How long to get results?

I uploaded my assignment on 4/18 and took the written test on 4/26, but still have not seen any results on Certmanager. Should I at least be seeing some confirmation that I did upload and take the written, even if the results aren't yet available? Or will nothing show up until the final score is ready? I know they say 3-5 weeks, but it seems that most folks get their results a lot quicker than that.

If you log into the prometric website (rather than the certification manager) it should list you as "tested" for the SCJD exam.
I took the exam about a week and a half ago and I am listed on the prometric website as "tested" but there is no sign on the certification manager site that I have uploaded my assignment or taken the exam.
I assume nothing will appear there until the assignment/exam have been marked and I am told if I have passed or failed.
I was told 4-6 weeks on my printout after I'd sat the exam.
As it has to be marked by a human being, I'm sure that's where the vast majority of delay occurs - some people are very efficient and timely, others less so or just more prone to procrastination. If the SCJD assessors are like anyone else I know, I guess some of them will mark stuff quicker than others. It's the luck of the draw who our assignments get allocated to.
Good luck with getting the result you want soon!

Always proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Thanks for the info! I hadn't thought about checking the Prometric site. Yep, I see "tested" there. Guess I'll just have to be a bit more patient.

Prometric's Cert Manager site is the only place you will find your grade.
Sun does not send you an e-mail letting you know when gradinhg is complete.

Hi, I've uploaded the assignment a few days ago. Could any one tell me the address to the Prometric's Cert Manager ?

Hi Ray,
You should be able to monitor your progress on the same site you uploaded your assignment to.
