Hi Guru and Hi to ALL !

Let me please ask the question that all of us are looking for a clear answer : CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL US HOW TO DOWNLOAD THE (SCEA/OCMJEA) PART2 ASSIGNMENT IN DETAILS ?

1) Using Credit-card.
2) Using Voucher.

Forgive me if this is topic has been there before, but I've noticed that no one has given the instructions that we need to follow.
If someone please could write down the instructions for both, credit card and voucher , so this topic could be a reference for anyone in the future

Thank you ALL for your time and support !

Luay,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

While I had blogged about ordering part 2 by credit card, the procedures all changed somewhat now that Oracle is using Pearson instead of Prometric.

Dear Jeanne,

Thanks for your reply

I've been reading your blog for a while, it really helped me in passing Part1 of the exam ... but now I'm planning to download the assignment.
What should I do right now and how could someone get the assignment after the new changes ? I was planning to follow your instructions 2 days ago, but when I read about the changes I simply stopped !

Can someone please tell us the instructions we must follow in order to complete Part2 of the exam, specially if he or she downloaded the assignment recently after the new changes took place ? From Where and How ?

It would be very helpful for all CodeRanchers to have a reference for these new instructions to follow in the future.

Thank you ALL !

Luay,

I am exactly in same situation as you are!
There was a post in another thread that said:

Just confirmed with Oracle Customer Support that
> the URL to pay and download the assignment is still https://ibt1.prometric.com/oracle
> Part-3 can be taken at prometric (till 31st May) and in PearsonVUE after that.
> Part-3 can be taken only after the assignment has been submitted and graded.
> The email address given for assignment submissioin on https://ibt1.prometric.com/oracle
is correct.


Only thing to confirm looks like:
"If I am downloading the assignment from prometric now, whether the assignment should still be submitted to the email mentioned in the prometric link after 31 May?"

I have written yesterday to Oracle Customer Support to confirm this, but haven't got a reply.
Hope this helps.

But need to get sorted this soon to move things quickly before August 1 deadline

Thanks for all the replies.But still iam facing issue.
When you say First Time Registration is it at prometric site or suncert site.
I did't find anything list First Time Registration in prometric site.All i see is a new user
registration.Then i did registration there with the prometric id as metnioned there.
After that I see nothing in history page.Does it take time for retriving the history.I did't also
see any public test link.Also if i goto update profile i see something different prometric id that i have
entered.

If i goto http://www.certmanager.net/sun and i could see First Time Registration.After registyering i can
see all the information about my test.But i don't see any public test link.

get part 2 from prometric until 31st May, after that from Pearson Vue.

You need to register at this site and then you can pay by credit card.

Just for info I mailed Oracle yesterday asking about uploading the assignment and got this....seems to suggest that you can take part 3 before you submit the assignment but Pearson Vue does not allow this....


Hi William,

Thanks for contacting Oracle Certification Program.

You can continue working on your assignment and then take the Essay exam through Pearson VUE. After completing both you can email us on architect-submit_US@oracle.com and we will assist you further.

Regards,
OCP Team




Hi,
I have downloaded and nearly finished my assignment for the Architect Certification (FactoryHomes) and will need to upload it for grading in the first/second week of June. I got it from the Prometric site but understand I have to upload it to Pearson Vue however I can't see an option to do this on their website. Please advise the necessary steps.

Has anybody any clue about this Pearson message?

"Oracle Certification Program policy requires that a 1Z0-865 or 1Z0-848 exam be graded before registration for exam 1Z0-866 is allowed."

If we are submitting around Jully 1st then can we immediately apply for part3
or should we wait for grading.The question is how much time it will take for oracle to grade part2.
If it takes 2-3 weeks then we will have just one week to book and write the exam.Part3 requires
to be present on the center in person.So iam from india so should i need to book it in pearson site if i have to
take exam after may31.

Oracle do not grade parts 2 and 3 separately. They must go together. There are a huge number of posts in this forum where members have confirmed this by writing to Sun or Oracle, and they have received the reply that parts 2 & 3 go to the assessor simultaneously.

Part 3 is used to confirm that you wrote the part 2 submission. The way it works is simple: the assessor will look at an exam answer and correlate it back to the submission. Here is a fake example, but hopefully it will demonstrate the point: if you said in your exam that you used only web services in your solution while in your solution you used a queuing system to pass messages, then the assumption will be that the person that took the exam is different from the person who submitted the assignment.

Back to your first question. If you are planning on submitting your assignment around July 1st, then I would strongly recommend you take the part 3 exam as close to July 1st as possible.
