I made the dreadful error of not reading the date format as mm/dd/yyyy in my voucher and as a result missed my SCJP exam. Now, i'm sure know the answer to this question , but please bear with me cause i want to be sure on this one.. Can i salvage something from this UNUSED scjp voucher(expired) or is it a total waste now?

Strange...I just checked my Sun voucher and it uses dd-MMM-yyyy. If even Sun can't get their date handling correct, what hope is there?

You should check the sales laws that were in effect when you bought your voucher (and all the emails/letters you got very carefully).

If you were told the date was dd/mm/yyyy and all the documentation says it's dd/mm/yyyy (or you have other proof), then that is what should be binding on the retailer (note: not Sun, unless you bought direct) of the voucher as it would form part of the contract of sale.

If Sun says that's wrong and the date is actually mm/dd/yyyy, then I think you have a claim against the retailer (again, not Sun unless you bought direct) for breach of contract. You should try and get a refund, or get them to pay for a new voucher. You may have to negotiate hard, i.e. agree to sit the exam before a specific date.

As I said though, check you local sales laws (or whichever ones were in force); they may offer you different protection or deal with contract formation in a totally different way.

If you paid by credit card, you might even have a claim on the credit card company to the retailer's breach. But once again, check your local laws.

It appears that a whole lot of people are suffering with the same problem.
Even mine was supposed to expire on 07/08/09 , which a couple of days ago, i came to know has already expired.
I called up NIIT CP, Delhi, where I came to know about this fact, and he also told me, that I was not the first one with
this kind of problem. I think SUN should definitely do something about this, as so many people cant be fools.
It is the company's fault.

Hi,

Kindly note that Sun Vouchers are always in mm/dd/yy format. As the confusion prevailed for this particular batch the voucher date has been extended till 7th August. Kindly register for your exam ASAP to avoid last minute rush.
