This morning (May 21) I received an email from Oracle ( to say that I passed the SCJD:

"We have received notification that you have passed your SCJD assignment. Your Sun Certified Java Developer (SCJD) certification has been processed and will be mailed soon. Please allow approximately 4-6 weeks for delivery.

OCP Team"

For others who are waiting and might be frustrated, as I was, here is some info:

I took the essay exam on Feb 12, after I had submitted my assignment, so it took > 3 months to get a result.

The emails from which I got responses were:
suncert_ww []
ocpexam_ww []

Never any response (about the grading) from

No score info so far. shows only my SCJP test (and score), nothing yet about SCJD.

The certification database site does show the SCJD cert:
Event Date/Time: May 21, 2010
Description: The status for program Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform changed to Manually Certified on Feb 14, 2010.

In any case, I learned a lot from the assignment, and I certainly recommend it despite the unreasonable wait at the end.

Thanks to many folks on this forum for all of the useful and encouraging info :-)

I passed in Febraury too and after a lot of chasing regarding what score I got, they've now replied as follows :-

You have received a passing score, which shows up in certmanager as a 0 score with P grade. The SCJD exam is Pass/Fail. Passing grades do not receive a score, just the pass.

A failing grade will receive section level scoring so that a candidate may isolate the area of failure and resubmit their assignment. Numeric scores are only provided on failures.

Hope this helps
