It is better that we stop all the arguments here. I believe Afsah. The test itself is too easy,anyone who has basic knowledge of servlet and JSP can pass it. Let talk about more JAVA here, not who is the youngest or oldest,does not matter.Okay?

My heartiest congratulations to Dear Afsah Shafqat on her great success!!!
Well Afsah it's really nice that you are not disappointed from such stupid comments from persons like Lala and why should you?
After looking at Lala's replies i think he is a man who has achieved nothing in his life at his own and thus he just can't appreciate others on their success.So we should not mind his attitude...he is in a habbit of discouraging others.

Peter I am not in favour of shifting this thread to MeaningLess drive as this is not a meaning less thread rather this is the story of "The World's Youngest SCWCD" and this will really be a great source of inspiration for people doing WCD prep.like me.Rather you should warn people who are trying to discourage the great ranchers.

I agree with you Win that we should talk more about Java but these kind of postings tends and motivate us for talking more about java and related technologies!So we should appreciate exceptionals irrelevant of our age and regions.

Well Done Afsah and keep it up!
I wish you luck for your future dear.

Hello Ranchers
I passed SCWCD exam yesterday (21st of Nov.2001) at the age of 12 years 8months and 25 days; My DOB is 26th. Feb 1989.I am a student of class VIII at White House Grammar School Karachi. I'm learning Java at Sir Syed University under the banner of OPERATION BADAR...An IT Education Movement.I am also assistant teacher in OPERATION BADAR.I passed earlier my SCJP exam on 28th. of June this year with 72%.
My recent score in SCWCD is not so good; it is mere 67% .I was feverish at the time of exam.(running a temperature of 1o2 F.)
Java ranch links were proved helpful especially Miftah's notes.
Afsah


Afsah,
Congratulations on your certification! I hope you will use your knowledge to assist the learning of others here on JavaRanch, and I wish you the best of luck in your academic and professional future.
Afsah, I would like to offer some advice as an older brother of sorts, and please realize that I do not mean to offend or to condescend you..
You have proven to us all that you are very intelligent (who knows, maybe a genius), but you have also demonstrated some of the trappings of youth. What struck me about your post is its lack of graciousness and humility. You did thank me for my notes, and I appreciate that. But the core of your message was essentially dedicated to boasting about your achievement at such a young age.
If you read threads such as Sonalika's and others who have achieved greatness on JavaRanch, you will notice that most if not all show two very important virtues: graciousness for the help they received along the way (whether it be from other Ranchers or from God) and humility regarding their success.
Please, be proud of your success, but also be balanced. It's possible that you will resent my post, but please at least give it some thought.. it will help you in your future.
Respectfully,
-Miftah Khan

miftah... what a humbling reply..
i totally agree with u, and after reading your post i realised that i'm not gracious and humble enough.. (i apply it on myself too ) well, probably i'm just yearning for more appreciation from others ^_^
which is rather bad, since that shows i'm deprived... i don't know what it is, but if i'm not humble and gracious enough, i must be deprived of at least *something*
well, it's a character-building reply, miftah. thanks a lot

Hello Ranchers!
I'm here again to communicate you.
Don Liu!
I have already mentioned in my earlier males (dated 21st, 25th and 29th of Nov.) that I passed SCJP examination on 28th of June this year at the age of 12 years 4 months and 2 days. Probably you couldn�t read those mails properly.
Win Yu!
Thank you for your belief. Yes I'm agreed that the test is very easy; even easier than SCJP.

Dear Annie Naqvi!
So many thanks as you presented my case very well. I hope that very soon you will pass your SCWCD exam with flying colours.

Sarmad Sindhi!
Thanks for posting the URL of my interview. This interview was published in the mid of May 2001 well before my SCJP exam. I have doubts about access of this URL from outside Pakistan.
Dear Miftah Khan,
I acknowledge your wishful saying and really respect your brotherly advice. But I feel that you misjudged my personality. I also realize that this misjudgment is not your mistake. I am a humble creature of God and I praised Him a lot on passing SCWCD; I wanted to praise Him at this forum too but last time when I did the same after passing SCJP; some people uttered very cheap and biased comments. So I avoided to let them a chance again. As far as Ranchers are concerned I admitted their role especially yours. Java Ranch is a very good site for learning but it was my drawback that I couldn't be benefited by it to a great extent because of two reasons: firstly I couldn't develop the habit of active participation in the forum and secondly I faced some shortage of time as a deadline of 21st Nov. was given by our organization--Operation Badar.

Ali Nazeer!
Thank you very much. Wishes and prayers are the real provisions for me in this journey of my life. I want to serve my organization my country, my continent and my world.
Quratulain,azm! and Sarwar Ali!
I�m really thankful to you Badarians. You are the witness of my untiring efforts. Did you read my e-mail, which was forwarded by Sir Zia?

Hello Ranchers!
I'm here again to have a conversation with you.
Quratulain!
#My future plans? Too many but I�m nowadays focusing on OOAD (Object Oriented Analysis & Design Using UML) certifcation# It will be my pleasure to give you some tips but as it is a SCWCD forum so give me your e-mail address. I will e-mail you regarding it directly.
# Congratulations for having such a nice teacher; obviously he is among the best OB-teachers. Best of luck.
Ijlal!
Don�t Loose your patience which you already have rightly shown in your first e-mail when you had written:
�I cannot blame the few of you, who have shown disbelief at Afsah's achievements. In fact I congratulate you, too, for your courage to speak out your minds and going against the flow. I would have done the same if I were in your boots, but the fact is I work in the same organization as Afsah and therefore know her personally, and mind you, I am not a 13-year-old but rather, a 36-year-'oldy'-old!�
Don Liu!
I would like to give you the reference of my reply dated 29th of November: �Don Liu! Yes I passed SCJP on 28th. of June this year. Khad M! I don't think any one can match Lala.Peter! I'm agreed with you.�I here explain further that I don�t want to bracket you with Lala. Everyone is different from others. We must respect different people with their differences and I�m happy that most of the Ranchers are doing the same.
Abid Ali!
So many thanks for your congratulation and belief. Dear Abid! we must not be upset from disbelief of others; actually this disbelief is a real honour for me because it indicates that I have achieved some thing unachievable & unbelievable..
Dear Baseer!
XML? Oh no!.. as mentioned above nowadays I�m studying about OOAD but I don�t know when I�ll be able to appear in it�s certification. Any advice from you in this regard will be welcomed.
Best wishes to all Ranchers
Afsah
