Hi everyone,
I do not know what to do with my OCMJEA,
I have submitted my essay in the October. I have sent several emails to and they had answered to me, with a content of each email like:
We are sorry, but let us one-two weeks more for grading your exam.
Just as I said, today is March 12-th !
I am not sure how long I will be polite with them, and whan would be the content of the next mail if I send them, but I am enormously disappointed with Oracle...
Did any one of You have similar problems with 'them'?

Ask them what the e-mail address is for their complaints department

I hope you are aware about the mandatory training requirement from Oct 01,2011. If you have submitted your essay after this date then that could be one of the reasons why you are not getting positive reply from Oracle. Check in the certview about pending steps if any. Also check OCMJEA Path. If you have not completed any of the step then you might not get the expected reply from Oracle. Hope this helps.

Hi, this is my case.
I have passed part I at December 2010, and then I bought voucher for part II. I took part two (an assignment) at October 2011, and right after it, I took part III (essay), in October too, and from them I am waiting a result.
As much as I understand, completion of the Course Submission Form, should be taken, AFTER they grade my essay/assignment. It cannot be before, because, what if I failed? Nowhere is written that grading will occurs after taking course submission form.
So I need to be graded first, in order to gain any course, but still I do not receive a response from them, but only miserable email, to wait one-two weeks more. If there is any problem regarding a course, they should said:"Hey, you, take a course, and then you will be graded".
I agree. Here's the link:
