Hi,

I did part 3 in Prometric and emailed the part 2 assignment afterwards. Now the problem is how long I can see the test record in Certmanager's history page that will indicate Oracle actually receive the
part 3 essay from Prometric. This procedure I got from http://www.coderanch.com/t/500959/java-Architect-SCEA/certification/Tips-do-expect-after-Part#2258276

But now more than one week pasts, I still can't see the part 3 result in Certmanager. are there ranches who got experience to tell me about how long the part 3 result will appear, or my understanding about the procedure is wrong.

Thanks

3 business days after Prometric uploads your part 3, somebody updates the Sun cert database, and you can see it on the internet.
Usually prometric uploads your exam at the end of the business day when you took it.

However, the Oracle Coordinator will wait for 5-6 business days after you email them the assignment, before he looks up your prometric test in their database.
Then he emails you a notice that assignment + prometric test has been forwarded to a grader; takes 4-6 weeks etc etc.

This is the happy scenario.

Thank your reply.

I took part 3 last Friday, until now it've been 6 business days, and I still can't see the part 3 result. Is it normal, or i should contact Prometric regarding my issue?

You can ask Prometric if they uploaded your part 3 to the Sun database. Call the very center you have been to. Hopefully you kept the sealed piece of paper that they gave you at the end, saying you failed with 0%

If you do nothing, the letter from Oracle coordinator might not say "we've forwarded your assignment+exam ...", but rather: "we could not find your exam!" Most likely you will receive the email from Oracle this Sunday. Not sure why the coordinator works on Sundays, (part time job?) but that is the way it is.

Thanks again. I just keep my fingers crossed hoping something's gonna turn up next week. otherwise i must contact prometric.

I believe this type of things not only happened to me. Why Sun/Oracle always has been complained about their tardiness and negligence? This really sucks for a reverent company it's supposed to be.

If you took part 1 before September 1st, it might simply be that the part 3 now shows up in the Oracle section on credentials website, and in fact it was uploaded.
