Hello Ranchers,

Is any of you aware what are the SUN policies on taking part III outside US? I will be taking shortly Part I exam and then will download Part II in US but then, some months down the road I might move elsewhere outside of US. Would I be able take Part III outside US?

Or, since there is not retake of Part III, should I just go in to Prometric in US for clear failure and then just retake/repay the fee for the re-submission of Part II?

Cheers,
J.

Personally, I don't know that it's worth the expense to simply take part III for the sake of failing it and getting to the resubmission of part II.

My suggestion is to contact Sun Educational Services and find out what their policy is. I don't imagine that it matters terribly much where you take the individual parts as they're all part of one system, but as I don't work for them, I can't really give a reliable answer.

Since you'll find Prometric Testing Centers around the globe it should not be a problem at all to appear for the test outside the US. Personally, I took some of the OCP exams at Prometric/Australia, some in Prometric/Germany.
However, I am not sure if you can use a voucher bought in the US in other countries. Better ask Sun.

Taking part 3 before working on part 2 is not a good idea. Because Part 3 is about part 2. How will you answer them witout working on part 2?

FYI ... and so the SunCert@thomson.com says:

"If your voucher begins with the letters SE, it is valid world-wide. Please remember you have one year from the voucher purchase date to take your exam."
