'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...'
Gist of my view of the exam:
Design does not need to be excellent, but call out why you designed so. The exam is more a thought process than a final output.
I have submitted my essay on 11th of September and sit the exam on 15th of September. Yesterday I received the email that I have passed. First, I was a little bit suspicious because my status on pearsonvue.com/oracle is still "taken" and there is no sign that the exam is graded, but I can see the exam on CertView site. It would mean that the grading process took them only 11 days. What do you think?
Wow! Congratulations Tamal and Maciej !
Does that mean the grading process is a lucky draw? There does not seem to be any sequence or order in which people are getting graded !
For some its taking upto 15 weeks and for some not even 15 days !
Just curious, where did you take your essay exams?
Maybe the location of exam matters ! I dunno , I am just guessing !
I took my essay exam on Sept 17th and waiting.The certview status just says 'Taken'
