hi friends this is a shocking news and really bad news too, i dont know to whom i have to inform about this but i could not able to control after knowing this fact...

sun certification cost of the voutcher is 7,200(rupees).. and if you pay addition 7,200 we will write the exam behalf of you and how much percentage you want tell us we will get it for you..

this is scenario in hyderabad. i heard it from my friend it happening in hyderabad almost in all the promatric centres.
even s.c.w.c.d too they are doing this type of business.

one of my friends ,friend resently passed s.c.j.p.1.4 with 94% from hyderabad ..its all one night preparation that set.(pay and get)

only talent can be some what measured by these certifications .if prometric centres itself is doing this .. whom to tell.

friends am sorry if i am wrong to tell you guys like this but its happening in hyderabad.

really am loosing my interest on certifications itself.

Well, thats a shocking news. But, if it is true whoever is buying the certification is surely not getting the advantage of knowing the subject at all and of what use is a certificate if you don't have the knowledge of how it all works?

Some of us here write the exam to prove to ourselves that we are worth getting a certification.

hi ,

I am fully agree with Pillai that the certification is for ones satisfaction and to validate ones knowledge .

Sun Certification is a greate exam and it gives u a immesnse happiness when u clear it by ur Knowledge and talent .

I have recently got SCJP1.4 (96%) on 30 Jan from Noida(NIIT prometric ) and i know how mcuh effort i had to put in.
There one was even not allowed to speak and i was asked for my identification (photograph and passport)before appearing for exam.

So if some centers are playing a bad game,then its our job to stop it.
I request u to ,tell this matter to sun cert security manager .These guys will take care of this issue.And I know they wont even hesitate to disqualify those centers.

And remeber "SUN CERT IS A GREAT EXAM ,DONT LOOSE YOUR INTEREST IN IT ".
EVERY COIN HAS TWO SIDES.

regards

-santosh

It also explains why some people with certification signatures longer than my home address end up asking such... lets say "intelligent NOT" questions. Guess they got hired for their 95% pass on SCJP and now they actually have to deliver.

hi mani i have not seen this trend in hyderabad .
now there are only few(about 4) prometric centres in hyderabad
which has sun 's license.
sun cancelled license of all other prometric centres
in mid december 2005.

i gave my scwcd exam on 28thdec. i got 76 %
and these prometric centres have standard of gre exam.
there was proper identity checking befor exam and


why are you spreading rumours without any knowledge.

and one more fact

there is no use of these certification without knowledge.

I have heard this in SCJP forum also. It sucks totally.

Mani Kanth you should get in touch with Evelyn Cartagena-Meyer. She is a member at javaranch. Let her know the exact details about center id, name, etc..

hi rehans oberoi

see i dont want to spread rumours because it happend to my friends friend only he has got his certification s.c.j.p. with 94% like that only . but my friend is hesitating to tell the details of that person i mean where he took exam and all because he is scared . may be you have done with your sincere efoort. but corruption is going on .here am not pointing out one perticular place but its happening few months back only it happen .ok from now i wil concentrate where its happening exactly and come out with results.


why are you spreading rumours without any knowledge.

oops what wil i get by spreading rumours i think you are too staying in hyd.
so start enquirying you may find the truth.

now even i am trying for the proofs by soon i wil be back. i dont want to spread rumours or lie. its not happening only with sun certification with all certifications .
and one more thing.. you told

now there are only few(about 4) prometric centres in hyderabad
which has sun 's license.
sun cancelled license of all other prometric centres
in mid december 2005.

Hello Manikanth,

Have you have finally taken the EXAM or not?

I'm really shocked to see your post. This is really ridiculous, baseless rumour which you are spreading. I suggest you to delete this post permanently.

Your post is not just restricted to yourself or your friends alone. Entire world will be looking into it, some times by accident.

Your post is sending wrong and wierd signals to the entire world that people taking their exams in Hyderabad are passing the same by doing malpractices. If your friend's friend or your relative have cleared the exam like that, report the same to respective authorities, and you should not post that sort of baseless rumours up in FORUMS like this, which is accessed by all sort of persons world wide.

Please do not send wrong signals to people around the world that HYDERABAD is a hub of malpractices.

You may get a GOOD coaching at a very cheap price, but not a SUN certificate with your cheap MALPRACTICE.

Revisit your thoughts on this....

Please do not become or encourage WEEDS, where a group of Sacred plants are grown.

I'm sure it was not the poster's intent to imply this is happening in just one particular city, and thus drag that city down.

Furthermore, this has been reported in a number posts here in the forums, so I'd be careful to describe it as baseless rumor. Not that say that everything read on the internet is necessarily correct, but at the very least this post is not an isolated case. Of course, things may have changed since.

Lastly, mani kanth has not posted here in almost two years, so I doubt he's going to see your message.

i too heard this happening in Hyderabad. But i was damn care about it, until you get certification on you own, you wont feel satisfaction.

Dont bother about all those man, just chill, work hard and get certificate, remaining leave on interviewer, who will filter the bugs....

I agree with Ravi. People who try to get certificate through mal practices or illegal practices don't have any subject knowledge, there certificates are just to show off to there managers or for appraisal or decoration piece.

What's real purpose of certification? real purpose of certification is to get good understanding of the concepts. I write certifications because it helps me to understand concepts and helps to get my basic's right. The concepts I read help me to write my program in better and efficient way. These concepts help me to understand whats actually happening at the back end.

Yes there might be few instances as you might have pointed out but just report those incidents to SUN and stop worrying, SUN will take care of them. You get prepared for the certification in the hard way. Nothing can beat the happiness and Joy you feel once you get certified in the ethical way.

All the best Manikanth, SUN Certification's are worth taking, you can show the world you can do any thing if given chance.

I somewhat agree with this....
wether this is a fact or rumour I don't know , but what I do know is that thousands of people visit this site and I am not sure if all of them should read such messages , what if some of them loose faith in SUN and its certificates. Worse what if some people after knowing this are actually inspired to go and find such people who will write the exam for them.
Please dont get me wrong I have nothing aganist the person who started this topic or anyone who has posted here , just concerned if this might be taken in the wrong way by some people...

yes this is getting annoying...

this is a 2 yr old post(rumor), why are we replying to a rumor written 2yrs ago.

mani kanth has no proof/evidence to back up his allegations.

so case closed. this are all baseless rumors.
