Skipped the exam

Hi Ranchers,

I skipped the exam considering the fact that Sun is targeting SCJA towards Java beginners and hence my registration for the exam was a mistake.

But as what Andrew said, if you had registered the exam (which took away other's opportunity), you should go for it. Your comments might be valuable to SUN.

Hi Ashish,

I committed the mistake of assumming SCJA to be a "Sun Certified Junior Architect" and registered. If you are Ashish Sarin from Gurgaon Jug & friend of Raju bhai, please email me at kay_mahesh@yahoo.com .

Hi Nicholas,

I lost interest after reading comments on Java "experts" appearing for SCJA. Its true that I took away another candidate's oppurtunity, I tried to transfer the coupon, but that did not workout. I did not see any point in writing an exam without any interest.

It is really hard to say as this is the issue of rights and responsibility. If you pay for the test, while you give it up finally, it would be totally fine. However this is not the case.

Anyway, hoping that only a few guys behave like this. SUN might revise their beta policies, and we would be the guys who suffered finally.

yes and i think all the SCJP , SCJD and so on should have done the same... most come back saying how easy and fun this was... perhaps because the examn wasen't targeted at you... i just hope sun will have a way to filter those people out so some of the ones it was targeted at can pass.
