I did take sun 6 month to correct my scjd assignment.
When I upload it I notice I had packet it wrong so I contact the sun support for make a re-upload they sad it would normally cost but they would make a exception but nothing happened I send mail who2conntact but I was getting a replay from a different person all the time with different answers.
After 3 month of mailing I contact the Swedish sun sale office they told me that it was not allow to do a re-upload and that you should have to buy a new certification luckily I had the mail copy that sad I would get a re-upload for free so then they sad they would fix this issue.
So then two weeks passed and then I got a new mail that told me to upload my assignment then 1 month pass and nothing did happened so I contacted who2conntact they sad that I had been registered on the wrong testing ID and that it would take 2 weeks to fix it and 4 week to correct the assignment and yesterday I got my SCJP certification diploma.
Also last year when I did SCJWC certificate I never got the real certificate diploma luckily I had the document that I got from the testing center so the explanation I got was that had got different testing ID.
So a summary of this I think SUN certification support is one of the worst.
Maybe the reason for the mixup with the testing ID was my company fault or the testing center.
But I think is really bad is that you can’t call the support and you never get any personal excuse you only get this auto generated excuse on the mail.
First of all congratulations for passing the SCJD (how was the per section score?)
Not a long time ago someone else had also a lot of difficulties with the grading of his assignment and I believe he was offered a free voucher for all the inconvenience. This is the thread I'm talking about, maybe it gives you an idea of what you can do
I took the exam now over 4 weeks ago (last thursday it was 4 weeks), but still have no result. The assignment was submitted the same day. Sun stated some weeks ago that everything is ok and now not being assessed. But here in the forum, I read often that people got their results exactly 4 weeks after their exam; just like that it is finished earlier but will be made public on this day. So do I have to become nervous? ;)
