Thought this might be useful to people whose results get delayed.
Well I have not received my part2 and 3 results yet. It is almost 7 weeks now.
After reading on this forum about the time taken for grading, I started sending emails to SunCert@thomson.com, SunCert@Prometric.com enquiring about whether the assignment has been sent for grading. The reply I got was, no it wasnt and that they will notify me when it is resolved. After going back and forth with no results, I emailed using the "Contact Sun Training" link on sun site.
And here is the reply I got today from the Sun Certification Customer Support, with email id in the email chain: firstname.lastname@example.org
"We have discovered that your assignment and essay exam never matched in our system, which prevented your assignment from being sent to the assessors for grading. We are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.Unfortunately, this will result in an additional processing tim. We will contact you once your results are returned."
So I will wait for another 2 months starting today, before I hear about my results. Probably if I would have waited for my results without following up, I would have waited forever.

Excerpts from another reply from Certification Customer Service:
...Please be assured that both Sun Training management and Prometric management are aware of the delay in the processing of your assignment. This is an issue that is affecting several certification candidates and we have escalated the issue for resolution as quickly as possible... A problem with the database is preventing your assignment and essay exam from pairing together...
