How do I verify if IBM received my faxed score report?

I've faxed my SCJP Exam Score Report to IBM, and trying to confirm if they've received it. I've sent several emails to certify@us.ibm.com in the past 2 weeks, but no response!
Is there any other way of verifying if they've added the credit to my profile?

They wont give you any reply on score report issues.

You better ask for accessing the e-certificate for ICED, and then they will tell you what you should do.

Kevin,
I got a reply within 2 days. I included my SP number in the email. This was after I had become ICED.

Can't think why they don't respond to you. It's bad manners.

Thanks for your replies, guys. So once I complete 484, 486 & 287, and assuming they've received my faxed score report & added the credit to my profile, will my certificate be generated automatically? Or do I need send another couple of million emails to them before they process it?

I don't want my certificate to be delayed due to their sluggish customer service!!

Kevin,
I got a 'welcome, you're ICED' type email the day after my final exam. It asks you whether you want to print your own copy of the certificate. If you agree, you get another email with the details.
All this crossed over with my email to ask if they received my Java score sheet.

I passed on the 24/6 but still waiting for badge!

Best of luck.

Gentlemen,

I finally got a reply from IBM confirming that they've received my SCJP score report & added the credit to my profile. This after 2-1/2 weeks of persistent emailing.

I've already cleared 486, hope to finish 484 & 287 soon...wish me luck!

Cheers,

Kev

First they didn't reply to a even single email, now they've sent replies to each & every email that I sent in the past two weeks within a period of 2 hours. It's like the entire Ceritfication department was on vacation, and decided to come back on the same day...that too on a Friday! Geeeez!

In fact, you may not need to send the SCJP report at this moment. I sent my report to IBM after I passed 287, 484 and 486.

Anyway, I guess IBM will soon review ICED 5.0, as WSAD 6.0 is going to be released.

Best wishes for your exams.

Really? So should I stop preparing for the ICED 5.0 and wait for ICED 6.0 to come? And then the beta might be free as well..

It depends, but I dont think ICED 6.0 will come out within 1 year.


And then the beta might be free as well..

IBM never give out free beta exams, usually, it is 60% off of the original price. However, the beta exams are not like those offered by SUN's. There are less resources for IBM's beta, as you can expect, becos there are very less materials for the live exams.
