I see many people taking the beta, but nobody is posting results. Is the results not given for beta and do you get any certificate at all for passing the test ??

Will try to digest the info posted before.
No, you don't get the immediate score. The only thing you get is 'thanks, you'll know the result in 6-8 weeks time when the beta process is over'. And a nice feeling you finished with it as well
The cert team studies the tests, reads the comments, decides which questions should be dropped at all and not counted, which should be modified/corrected, and which should be just counted. Depending on the performance of the first 400 candidates a pass score will be set and everybody will be assessed. This, however, doesn't mean you have better chances if many people do not perform at a credible level. Of those 400 there will be those who will fail.
This beta gives a better insight on the exam for SunEd, and somewhere at the end August - start September they come up with a final version. The beta candidates who passed will have received the certificate by this time.
Now some queries of mine (don't take them too serious)
1. Is the cert going to carry the 'Beta' mark on it?
2. The validity of the cert. Is it 2 years as for the rest? Well, the logic is we had 3 times more questions, so the validity period should be 3 times longer

I am sure that there will be a "beta" mark on the certificate.

The certification you get for the beta is exactly the same as if you had taken the final exam. There is no difference as far as Sun, your certificate, or anyone else is concerned. The only BAD part is that you must wait for your results. Andrew gave an excellent summary of the process.
When you DO start getting your results, please post them here!
cheers and good luck to all, and thanks so much Andrew for all the help you're providing here.
