I just got this email today. I sent in my assignment on the 13/12/10. They were pretty fast

The only thing is I do not know where to check my score. Like what what score I got out of 400. They say you just get a passing score but everyone on the forum that did the exam seems to know what points they got.

When i submitted my exam i had to do it through email. The reason was that when i signed up for the exam oracle was changing stuff in sun.

So i think i definitely passed. just not being able to see my score is putting me in doubt

Hi Martin,
Congratulations! You have passed the Oracle Certified Master, Java SE6 Developer certification. You are among the elite 1% of certified Java professionals who have gone on to achieve the Oracle Certified Master, Java SE6 Developer certification.

Your certificate package is being processed for shipping. Look for a certificate in the mail in approximately 4 to 6 weeks. You can publish official certification records from our certification portal at

You have received a passing score. 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.

Thank you for all your efforts with this certification, and good luck in your future endeavors with Java.

Please let us know if we may provide further assistance.

As I understood, they don't provide a score anymore since Oracle took over Sun. Just 'pass' or 'not pass'

although I can understand your bad feelings about your score..I think no one likes this new way.

If you want, can you tell us a little about your way you performed your assignment?

Hi Martin,

Since Oracle no actual scores are provided, you just get a passed or failure message. If you would have failed, you would get your score breakdown to know which parts you have to improve for a resubmission. But that's the only situation where an actual score is given. They don't even bother to give a total score anymore.

Congratulations (don't forget to upgrade your signature ;))

Kind regards,

SCJA, SCJP (1.4 | 5.0 | 6.0), SCJD
