Where is my grade?

I did submit my coding assignment the last week of June. Then on July 1st of 2006I went and submitted the essay exam. I got a printed paper confirming that I have submittedthe essay exam and that within 4 to 6 weeks I would know the score of my certification.

On August 15th of 2006 exactly 6 weeks from my submission date of the essay exam I sent them a note requesting an status.

On August 21st I got an email asking me to confirm my name and
address so they could send the certificate materials. so i though i passed.....

On August 24th I get an email saying that my assignment has just been submitted to an assessor for grading and that I will know the score 2 to 4 weeks from now. What is going on??

I am very disappointed. I have done my part:

1/ Completed a very hard ambiguous (at times) assignment
2/ Paid $450

What do I get?

1/ 3 months wait to find out the score.

Did this happen to anybody else?

Hi, Antonio.

Sometimes the avaliation process takes a long time... When I submitted the SCEA assignment, it took 5 weeks until I get my grade in Galton site.

I think you must look at the paper you received in the Prometric Center. This paper has a e-mail to where you can ask for your assignment information.

Good luck!

The excuse in most big companies at this time of the year is usually "Holiday Time". I hope you hear good news soon, however.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
