SCEA (not 5) results do not sum up

I submitted part II and took part III early Feb.

I was told to go to certmanager.net/sun to check the result, but it's always "Pending". I happened to visit https://www.certmanager.net/sun_assignment/ today, and found my grade has been there since 3 days ago. Hmm...

Anyway, according to that site, my scores are:
Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 39
Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 40 Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 10
So, the total should be 89. But on the same page, it says: Score: 82.

Anybody experienced this before? Is that because of part III? No matter how, PASS is what matters.

==================
The only book I used during preparation of Part II and III was: Sun Certified Enterprise Architecture for J2EE Technology Study Guide (Sun Microsystems Press)

I used MS Visio, with a Stencil and Template for UML 2.0 http://softwarestencils.com/uml/index.html (I paypal the developer a little money to appreciate that.) I could not draw a good loop or branch just using Visio itself.

To prepare part III, basically I answered the following questions by myself before the exam: "How does your system handle xxxx", while xxxx are those "--bility" concerns as the SCEA book listed, and key features like session/transaction/security/state/.... I found most how-to ideas on web.

First of all congratulations!
I haven't seen this before, but then again, I haven't submitted my assignment yet.
I suppose that you'll receive your officialk score chart by snail mail soon. If that still has the same calculation error, I suppose you could ask Prometric about it.

Happy celebration

You won't receive a score chart by snail mail for part 3. Certmanager is the only way to get the score for SCEA part2+3. So you should definately contact the certmanager people and ask what is going on.

Thanks for replies.

I emailed Sun Certification Support [certification@educationservicesgroup.com], and got this reply:

"We apologize for the error. The results are entered manually and obviously there was a typographical error. We have corrected your score."

Entered manually? I guess they need a system to get the score summed up automatically. I can design the system for them.
