Tomorrow (Friday, 3/7) will be exactly four weeks since I took the part III exam...so far I haven't gotten my grade yet. Of those who have gotten their grades back, how long did it take?
Regards,

Byron,
You are almost there. I guess they take almost 5 weeks for grading all the stuff. I'd uploaded my project and taken the IIIrd test in 28th Nov 02. I got my results on 2nd Jan 03.
Good luck,
Ashok

I had to wait for about 3 weeks after I took the part III exam.

I don't want to complain but Sun has to be in the customer satisfaction business and frankly I am extremely unsatisfied. If they can't manage to get a quick turnaround for a mark for an assignment how can customers expect them to get quick implementations for enterprise size systems.
I am 100% sun supporter but my coworkers employer and customers are starting to question all the
bugs in the certfication process. A comment that was put to me by a microsoft guy was that if sun can't even get this simple process straight why should customers trust them with their enterprise systems?
It looks like the time is starting to get longer and longer on the turn around on assigments and certifications. Sun has to recognize we are customers in the whole process and word of mouth advertising is going to hurt them big time.
For all our sakes let's put some pressure on Sun for better customer service.

I support andy. 4 week is too long time to evaluate a certification. They have to improve the delivery.
By the way how do you know when sun declares your certification results

Not only does Sun look bad when they are slow but in some cases it is costing companies money. If you are waiting for your certification and it is a mandatory requirement for a job and you don't here back for 6 to 8 weeks you basically are forfeiting that job.
