Not really. You can purchase the exam BEFORE you upload. I would suggest if you are fairly satisfied with your project, purchase the voucher for the essay exam and set a date. Then upload your project just before taking the exam (you will need to email Sun/Prometrics for upload rights).
I found that to be most efficient, to minimize the wait time for the results and keep the project fresh in your mind.
The essay exam voucher does have a 1 year expiry.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
