Hi
I scored 138/155 which as far as I can tell is a pass but the grade I've been assigned is an 'F'.
Does 'F' stand for Fail? If it does, how can that be when the pass mark is 124/155.
I've been waiting 4 weeks for for my certificate. I didn't pay any attention to the grade since the score indicates a good pass. Now I've waited so long I'm started to panic.
Any ideas?

Hi Simon,
I had a similar experience (I think.) Here is what happened to me. I submitted SCJD and scored 13x/15x (I can't remember exactly.) A month or so later I received my certificate and wallet card, etc. and my CertManager web page indicated that I passed as well.
However when I looked at the grade assigned to me on my Prometric account account page, I had a score of 'F'.
After contacting Sun (who directed me to Prometric) I received a letter from Prometric indicating that the Sun's results stand and that the Prometric assignment scores for assignments submitted through CertManager do not reflect the true score. I am not sure exactly why this is (I am guessing it's because the CertManager and Prometric information is stored in two different databases and the two aren't synchronized.) But, given this, as long as your CertManager page reflects the true facts and you get your certificate in the mail, I think you are fine.

Cheers Daryl
I feel a bit happier now. I'll sit and wait for my certificate. I emailed Sun just to be on the safe side.
