================
Hi Garry,
I gave essay exam on 4th & nearly 5-6 days before I uploaded the assignment.
================
Can you do that? Sit the exam, and submit the assignment later??
Cause I have to sit the exam by next Tuesday. (Afterwards the voucher expires with Sylvan). And I was going to upload the assignment on Monday because of that. But if I can spend few more days improving my documentation, then that's great.
Please advise.

I am not exactly sure but i guess most people, including myself first upload the assignment and then take the essay exam.
But i also found some people although 1 or two who had first taken the essay exam and than uploaded.
I guess it is sensible to be with the majority.
All the best.
Garry

Normally prospective developer upload assignment and take a test. If still you have time, I think best thing would be call SUN or email them to find it.

I really doubt that you can take the test first... since the essay exam is based on your submission.

No. You can not do that !
I asked to the Sun educational representative when I bought the Essay voucher....He said..."NO ! upload first and Essay next..."

don't worry and do what you can do (upload the assignment) as soon as possible.
i have read one or two cases, the candidates were not able to upload the assignment before the assay exam because of some uploading problems.
best of luck,
sanjeev.

At last,
I've submitted the assignment at 1:00 AM this morning, sat the essay exam at 10:30.
Joined the waiting game now.
Thank you all for your help, specially Mark and Herve.
Cheers
Najib

i did my essay exam first the same day i uploaded my code.
when i emailed sun to ask for the uploading permission, they didn't tell anything saying i can't do the essay first.

I forgot to mention that at the end of the exam, the message says that you should have sat for this exam AFTER submitting the assignment.
So generally this is the way Sun expects you to do.
Surely a day or few days difference isn't going to be a big deal.
But why risk it!
