Finally after 15 weeks of waiting, I received a update in my Pearson Vue account page that I failed (no email yet) in part 2 . I got the following marks in component diagram 10/30 and 10/10 in UML compliance in the component diagram. But in the comment section it says missing component diagram. It doesn't say which section i need to rewrite but says in general if this is a first try, I can resubmit within 30 days. Then, i went back and check my deliverable and found that I named the links as Collaboration diagram and NOT component diagram but inside the diagram they were Component diagram. Now,
1) Was because of the wrong name, they didn't find my component diagram? Can i request them to check the collaboration links explain in an email?
2) If the component diagram is missing, then why still i got 10+10(UML compliance) = 20 marks in that section? I followed CADE book.
3) Since I haven't got any email yet, will I be informed about what section i need to retake or submit the whole project? Also, there was a note that I don't need to take the essay. And lastly, I missed some marks in Class diagram (i got 35/40). Can i add the missing BDM information even though i passed that section? Will that section (class) diagram be evaluated again?
It is sad to know your result, neverthless, I think, you can try that, sending an email to them, and see if it helps. I would suggest, you could mention not to count it as submission, just to be safe.
BTW, how much is your total, and how much did you get in deployment diagram, because they too decide your re-submission parameters...

Thanks Ganesh. My total is 102 and deployment diagram its 17. Do i have to resubmit the deployment diagram section too? Today,I got an email for the failure result. I will reply as you advised for the missing component diagram comment.
And i guess when we resubmit, we update the old submission with fixing the comments and upload it right?

I dont think, you will need to submit the deployment diagram again, as you just cleared right 17/24, is the minimum, I think, it is one area, where everybody struggle to score well to take advantage.
Your class diagram looks fine 35/40. Rest of the sections you may have to focus, as you need minimum of 12 more marks.
If you share little more detail on other sections of your score, probably others in forum too can suggest the areas to focus for re-submission.
I dont have much information on what all needs to be submitted for re-submission.

I sent an email to the OCP team and i got a response back saying that my component diagram was not missing but was wrong because of splitting into 4 digrams for each use case. I need to resubmit the component diagram as a signle diagram. Now, i am not sure what would be much different putting all in a single diagram and Class diagram, sequence and deployement disgram kind of gives the whole picture. My current component diagram is more or less a version of the class diagram.
Could anybody help me if the following is a correct way? Should i make it a bigger more generalized cohesive component and put specialized smaller (class level) component inside the bigger one and use ports and interfaces connecting all these bigger component? Is it legal to put smaller component into a bigger one? Should i need to show different tiers like web, presentation, integration etc , and where these component falls into, just like Cade book?
A component diagram should be at a high level than a class diagram. For example, suppose you have three classes to handle the UI. That is one layer and shows up as such on a component diagram. (I think the Cade/Sheil component diagram is entirely too detailed. But if you put that level of detail, add the grouping rectangles they did so show the layers that belong in a component diagram.
Thanks Jeanne. Since there is 40 marks for component diagram, i will go for more details as long as the diagram is right and legal. I have still some doubts on interfaces and ports displayed in the component diagram. Cade/Sheil book don't show them. What do you think about them, should i need to show them? To be able to add interfaces in component diagram, do i need to have them in Class diagram? I used servicelocator and Context injection and Value List H etc, they are all traditional design pattern and not real interfaces...
