After 12 weeks of waiting I got the Oracle's email saying I passed.
I had Big Smokes Cigar assignment (upload on 27th September) and took the essay on 29th September.
Got 132/160pts and it was a big relief, because I followed Mark Cade's style of diagrams, and I was worried
that deployment diagram will be incomplete. But fortunatelly adding hardware profiles got me required portion
Thank you for all the valuable help/information I could get on this Forum.
Good luck for all other people still waiting!!
