Hi Guys,
I just talked to Evelyn. First off, I know some of your are upset about the extension but I'd ask you to have some perspective. Running these betas costs Sun money. Every extra day it runs, costs Sun some more money. So they don't make these extensions lightly.
As of today, Evelyn has given out more than 600 vouchers, but only 200 people have showed up! This low percentage was not expected, and it has caused the situation to be somewhat unpredictable, as you have experienced.
So I ask you all to be patient, everybody involved is trying to make this as much of a win-win as possible!
The good news here is that because of the somewhat low turnout, you still have time to take the beta!
The beta has been getting good solid reviews, so crack your books and get out there and take this FREE exam
Bert

Since there has been an extension in the Beta exam date, does that mean that it will take a more time for sun to launch the actual exam ? and also getting the results of the exam?
How will we get the results of the exam ? Will it by exam or post ?
regards

Most likely.

How will we get the results of the exam ? Will it by exam or post ?


If you keep a tag on Sun certification database, results are posted there. Even www.2test.com usually posts results as passed/failed when the results are released. But we get the results (the one we get at the end of normal exam) by snail mail. I don't think we would get results by email.
Best wishes
