They gave me a phone number to call ("Candidate Care"), but wouldn't let me use the phone at the testing center. So I hurried to the office to call. And guess what? "Candidate Care" says it could be 24 to 48 hours before they get my score report.

So frustrating. Months of preparation. Hours of work and worry. Tense testing morning. And now "W A I T".

Look at it this way - you'll at least know before the weekend.

All that aside, how do you think you did?

Hi Janna,

I had a similar problem when I did my SCBCD exam. The printers were down and I had to wait about 2 weeks to be sent my results.

Funnily enough, I actually recieved my certificate from Sun before I knew my results! At least at that point I knew I has passed so I relaxed!

Anyway, it all worked out fine in the end.

Best of luck...

In fact, you could get the result through the computer after you clicked *finish*. The result will then send to SUN.

Thus, you could receive your certificate before the score report.

Hi Janna Voss

Don't worry. Exact same thing happened to me too.. I asked them if I can see the score from the computer. They let me see my score.

Don't worry at all.. You would get the certificate form Sun soon

Good Luck!

I still haven't heard anything. I've called Prometric (the testing company)about 7 times in the last 3 days. First I was told it would take 24 hours, then I was told 24 - 48 hours. Next person said 48 - 72 hours. It would appear they don't actually know when the data will be available.

Can't help but wonder, why design a system that only provides data via a printer (vs. a screen)? I'd probably be fired if I designed software like that.

Yes, I'm quite frustrated by this.

I would ask the testing center to give some of the $150 back if I were you. They probably make a nice profit for renting out decrepit office space on the wrong side of town.

I agree. Here's the link:
