Hello Ranchers, I have a question regarding new SCEA exam. Currently I have passed Part I of old version of SCEA (CX-310-051). So I still need to pass two exams (CX-310-300A and CX-310-061) to be SCEA. Of course I would like to be a SCEA5. And here is the question: 1. should I take two missing exams and then take the upgrade exams? If so, will I have to take another three exams (upgrade for every part)?
So in total I would have to take five exams to be SCEA5 for the overall cost as below 250$ + 200$ + 3*(cost of upgrade exams)
2. should I take upgrade exam to Part I and then take CX-310-301A and CX-310-062.
So in total I would have to take three exams to be SCEA5 with the overall cost (cost of upgrade exams) + 250$ + 200$
It looks like they're offering an upgrade exam (one exam, multiple choice, see other posts in this forum) from the original SCEA to SCEA for JEE 5, with the new exam being US$100. There doesn't seem to be a direct path for those who have only finished part of the original, unless you're planning on abandoning that path to try the new exam, in which case you're starting over.
Either way you go, you're taking three more exams - either the two remaining parts of the first SCEA and then the upgrade (assuming you pass Part II/III on the first try), or the three parts of SCEA5 (again, assuming you pass Part II/III on the first try).
