Has anyone taken the follow up exam before uploading the assignment? Is it a requirement to upload the assignment before taking the follow up exam or can it be uploaded a few days after taking the exam? This is what I plan on doing and am bit concerned now that this could be a problem.
Hi Jerry, Welcome to JavaRanch. Sun have been nice enough in the past to allow people to do the follow up exam before they have uploaded the assignment. This sometimes happens when people try and do the upload on the same day as their exam, and find that they cannot do the upload (see the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ answer to "Why can't I upload my assignment?"). But be aware that this is just Sun choosing to be nice up to now. They could decide tomorrow that they will not allow it - after all it does state on the Sun Education SCJD exam detailspage that Completion of Step 1 is a prerequisite to doing the exam. So Sun would be within their rights to make you do the exam a second time if you tried to deliberately do things in the wrong order. Those people that asked if they could upload after the exam have been told that they must do the upload before they take their exam (as one example, see Svetlana Koshkina's post in this thread). So you can try and get away with it, but I would advise you to try and do things properly. Regards, Andrew
