Unable to Register for Part3

Hi,
I recently purchased part 2 assignment and was targeting to complete the OCMJEA before the August 1, 2011 deadline. I am working on the assignment right now and thought I will schedule part 3 in first week of July right away(to avoid lat minute rush). But when I was doing this in Pearson Vue's site I got this error "Oracle Certification Program policy requires that a 1Z0-865 or 1Z0-848 exam be graded before registration for exam 1Z0-866 is allowed."
1Z0-865 refers to part 2. I thought we could register for(possibly even appear for) the essay exam before submitting the actual assignment.

I am unsure on what the above error statement means. Does it mean just submission of part 2 or does it include grading as well? If it includes grading, I thought part 2 and part 3 were graded together as mentioned in Oracle's site webpage. Look at the section "Purchasing the Master Downloadable Project" and follow the link for Prometric over there webpage

Per my plan, I will be able to complete the assignment only by first week of July. If they take 4-6 weeks to grade it from then, I'll not be able to register for part 3 until August. This implies I'll not be able to meet the August 1 deadline because I've not completed part3. I see slots open for part 3 in Prometric before the end of May. Would it be wise of me to take the test from Prometric before May end and then submit the assignment in July?

Am I wrong in my assumptions?

Please help!


ThanQ,

From what I know, part II won't be graded until part III is completed, at least it was like that with Prometric.

I have the same problem. I tried to call them but no luck. Please give us an update if anybody finds any solution.

I don't think we can write the part3 first and then submit the assignment after 2-3 weeks. The essay is based on our assignment. How would we answer if we haven't finalized our design?

If that is the only choice, I would go for that. Is there anybody who did something like(sending the assignment after the part3 exam,at least 1 week gap)?

Thanks
Uma

I would prefer to take part 3 after part 2 as well but cannot afford the mandatory training. The registrations in prometric closes by this week ( or early next week) unsure of exact dates. I am desperately in need of help. If someone can offer valuable guidance, I'll greatly appreciate

I believe, candidate submits part 2, takes part 3 and then only part 2 is examined.

When I took SCJD, which involves assignment & essay exam, assignment was examined only after I took essay exam, and in essay exam I was asked questions related to assignment about my decisions implemented in assignment & justification for those decisions.

So one need to take part 3 SCEA, then only part 2 will be examined.

good luck.

Hi,

I'm also preparing my assignement, and i'm not very confortble with theses new changes, i don't know how will this be reflected in your contries, but in Morocco, i'm afraid that the test centers will not be synchronized quickly (I hope i'm wrong).

I was seeking in the pearsonvue web site, and my search lead me to a Oracle FAQ, in this section, you will see:


I purchased the Assignment from Prometric, but I haven’t returned my completed project to Oracle yet. How do I upload my Assignment?
...
You will not be eligible to register for the Essay until you have submitted your Assignment.

In the same site there is an FAQ that goes
I have completed my Assignment, but I have not submitted it to Oracle yet. I have also already completed the Essay at Prometric. How do I submit my completed Project and get my Essay recognized?


which tells me that it was possible with Prometric in the past and until May end but not after that
Ranchers.. please correct me if I am wrong

0. I have purchased the assignment CX-310-301A (1Z0-865) from the Prometric website with a valid credit card (NOT a voucher) and I haven't finished it yet.

How I send it to Pearson without a voucher number?

1. I have created a Pearson web account but I cannot see exam 310-062 (1Z0-866) to send my assignment.

2. The assignment clearly stated that

"You must complete your essay exam (part III) at Prometric PRIOR to sending us your assignment. Your assignment will NOT be graded without your having completed the essay exam (310-062)".

2. I have cancelled the essay exam 310-062 (1Z0-866) with Prometric following Oracle's suggestions and tried to schedule it with Pearson but I get this message from Pearson's website:

"Oracle Certificacion Program policy requieres that a 1Z0-865 exam be graded before registration for exam 1Z0-866 is allowed".

How can the assignment be graded (1Z0-865) WITHOUT having completed the essay examn (1Z0-866)?

3. Does anybody at Oracle have even a clue about all of this matter? Do they care about it?

Very sad situation. I tried to call Oracle customer Support and asked them question.

I have downloaded my assignment from Prometric and Oracle policy has changed, how should I submit the assignment with Pearson?

Cust Rep asked me to get in touch with Pearson as he had no clue.

Hi All,

Called prometric the only thing they can tell is complete both assignment and essay before May 31st. Nobody knows about the new policy of 'you can register for part 3 only after part2 grading' will be effective . If they can give a waiver till August 1st. then we are good or we just need to submit part2 before registering part3.

Hopefully Oracle will correct it.

The problem is if you go by the policy of part 3 submission after part 2 grading, I highly doubt if anyone can do that before August 1. Provided, Oracle stands by this policy and that you are just starting part2 like me. This would mean that your part 2 is submitted and you cannot take part 3 because then you will have to undergo the mandatory training

As per my understanding, it's possible to complete part 2 (send assignment to Oracle by email if it's ready) and take part 3 with Prometric before May 31st. Is it 100% correct understanding? If yes, I would like to go ahead and make an appointment with Prometric right away for part 3 and send assignment to Oracle directly (by email) by end of this month.

Please confirm.

If you submit both parts 2& 3 before May then no problem. The big question that we have unanswered is doing part3 with Prometric and then Part 2 with Pearson Vue say a month later

Hi folks,

I had just found this FAQ, which I believe has the answer for most of our questions. My specific case is this one:

I purchased the Assignment from Prometric, but I haven’t returned my completed project to Oracle yet. How do I upload my Assignment?

1. Contact suncert_ww@oracle.com to exchange your voucher(s) for voucher(s) that can be applied to the Assignment at Pearson VUE
2. If you do not already have a Pearson VUE web account, create one at pearsonvue.com/oracle; make sure to use your Oracle Testing ID (previously Prometric ID) to set up your Pearson VUE web account.
3. Access the Assignment online at http://www.pearsonvue.com/oracle by selecting one of the below, by test number, from the available Assignments
4. Using your voucher to access one of these test numbers will place you in a special form of the Assignment, where you can upload your completed work.
5. You will not be eligible to register for the Essay until you have submitted your Assignment.
6. After completing your Assignment, you will be able to schedule and take the proctored Essay exam at a PearsonVue Testing Center.
7. When the grading is complete, you will be notified by email and your result will be available at certview.oracle.com. This process usually takes 3-4 weeks from the completion of your Essay.
8. Detailed feedback for a Failed score can be found at http://www.pearsonvue.com/oracle, where you will be able to view your Score Report and see the Assessor's evaluation for each section.


Test Number Name

1Z0-848 Java Enterprise Edition 5 Enterprise Architect Certified Master Assignment (T1)

1Z0-844 Java Standard Edition 6 Developer Certified Master Assignment (T1)


I had just sent them an email requesting the "voucher exchange", hope they reply me soon with good news.

Wellington

Hi friends,

I am with the same issue. I went to the pearsonvue site to schedule the scea III essay before send the asignment and I received the same message: "Oracle Certification Program policy requires that a 1Z0-865 or 1Z0-848 exam be graded before registration for exam 1Z0-866 is allowed". Well, but how can we schedule to essay wich is prerequisite for have the step two graded without have the step two graded. It´s a joke?? I can´t believe. Any one had solved this question?

As the per the new rule, you must to submit the assignment first before scheduling the essay exam. I believe there is a difference between submitting/uploading and grading.

So, Oracle will not grade it until they have both the assignment and essay with them.

But to register for the essay, the assignment must be submitted first. And once you submit the assignment you can right away register for the essay and can take on the same day.

Also, please check the FAQs on the oracle site before submiting an assignment, if you have purchased the assignment from PRometric and trying to upload as in that case the exam code is 1Z0-848.

Manish, you are right, I tried to register today before submitting and it was showing up this message. But my biggest doubt is, why it is mentioned as "graded"?
Oracle Certification Program policy requires that a 1Z0-865 or 1Z0-848 exam be graded before registration for exam 1Z0-866 is allowed.


Also, is part-3 exam an online exam or I have to visit the center to write it?

It is explicitly stated on the Oracle website. This is considered a proctored application exam where "Proctored exams are considered high-stakes exams and are therefore only delivered with a proctor. All exams, except Oracle Database OCM exams, are offered at Pearson VUE testing centers and some are offered at Oracle University training locations in some regions."

Yes, I know - I took part 3 last week.
1.You have to first 'submit' the assignment - without that you cannot register for Part 3.
2.As soon as you upload the assignment, you will be able to register & schedule for part 3 - exam will NOT be graded until you finish part 3 (yah, that message is wrongly worded - they should correct it)
3. You have to visit a center, show your ID card and take this exam like any other - at the end of the exam a marksheet will be generated which shows the status as 'Pending'.
Then, we have to wait for the grading.

Dear All,

I enrolled in SCEA Part2 using Prometric and completed and ready to submit the assignment. I registered in Pearson VUE using the Testing Id but yet to get the
user name and password.

Can anyone please let me know how I should submit the Part2 - whether sending by email to architect-submit_US@oracle.com with the assignment submission
or wait to get the user name and password for Pearson and then upload the assignment. I don't have any voucher since I paid by credit card.
Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

If you are submitting the assignment via Pearson VUE, then you have to buy the exam from Pearson VUE( If you have bought it via Prometric, then I guess you can still use the same details to convert into Pearson's coupon ). Once you have registered for Part 2, then you can download the assignment and after completing, open up the same exam and it will prompt you to upload the assignment. Once your upload is done, the exam will be marked as complete and you can register for Part 3 immediately.

Thank you Mahesh for your reply. I don't know what details to provide to get the coupon and also how will I get the same assignment that I worked (using prometric) from Pearson as well.

Anyways I have contacted suncert_ww@oracle.com and got the automated reply back saying it may take 5 days to the response from them.

In the meantime, I got the email confirmation from Pearson and account is enabled.

Now I'm really confused. So I have passed part 1, I have downloaded part II from Prometric, now I want to register for part 3. How do I do that, cannot register on the Pearson VUE website as it says that I have not completed the required parts. Where do I upload my assignment? Should I just send it by email and wait till my status changes on Person VUE website? Shall I upload it on the Person VUE webiste? How? Is the end of July still a valid date to pass scea without additional training? Please help.

In order to register for part III you have to upload your assignment. After receiving the voucher number you can follow below steps to upload the assignment:

"
1. Go to www.pearsonvue.com/oracle.
2. Click on Schedule A Test
3. Select "Master Assignments" under "What type of exam are you planning to take?" section
4. Login with your Pearson Vue user name and Password (Create a Pearson VUE web account at pearsonvue.com/oracle if you do not already have one.)
5. Access the assignment online at pearsonvue.com/oracle, using test number 1Z0-848 for the Architect assignment and 1Z0-844 for the Developer assignment.
6. Using your voucher code to access one of these tests will place you into a special form of the assignment where you can upload your completed work.
"

Just to clarify, what voucher are you talking about? I have voucher designated for part III, I have already paid and used voucher for part II with prometric when I downloaded my assignment. Does it mean that If I use my newest voucher to upload my assignment I won't be able to use it to register for part III? So at the end I will have to use 4 vouchers, one for part 1 (prometric), one to download my assignment (prometric), one to upload my assignment (person) and one for part 3 (pearons), I want to use 3 vouchers only . I still don't quite get it.

Hi Krzysztof,

You have to contact OCP Team (suncert_ww@oracle.com) and request for voucher replacement (the one that you used to download your assignment). Once they replace it you will be able to upload your assignment.

Ok Krzysztof, I did as you said and now I can only wait, thanks for your help. Do you know anything about the deadline date (it was last day of July but I think I've read somewhere that it was extended - but I can be wrong).

As for the deadline it was extended to 1st of October, more info on OCP blog: http://blogs.oracle.com/certification/entry/0588
