I know this question is merely due to a lack of patience on my part, but for some of the more recent who passed, how long did it take between the time submitting the essay and application and receiving your score online? I know Sun says 4-6 weeks, but please will someone tell me that that is wrong and it's so much shorter! Thanks!
Well would you believe it. Got my result today after 8 days!
I'm a united (manchester) fan too and I've got �50 extra in my pocket after last nights fantastic game. I've lost my voice and I'm grinning like an idiot at the moment!
This report shows the total 1.4 SCJD points that could have been awarded in each section, and the actual number of points you were awarded. This is provided to give you per-section feedback on your strengths. The maximum possible score is 400; the minimum to pass is 320. General Considerations (maximum = 100): 100 Documentation (maximum = 70): 70 O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30 GUI (maximum = 40): 37 Locking (maximum = 80): 44 Data store (maximum = 40): 40 Network server (maximum = 40): 40
Back to the cert I got the famous 44/80. It think this is probably to do with my locking not working well in all cases. I think there is another thread open on this at the moment but I'd reiterate Andrew's advice about checking that the locking works in all cases and not just those that are required for the assignment. i.e. creating records and orphaned locks etc..
I think my client GUI was up to scratch so i doubt the 3 points lost in that area are for that. I didn't provide a server GUI to stop and start the server although I did provide a dialog for configuration of the server. If the user wanted to stop the server they had to use ctrl^c or close the command window. That's where I think the 3 points went. No drama at any rate.
Overall I'm very happy with the result and dare I say pleased to be moving on to something new even though I've learned lots. I've had the assignment for just less than a year although my effort on it has ebbed and flowed. I guess many can associate with this!
The last thing to say is that I have benefited in so many ways from this forum and I'd like to say thanks to everyone involved especially the moderators that make it all work so well.
