Hi Ranchees,

I got SCJP1.4 certification in 2005. Now i am planning to write OCPJWCD5.
I have changed my full name in 2008 after my marriage.

Now how this will affect in my WCD exam? Is it possible to change my name in Sun/Oracle. If so, how?
Please help me.

Thanks in advance.

Many Thanks,
SCJP 1.4(91%), OCA(86%)

Hi Frits,
I have checked with 3 prometric centers. All are saying different procedures One prometric incharge said no need to change at all. Other said I have to contact Sun/Oracle. Other said he can change if i show the id proofs. But he will create another candidate id.
I am sooo worried
Could you please tell me how exactly you have changed the name?

Anyway I have emailed to mail id which pramod mentioned.
