3 weeks ago I handed in SCJD and did the essay exam. I got a page that said thank you for uploading and then waited. Today I found out that certmanager have a landing page that displayed your test history as well as other history. Is there is no record of my upload of assignment to the site? Surely it is to display there?
SCJP 6.0, SCJD (400/400), SCBCD for JEE 5, SCWCD 1.4 I do videos for development at
I am probably the only developer ever to have had an orange sized brain tumor in my brain while learning development!!
This is how it went with me (and I think it is supposed to go like this):
- in the CertManager (the web-application you used to download/upload your assignment) a record will show up in the test-history when your assignment is graded. Time for grading is approximately 4 until 6 weeks (mine was graded after exact 4 weeks).
- in the CertDatabase you will see in the event history a record with effective date equel to the date you took the essay exam and description is something like "(310-027) Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform (310-027) - Pending...". If you see that it means they got your essay exam and the grading process will start (and so does the 4 until 6 weeks wait). If it's not there, you will have to send a mail to who2contact, because apparently there is a problem with communication between prometric and sun
- if your score is shown in the CertManager, you will have to wait a 10 days and then the result will also show up in the CertDatabase (and you will see that the "Pending..."-message is changed into "Replaced" and a new record is created with description "(310-027) Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform (310-027) - Passed"). And from that moment you will also see new records being added concerning the certification kit (which will take 2-3 weeks to arrive at your address, depending on where you live).
I know the waiting is a bit frustrating, but not seeing your result after 3 weeks is normal, because it takes mostly 4 to 6 weeks.
The record in my history has an event date of May 16 (just one day after I took the essay exam). But I honestly don't know when it was added to my history, but according to the event date I would say the day after the essay exam.
