Beta results evaluation takes 4..6 weeks.

Beta was closed on April 13th.

April 13th + 4 weeks = Saturday, May 11, 2013

April 13th + 6 weeks = Saturday, May 25, 2013

Is 1Z1-807 still in Beta mode?

As Oracle sent me invitation email to take this Beta-Test (and buy the voucher) , the wrote that the results would be available after approx. 11 weeks.
I don't have any experiences how much did it take for the past versions and similar exams, probably someone can share some.

I saw announcements that beta results will be published 11 weeks later after beta closed.

Got mine .
Barely passed .
I won't go any further since I am already doing architect work and it is really tricky if you ask me to answer the questions.
It is true I did not prepare long enough .. just 2 weeks after work but still .. I wish I could be more confident when answering the questions.

I got 70% instead of needed 71%. It's really disappointed because it was the multiple choice exam (my 6 for Java) with by far the most ambiguous questions. I had to reread them multiple times and didn't get time to review. They also put the exam live with 71% passing score, but with 80 questions (11% less as for beta exam) for the SAME 150 minutes. I don't find it fair. We had 90 questions in 150 minutes, many hard-to-understand questions (many people wrote this), which are hopefully now rewritten well. The last, but not least, they have 57% for the multiple choice questions for Java EE 5 Architect certification (http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=5001&get_params=p_exam_id:1Z0-864&p_org_id=&lang=), and for upgrade 53% (http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=5001&get_params=p_exam_id:1Z0-868&p_org_id=&lang=) I don't see any reason to make it 71% (14-18% more), especially for the beta testers with all these disadvantages they had. I thought it would be maximal 65%. It's much easier to pass the Java EE 5 Architect certification, comparing to 6-th version , considering the passing score
Your opinions?

Anyway, I will try again in some months in order to upgrade my Java EE 5 certification. I didn't prepare too much last time and think that 70% is a very good result for that, so I hope to answer correctly one question more next time

Congrats to all who passed!

"OCP Exam Passing Scores
Oracle routinely publishes new versions of Oracle Certification exams, and the passing score across versions may differ. The passing score for each exam is set independently to maintain a consistent standard across versions. For example, to maintain a consistent standard for success, a new version of an exam which contains harder questions than the prior version will be assigned a somewhat lower required passing score. For this reason, passing scores may vary between different exams in your certification track, and between later and earlier versions of the same exam."

That means, that 57% for(1Z0-864) for the exam and 53% for (1Z0-868) for the upgrade had much more difficult questions comparing to the 1Z1-807. I don't understand that. To me, 1Z1-807 was far more difficult: ambiguous questions, antipattern questions (those antipatterns are only mentioned in Bruce Tate and some other books, they don't have the standard name on my opinion ). It's not consequent, how Oracle calculated the passing score.

But, of course, it's only my opinion, people who passed, would probably say, that it was ok

I had not studied for this Beta Exam. unfortunately i got 65% instead of 71%. Maybe i will try in the future, but now "IT Certifications", it not in my priorities. Congratulations for who passed!
Best,

I got 71%. I thought there is an error in the report that the passing score is 71%.

The exam was very ambiguous. You could defend some of the answers even if marked wrong. I don't understand this attitude of Oracle/Sun.
I got 70% and passing is 71%. Damn.

I've already written to the Oracle via the Contact Form http://education.oracle.com/pls/eval-eddap-dcd/OU_SUPPORT_OCP.home?p_source=OCP
I wanted to know, why they increased the passing score for 14-18% making the exam and questions on my opinion far more difficult, as Java EE 5 multiple choice exams. I can imagine, that the middle score was good enough, but 90% of participants have already SCEA of the previous version (like me), this probably explains that, but for the people, who took or will take it for the first time, it's very high passing score in general.

If some other participants, which are also not agree with the passing policy will do the same, it could probably help.

68% but I only spent 3 days preparing and only did the exam because it was free so not too disappointed

I had passed the SCEA 5 beta and it was no where near that difficult. At least for me it was straightforward (without having any preparations) and the passing score was lower (60% I believe) than for this certification and the questions .. a lot easier ( no Adam Bien patterns , no Bitter EJB patterns just plain old CoreJ2EE and GoF + they were never that ambiguous).

I did not invest more time or money back then either. Just applied for it 2 weeks in advance.
Both times I was employed and busy. Passed with a comfortable margin then .. now barely made it.
The SCEA 5 beta counted towards my architect certification from Sun.
I wonder if I can get away with OCMJEA 6 without also doing the part 2/part 3 and training parts if I passed the beta (equivalent of upgrade exam ).
Asked Oracle but nobody answered .. yet.

@Mihai, that's definitely the case. Oracle announced, that the 1z0-807 is the only exam which needs to passed in order to get OCMJEA 6. The same is now visible in the upgrade path.
