I am very disappointed. Today I had to resend my assignment after more than 6 weeks of the original submission.
Following is the email thread I have had with multiple and different email addresses from Oracle:


Hi Carlos,
We checked the status with our assessors. Since the assignment process is undergoing a change, there has been delays in verifying the assignments and some files went missing during the transition process.

Due to the Oracle /Sun merge there were many assignment files for which the grading was delayed since March 2010 and some files went missing. We request you to mail us the jar file and we will get this graded on priority. You can mail to this email ID.
We are sorry for the delay and inconvenience caused We will try to resolve your issue at the earliest.

Regards,
OCP Team

Subject: Prometric ID SCJD Assignment Grading 6 WEEKS AFTER SUBMISSION

Sun-Oracle Certification,


It's been already SIX (6) weeks after I submitted my SCJD assignment for grading and I still
have NOT received my results.

Two (2) weeks ago I wrote to you and you didn't honor your word getting back to me with an answer.

This is NOT the type of response I would expect from a company like SUN-ORACLE after I have
paid a total of six hundred seventy five US$: 375 US$ for downloading the assignment + 300 US$ for the Essay exam a total of 675 US$,
to get such a poor and slow response.

When can I get my SCJD submission results?

Can you please expedite it?

It's been more than SIX (6) weeks.

Please find my SCJD Essay Exam Prometric receipt attached.


Thanks,

Hi Sun-Oracle OCP Team,

Any updates?

Hi Carlos,

Sorry to hear your assignment is still not graded. But I'm sure you'll be a SCJD very soon.

And I'm also curious to know when they will stop using the "Sun / Oracle merge" as the cause of any delay.

Kind regards,
Roel

I made the same experience: after uploading the assignment (in addition to mailing it) and taking the exam at the beginning of may, nothing happened for 9 weeks. I wrote several emails. The response:

Hi Michael,

Can you please confirm the date you have completed the assignment and essay. Have you uploaded it on Certmanager or mailed it to us, please confirm.

Regards,
OCP Team

What a question! Still no results after my confirmation. That is frustrating! I am going to bring an action against them, if I dont get a result at the end of the month.

I started attaching my jar to every e-mail I sent to them. They finally said it was sent to the assessors. Hopefully I will know the results in a few weeks.
