Is it possible to fail the assignment but pass the written exam?
If so, do I need to re-take the written exam?

No, partner.

thanks...
Does that mean that I would not have to retake the essay exam (CX-310-027) ?

or

should the written exam only be taken in the event of a successful assignment?

I guess the latter doesn't make sense because it could be a while before the assignment result is given I understand.
It would be nice if there was more info on the Sun website regarding assignments procedure (scjd/scea).

Hum... you got me right there I don't know, but theoretically, you would have to retake the essay exam, since you can architecturally change your solution a lot. I can't really tell you for sure. But you can send an email to who2contact@sun.com, and I believe they will give you the answer you're looking for.

In the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ, there is the question "Should I wait to find out my score from the assignment before taking the essay exam?". You might want to check it out.

One thing it mentions is that there is no way to retake the essay exam - it is a one time exam. Even if you have to resubmit your assignment you will not have to retake the essay exam.

Regards, Andrew
