Hi,
I am waiting for result since last 4 months. I have submitted my assignment on 13th June and took exam on 18th June. My assignment was sweet Factory Home
Is anybody waiting for more than 4 months.

With regards,
S.K.Jha

Hi,

I'm in the same boat - submitted assignment on 9th of June (Dreamcar) and took the Essay on 13th of June - 17 weeks of regular mailbox checking.

I also had the Big Smokes assignment. Could it be that all delayed results are from the Big Smokes assignment?

I submitted my essay on 30th June. My assignment was DreamCar. I had also written to Oracle 2 weeks ago, got a response saying that I should wait for another 2-3 weeks.

I also had that transition voucher. Actually, I did short investigation on this forum and all users reported that they submitted their assignments and took essay exam in June, are waiting (at least 9 people I found)

This is totally absurd and very unprofessional of Oracle. They replied to me saying - " ...there is some hitch in the grading system..." when I pointed out that some are getting results in a few days while others have been waiting for months !! But I don't think they are doing anything to fix this. I have been waiting for more than 8 weeks now after submitting FH.

Hi All,

Me too submitted my assignment (FH) on 15th july and still waiting...
Got all sorts of reply from OCP team.. "wait for 1-2 weeks", "wait for 2-3 weeks", "there is glitch in grading system", " we apologize".... etc....

I also used transition voucher to submitted mine....

From this thread its very clear that, whoever used "TRANSITION VOUCHER" (in june and july) suffering....
Oracle didnt handle this transition properly... they nearly lost our assignments and struggling to find ways to come out....

other than that there is no point in delaying the result which hardly takes 2 weeks to assess an assignmet....
my respect to oracle keep on vanishing......

Agree, it seems that the "transition voucher" is the problem...

Hello,

I'm in the same situation, I appeared for the essay part on June 17th, I had the Dreamcar assignment and I uploaded it to Pearson using a transition voucher received from Oracle. After a couple of weeks, seeing that most of the people receive an email announcing that their assignment is sent for grading I sent an email to Oracle asking them if they have all three parts of my exam and when it is going to be sent for grading. They answered me that everything is ok and that I should just wait for their result email. There have passed more then 16 weeks since then and I'm still waiting. I'm very disappointed by the way they are handling this situation, at least they could have sent an email every 4 weeks informing me about the status instead of all the automatic answers to my emails and the SR responses that can never be accessed.

I too had the transition voucher. I uploaded the assignment on 25th August and appeared for Essay on 27th August.
Looking at this thread, it seems I should not expect any result for 2 more months atleast.

It seems that Java Developer Certification aspirants have exactly the same issue - who is uploaded their assignments in June / July (I guess, they also had transition voucher) those are still waiting ...

If you guys mean "transition voucher" as assignment purchased through Prometric and uploaded the assignment through Pearson after requesting a voucher from Oracle, then your assumptions may be wrong. Because, I purchased the assignment in mid of May from Prometric and uploaded the assignment in Pearson on 20th of July after requesting voucher from Oracle. I got the results two weeks back. My assignment was Bigsmokes.

"OCMJEA (SCEA) in grading" is nice !

Does this anyway imply that people who have completed after Prometric using pearson are going to get their results after the prometric backlog completes?

I got my Big Smokes assignment being evaluated within 3.5 weeks. One of my friend he submitted his assignment on 30th Sep- got evaluated within 8 days.His was a different one-some trading system.

I had Big Smoke Cigar Assignment and was graded/evualuated in 2 weeks time. Acutally, I am yet to get the 1% email from Oracle, however I was checking the pearsonvue site on 4th of Oct, and the score report said "PASS". Then I verified in Oracle Cert View site as well on the same day(4th), and I could see my certification details, so I was convinced I Passed!!!
In CertView site, the certification creation date was 1st Oct.
Just as an FYI, I uploaded my assignment on 16th Sep and did my Essay on 17th Sep.

Then on 6th Oct, I got the below email from ITS Support.

From: "ITS Support" <support@testsys.com>
Date: October 6, 2011 5:02:43 PM EDT
To: "SUN Exam Participant" <My Gmail Id>
Subject: SUN - Score Report Available

Good news! You have a test score entered at http://www.pearsonvue.com/oracle for an Oracle Master Certification exam. Please follow the link to your account on the Pearson VUE system to view your test score. Please be sure to review the score via your submitted assignment. (Your essay does not get scored and will retain a grade of “Taken”.) Please allow up to 72 hours for your assignment grade to display in CertView.Oracle.com.

Hope this provides some pointers.

What I would think on this is, probably looking at the volume of submissions happened in the last two months, especially last month, oracle would have temporarily recruited few folks(may be consultants), to handle/manage/expedite the evaluvation. Apparently, folks who submitted the assignment in the month of Sep got assigned to evaluvation to new recruits and (assume)they were dedicated for this evaluvation with target to close everyday. Those assignments which were submitted two or more months earlier may be need to be re-assigned/distributed with load-balancing(!!!) mechanism...
This is just my guess/thought....

Might be, but my case is a bit different: I did all three parts directly through Pearson Vue, no Prometric.
Submitted the essay on June 22, waiting since.

So, most likely it works as LIFO instead of queue - who submitted later, will get results faster.

I launched a thread to keep track of those who are currently waiting for the result.
http://www.coderanch.com/t/554239/java-Architect-SCEA/certification/many-people-currently-waiting-result

Although a little bit disappointed at the long waiting for the result, I still have confidence to pass the exam. It is just the long waiting makes this a little bit pain in the bottom.

Hi,

when I log into http://pearsonvue.com/oracle and look at the exam history I have two appointments:

When I click on the score report for the online exam I get this PDF:
Your assignment upload was successful. The next step is to take the essay exam. Please go
to www.pearsonvue.com/oracle to register. If this is a resubmission of a previous failed
assignment, your original essay will be used with your resubmitted assignment. You will not
retake the essay.

My questions are (and I *don't* want a generic answer this time!!):

1. Have you received my essay exam? I can see it in the exam history, but the content of the score report for the online exam indicates I haven't done it yet. So, have you received it?
2. I used a transition voucher, and according to the Java Ranch forum a lot of other people have had delay after delay when using a transition voucher. Are there any problems related to people using transition vouchers?
3. What is my position in the backlog of assignments?

Regards,
Viggo Navarsete


and got this response the day after:
Hi Viggo,

We apologize for all the inconvenience caused.

Hi Viggo,

I am also in same position.... but this time i didnt send any mail to OCP team....

Because i know even i mentioned/highlighted/bold/italics/whatever that i dont want any generic reply, they will be continuing "sending generic replies and asking to wait, wait and wait....."

Its very simple now, OCP team can do anything other than sending generic replies to us on one side and ask the assessor to assess our assignments soon on the other side......

Oracle Rules.......

Unbelievable! I got it!

Just went to my Pearson VUE account, checked score report and yes! I got Pass and 144/160 points

I didin't receive email from Oracle yet and in CertView I don't have logo for OCMJEA, but I'm sure I will have it in day or two.

I've submitted my assignment on 9th of June (Dreamcar) and taken essay on 13th of June - more then 18 week of waiting! And the most concern was that I will fail (deployment diagram section seems to be the weakest part for many aspirants) and after that I will need to wait same 4 months again. But luckily no.

I'm so happy! And I would like to thank this forum for all those answers I've found and for all those news I got from you guys

And it's a party time now!
