my store is a bit long , I have taken my SCJP in July last year and shortly after that, I started the SCJD.
The exam was taken on 17.09.09 and like Roel De Nijs suggested, I wrote an email to sun, that I've uploaded my assignment and taken the exam,
just that they know about this and make the assessment a bit faster. They gave me immediately an answer, that everything is fine and that was
the last thing I've heard from them for so many months
I wrote many mails during the months, nothing happened, then I wrote many mails to different locations (I found the addresses on the internet)
email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, suncert_ww <firstname.lastname@example.org> etc.
Just for 2 weeks ago I received an email, that they are sorry about this issue, but now my certificate is ready to be mailed to me, I have to update my
personal information only, than I saw, that in the mail it was about SCJP, so I answered, that I already have the SCJP and the issue is about the SCJD,
then after 2 weeks, I received my second mail from sun/oracle:
Your assignment and essay exam were sent to our assessors for grading on 2009-09-17. We will escalate this and request processing on priority basis. We are sorry for the delay.
Once your assignment score is returned, your results will be transferred to the Sun Certification Database at http://www.certmanager.net/sun. If you have obtained a passing score, you will receive email confirmation of your successful certification and your certification package will be processed.
We appreciate your patience.
I mean, I already know that, what is that for a fu**ing answer, should I wait another 6 weeks for assessment from now. That was really stupid from sun/oracle.
Maybe they cannot do anything at all, because of the acquisition oracle/sun, but they could send an automatic email from the beginning to all with the simple text like:
blah blah acquisition, it can take i bit long to assess your assignment, sorry and so on and so on
So now I will wait and pray, that I've passed the exam
