I think that it is highly unfair that the Beta is extended.I gave the Beta on 21st & came to know yesterdayt that the exam had been extended till 7th March.If I had waited, then I would have got 2 more weeks for studying (meaning a more chance of clearing the exam).At least some prior indication should have been given so that we (the unfortunate ones) could have rescheduled our exams.

As I stated in the other thread, life's not fair sometimes. It's how our great, wide world works.
Be that as it may, while I agree that it's not entirely fair, I'm just going to live with it. Pass or fail, at least I did my best for when I took the exam. Complaining that it's not fair does nothing to improve my score.

Well, it's really not fair, but, when I asked for my voucher I knew how much time I had to study and I certainly did my best to get as much as possible in that time frame.
I just hope to have passed the test now.

Hi,
Well maybe for many of us it is unfair, but from my point of view Sun has gave all of us a chance to look at the exam free of charge. That is why I think they have right to do it that way, so for me it is not unfair - Sun has right to do whatever it wants.
As about me - a was studying J2ME for this exam and tried to pass it yesterday. I got to know about extensions the day before. Maybe I could try to reschedule but I was psychically ready to do it yesterday so I didn't want to do any mess. I am really unsure of results - it is probable that I won't pass.
As many suggested before - Sun can make us a favor and give a chance to pass real exam for free in reward for our work on beta. I would be happy to get such a gift.

If more people had shown up to take the test it wouldn't have been extended. It's unfair to Sun that so many people went against their commitment to participate.
Also, realize that the people new to receiving the voucher are only given 2 weeks to study.
Besides, if you KNEW you had two more weeks you more than likely would have just procrastinated that much longer before REALLY studying hard.
