I want to know when I write my SCEA Part 1 exam. can I immediately apply for the Part 2 exam or I have to wait till I get the certificate. And How much time can I take to complete SCEA Part 2 exam. Do I have to submit with in a week or can I take 3-4 Months to submit? I have two Vouchers with me and I want to avail them and I have no time. They get expired by Dec last. If I plan to write SCEA part 1 on Dec 20 and if I pass the exam, Can I apply for the next exam and download it on Dec 21? Or should I have to wait some 10-15 days?
You can take Part II right after Part I clear. However keep in mind that Sun normally takes couple of days to setup the assignment for download after part 1 is cleared and you send them the part II voucher info (if purchased before part I).
Part II can be done in one year though most folks did in one week to 1 month time frame. If voucher is expiring soon and I think you may need to submit before it's expiry.
