Hi, just need a little bit of experience sharing

I took the my essay on May 6 and sent the assignment on the same day

After waiting one week permanently checking the status here

https://i7lp.integral7.com/durango/do/login?ownername=sun&channel=sun&basechannel=prometric

I haven't found any traces of the second and third part of SCEA neither in Certificate Requests - In process nor in history or elsewhere.
I send the question to the architect-submit_US@oracle.com and asked about that

They sent me this

Please note that your assignment and essay exam have been sent to our assessors for grading. The scoring process may take up to 6-8 weeks depending on submission volume.
Once your assignment score is returned, we will contact you with the results. Please also note that you will not be able to view the status of the coring on your CertManager profile.
Your Certification status will be updated after you pass the assignment.

---------------

I've read the opposite opinion here that everything should be displayed in the CertManager.
I don't want to loose time and then get respond after 2 months that they indeed haven't received essay from Prometric and I should call there
Did somebody have such situation?
How long does it really take to grade the exam? I read here about 5-7 days and that Oracle optimizes Sun's processes well.

Thanks

Vadym

That must be the fastest it was every done! It normally takes a number of weeks. And volume is heavier now due to the August deadline so I expect things take longer.

It takes around 3-4 weeks at least depending on the load on the evaluators as well as volume of the assignment.

It's now my week 7, after taking part 3 and sending the essay on May 6.
I've read here, that there are a lot of people waiting so long and even longer.
Really disappointing to let people wait so long

I think that 6-8 weeks is the time it takes from when it has been sent for grading so you need to find out what date it was sent.

When I did my part 3 it seemed that they couldn't find it and I had to send a copy of the exam score report to them so they could locate it, parts 2 and 3 were sent for grading the next day.

In cert view I can see part 1 only, there is no mention of the other 2 parts but I wasn't expecting to see them there until after the grading process.

I asked them one week after sending the essay if they've got everything from Prometric, and they said, that it's the case and they sent it for grading
