Booking slot for part 3 through Pearson before submitting assignment

Hi All,

I have cleared the Part 1 of architect certification and I downloaded the assignment for part 2 as well.

Currently am working on the assignments and planning to upload around 20 -25th of september and take the final part 3 before 30th of september to ensure I complete everything before 30th (Obviously to get away with the mandatory training course from Oct 1st).

But am quite skeptical about the slots as I'm afraid many people would rush in at the last minute to take up various exams and that too during the last 10 days.
So if i wait for booking the slot for part 3 till I upload my assignments I might possibly not getting a slot in the last week.

Is it possible to book a slot upfront before uploading the assignment and ensure before taking up the final part after i uploaded ?

For instance if i book now itself a slot for 27th of sep for my last part 3 exam and submit the assignment on 26th, is it allowed ?

Because I see in the Oracle site for the part 3 description they mentioned as
"Your assignment must be submitted before you can register for the essay."

But i tried to book a slot through pearson site it dint block me anywhere like checking the part 2 status or something.

If i do so will be in trouble at later time or getting the certification result later?

Please clarify.

If you try to book the essay exam (part III) before you upload the assignment, the Person system will block you at the end of the booking process saying that you have to complete part II before registering for part III.

Hi Krzysztof Grajek,

Thanks for the reply, I indeed tried to book a slot.

I completed till the last step, selected course, selected slot & time and even provided credit card details.
But till then Pearson site dint block me anywhere.
I stopped before the last submit as am not sure am allowed to do so or not. I don't want to end up after a successful registration and face any issues at later point of time...

So it is only checking when we submit after even we provided the credit card details etc ?

I was trying to do the same about a month ago but with a 'voucher' option. At the end of the process it shows the error message, there are many posts regarding this on java ranch as I recall. You could register for part 3 before taking part 2 with Prometric, but with Person (unless something changed within last month) you cannot do that.
