Hello Friends,

Today , I gave my Part 3 exam , I gave all the best possible answers for 8 questions , based on my designed architecture (Which I yet to submit). I got confuse over the Mark-sheet of Part 3 , which I got just after giving part 3 , it says Test Status "Failed" .

How come mark-sheet can show status as "Failed" where still I need to submit my Part2 .

Friends , Please let me know , is it expected case ??? or did I do anything wrong while finishing part 3 exam.


I am extremely nervous on this.

Please reply.



Thanks & Regards

The result was not shown at the end for me. However, I took the exam prior to the exam being rebranded by Oracle (even though there should not be any changes according to Oracle).
What does the printed result sheet given by the prometric center say about the test outcome? Is this only displayed on the screen or the printed result sheet as well?

Hello,

I just finished my step 3/3. And I also got 0% score. I made sure in the end of the test that I had answered for the every essay questions.

I think that answers went correctly to the Oracle and they will review answers. The examination score report functioning is not good and nice. But I think my answer went to the Oracle and they will check it there.

BR,

Mika

Hi all,

today i finished part3 and send part 2 to oracle. At my score report you can read 0% and failed, too. I think it's normal.

If anyone get the result, please post. Then i know how long it takes to get the result.

So long Ralf

This thread will save me many hours of panic. Now I already know that after part 3 exam I will be receiving 0% and Failed as status. Thanks for this update. Please post reply on this thread when you get your actual results from Oracle so we know the time it takes.

with regards

Hi!

I'm just wondering, if one submits part2 before taking part3, after part3 is done at the test center, the same 0 score will be printed?

Thanks

Well i don't know the answer reason being i submitted assignment and appeared in part3 on the same day.
This is how Sun/Oracle(OCP Team) might be working.
They ask us to send the assignment at this email ID "architect-submit_US@oracle.com" with the jar file and the subject should contain the Prometric ID. So this way they can cross reference the assignment with the part 3 exam. I keep on getting regular updates from OCP team(they are very prompt in providing the updates-really good in that). I got the updates in the following order:
1) We have received the assignment within 5 minutes.
2) After 5 days, another update-we are yet to get the part 3 from prometric
3) after another 4 days, we have got the part 3 from prometric and sent your part 3 and the assignment for evaluation

So you can determine what could happen if you submit part 2 assignment and then appear in part 3. So essentially i beleive after submitting the assignment-one can appear within 8-10 days and there won't be any delay, better to appear in part 3 first because the delays are happening from prometric end. So this way there will be least impact on the delay in evaluation of both of your parts(2 and 3).

In any case, I don't think that anybody can get part 3 results, reason being:
1) Sun/Oracle(OCT Team) would like to verify that you only has done this assignment by making sure that how consistent your part 3 answers are with the submitted assignment? This can happen if OCP team verifies your submitted part 2 assignment with part 3 answers.
So one can try by submitting part 2 assignment 1.5 months in advance and then appear in part3(may be they have already evaluated the assignment)
2) Part 3 is some questions on the NFRs, defending your architecture and problem specific. Means it's not possible to judge part 3 alone.
In a nutshell part 2 and part 3 goes together, can't be evaluated without one another. So i think in any case you won't get any pass score for part 3
3) Sun/Oracle gives grades "P" or "F" so they might not feels like awarding any marks for part 3 as there is a combined grade for part 2 and part 3.
