Dear Ranchers,

I have a doubt about taking up part -III and submission of part-II.
when we will be able to take up part-III exam? should we need first upload part-II and then we will should takeup part-III exam?
Is there any rule of time limit between period we upload part-II and taking up of Part-III.
For example will I be able to take up Part-III exam with in 2-3 days after uploading part-II.

Can you please provide your inputs?

Thanks a lot in advance.

It is advisable to upload your assignment and take the 3rd exam within a week. That way your design is still fresh in your mind. This is what I did when I completed the exam.

It can be done in any order:
1) You can upload part 2 and appear for part 3 within a week
2) You can appear for part 3 and then upload your part 2 within a week.
3) Do both of them on the same day.

there are no restrictions but it's better to do both of them within a week.

Always remember now it's a pass or fail grade and moreover people are having contradict views but one need to have their own reasoning. What i have found that the OCP team takes almost like one week to get information about the part 3 essay exam from prometric. That's the reason why myself and others are talking about "within one week".
You can delay part 2 or part 3 if you want - but the issue is - the moment you are done with part 2 and part 3 -you will be waiting for your over all result. This wait may be painful if you do further delay in between part 2 and part 3.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
