Hi Friends,
Today accidentally when I checked my pearsonvue account I found my part 2 result.
Quite surprised when it was uploaded as I never received any notification.

I failed by 4 marks .
I have achieved minimum passing marks in all sections except:Essay.


In essay I achieved only 14/24 although the minimum required is 17.
Since this is the only section in which I have not received minimum marks hence I would like to re-apperar only for this section(essay)

I am not sure how shoud I be re-appearing for the essay exam to score an extra 4 points for me to pass.

Please advice.

Regards

If I am you, I would start preparing on the essay exam and wait for couple of more days until I receive a confirmation mail from Oracle. I think the grace time of one month (If you have submitted before 27th Aug) will start only after you receive the official mail.

Thanks Usman for the reply.
But I cannot find any exam link in pearsonvuw for resubmitting essay.

Do you have any idea about it?

Thanks

I am not sure. The following link gives the way to upload an assignment but yours is re-appearing for essay exam. You have to wait for oracle to come back to you. Moreover in the link I have provided, it says "Duration: 30 days from notification that first submission was failed. Resubmission will not be accepted more than 30 days after notification of failed status." Hence I think you may have to really wait for the notification from Oracle. Again, this is my suggestion but someone in this forum may have some more ideas.

Ash, have you seen in Details page of the assignment any further comment? Maybe there you find what could has gone wrong and, please, let us informed. And I would appreciate if you tell us more about your essay, in generic way in order to avoid commenting solutions.

Thanks

Hi Ashok,

I got the passed mail couple of days back and its clearly written that "Your essay does not get scored and will retain a grade of “Taken”", was wondering how they gave you a failed score?

Hi Chandan,
The PDF test report for part 2 has a section of marks breakup of each sections
"Questions" which I believe is actually "Essay" has been graded as 14/24.

The min passing marks for Questions (Essay) is 17 but I have received only 14 which means that I have to do that once again.

I am not sure if that means that I have appear for the whole test once again.

Hello Friends,

I received a reply from Oracle and they say that i dont have to re-appear the essay and just resubmit the assignment.

However I am still not sure how will I be able to achieve the minimum marks in essay.

I know failing in essay is an un-usual case and unfortunately I am a part of that case.

I am 4 marks short of the passing and hopefully will be able to achieve that with the re-submission.
But still not sure how will Oracle grade me for essay again as I have received 14/24 which is 3 less than minimum (17).


Can anyone shed some light on this?

Ashok,
Is your overall score < 114 (or is it equal to 110 to be precise) ?

Since 114 is the minimum passing score, Oracle might have asked you to resubmit the assignment which is the only means perhaps to improve the total score?
Though I am also still waiting for my result, this is the first thought that came up in my mind.

Hi Nilesh,
Very kind of you for your reply.
My score is 110.

I am just worried that after I make the submission and able to make it 114+ then I shoud be not be told that although I have 114+ but I have still failed in essay and hence the status is failed.
If that is the probable case then I wont be interested in going further.
Have no plans to shell more money now.

What do you feel about this Nilesh?

I think you can again contact Oracle to confirm the doubt in your mind about 114+ score after re-submission.
Yes it's really dis-heartening for making us to wait for more than 3-4 months and again dealt with such scenarios

Yes I have already asked that.
The sad part is now they are taking almost a week to reply back and time flies in the mean time.

Thanks Nilesh for your advice.

I have sent a mail to OCP Team , I got a response " Please note that your essay will not be graded again and you do not need to retake the essay exam. You can fix the assessors comments and submit the assignment resubmission.
"
But if part 3 not cleared then over all status will fail ?

Hi Sanjay
TThanks for updating the post.
Even I got a similar message where it says that s=essay will not be graded again.

I was told that if I get 114+ then I will be graded as pass.

But even I am not sure what are they trying to say when I have in essay less than minimum.

Regards

I am a part of that case too.

Question:16/24
Depolyment Diagram:12/24

I also mail to OCP Team,and got reply:

We have checked your result and it is accurate.Kindly note if a person fails any of the required sections Component, Class, Deployment or Question, then it is an automatic failure regardless of the final score. The minimum passing score for Deployment is 17 and you have scored 12.

You can purchase the assignment resubmission and then upload the revised assignment. You do not require to retake the essay exam while resubmitting the assignment.


I really don't undestand what they trying to say. maybe after resubmit assignment then I get chance to retake the essay?

Do not worry,

I had 14/24 for essay. They asked me to resubmit assignment - I did and pass with 131 points. I already get my success kit with certificate and architect id card.
