Those of you who heard their part2-3 grading results recently, can you share the timelines please? How long did it take to grade.

Cheers.

Thanks!

Thank You Rajan,

But this email address seems to make an Autoreply with some predefined content. The reply mail I have got is as follows. Is this similar to what you have got ?

Thank you for contacting the Sun Certification Program.

With the change from Prometric to Pearson VUE, we expect no disruption in availability of testing. However candidates should be aware of a system issue that may affect the shipment of your certificate and the timing of your certification. Transition of records to Oracle's certification database and maintenance to the database during the transition period may delay the shipment of your printed certificate up to two or three weeks. If your certification success kit is delayed by more than 2-3 weeks, please contact us at suncert_ww@oracle.com for assistance.

HELPFUL INFO

You may find the answer to your question on the Certification Website <someurl> .

Please allow up to 5 business days for a reply. Please note that sending multiple emails will cause more email for us to filter through and may slow down our response time.

Regards,
OCP Team

hi!
When I finished my test, they wrote my exam will have status "pending", but right now my part 3 has status "taken" since few days, and part II has disappeared from the list. Is it ok?

Finally, I got the magic email today morning....


Hi xxxxx,

Congratulations! You have passed the Oracle Certified Master, Java EE 5 Enterprise Architect certification. You are among the elite 1% of certified Java professionals who have gone on to achieve the Java Enterprise Architect certification.

You have received a passing score. Passing grades do not receive a score, just the pass. A failing grade will receive section level scoring so that a candidate may isolate the area of failure and resubmit their assignment. Numeric scores are only provided on failures.

We are in process of migrating SUN exams to Pearson Vue and hence there is a delay in processing shipments. We kindly request you to allow 6-8 weeks to receive your certification success kit.

Thank you for all your efforts with this certification, and good luck in your future endeavors with Java.

Please let us know if we may provide further assistance.

Regards,
OCP Team

Though there might be delay due to huge rush...it's worth a wait for a certification like SCEA5

Looks like the grading timeline has been again increased, I have been waiting for 11.5 weeks now and when checked with Oracle they are saying it will take additional 3-4 weeks for grading...so totally around 15 weeks to receive the grading....hopefully I don't forget the assignment I did :-)...please share if someone is also waiting for more than 11 weeks now....

Got email from Oracle regarding delay.... I guess it may take more time....

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

Due to high volumes and technical resource constraints, the delay in getting assignments graded has been extended. We sincerely apologize for this delay.

We understand that for some candidates, the delay has been excessive. Please know that we are working diligently to get these assignments graded and get your results back to you as quickly as possible. We realize that there is concern about the upcoming training requirement for the Java Enterprise Architect and Java Developer certifications and how it will affect candidates who have already submitted assignments but have not yet received their scores. Will these candidates be required to complete training? The answer is no in most cases. Please review the scenarios below to find out if you will be required to complete training. If you have any additional questions, please contact suncert_ww@oracle.com.

If you are notified of a passing score on your assignment and essay after September 30, 2011, you will receive your certification without being required to complete training if the conditions below have been met:

submitted your assignment and completed your essay by September 30, 2011
passed the Java EE 5 Enterprise Architect Certified Master Exam by September 30, 2011 (for OCMJEA candidates only)

**Candidates who do not submit all requirements on or before September 30, 2011 will be required to complete training in order to become certified.

If you are notified of a failing score on your assignment and essay after September 30, 2011, you will have the opportunity to receive your certification without being required to complete training if the conditions below have been met:

submitted your assignment and completed your essay by August 27, 2011
passed the Java EE 5 Enterprise Architect Certified Master Exam by September 30, 2011 (for OCMJEA candidates only)
resubmit the assignment within 30 days of receiving your failing score
pass the 2nd attempt


**Candidates who did not submit both assignment and essay by August 27, 2011 will not be considered for this exception. This policy was outlined in the announcement posted on the Oracle Certification website.”

Regards,
Oracle Certification Program

This seems to happen to everyone who completed the part2 and part3 recently.

I wouldn't be surprised that an extraordinary volume of the exam takers submitting their assignment and took the essay exams. I will wait peacefully until the day my exam result comes out. At least, I completed my assignment and essay and do not need to worry about them.

Maybe they have different people for different assignments, and maybe some are more overloaded than other..
