Hello, I read teh FAQ about the exam expiration period. But I only found answer for the written test.
I bought the exam about a year ago, but due my work, and lack of planning to cope with this project, I just started to work on it, and I wonder if I need to buy another one, where a will receive a new set of instructions, or I just will able to have another year to deliver the project I 've been commited to deliver.
If you downloaded your assignment after May 2009, you have a 1 year time-limit. More info about this deadline, can be found in this thread.
So I would send an email to Oracle (email addresses in the sticky post) and ask what you should do, because as far as I know nobody exceeded the 1 year time-limit, so not a lot of people on this forum can help you. Maybe you get some extra time to finish your assignment.
