I recently sucessfully completed the SCJP so I thought that I proceed straight ahead and take on the SCJD aswell. As we know, the SCJD consists of two parts, the assignment (310-252A) and the exam (310-027). However after I registered on the site where you can download the assignment (https://ibt.prometric.com/oracle), I only see the following tests:
Since this is my first attempt, I guess I cannot take the Resubmission (310-252R), which leaves me abit puzzled because 310-252A is not available.
Does anyone know if you are supposed to take 310-252R instead of 310-252A or if there's something wrong with the site?
Congratulations with passing SCJP
I see 2 possible causes for your issue:
a) you just passed SCJP certification and the different certification databases (oracle and prometric) are not sync'ed yet, so they don't know you are already are a SCJP.
b) something is indeed wrong with the website, maybe already related to the new test delivery partner Oracle has chosen (see sticky post in this forum)
In either case I would send an e-mail to email@example.com and ask for some clarification (don't forget to mention your prometric id)

Thank you. I already sent an email to that adress but alas oracle seems to be pretty slow when it comes to a response.

Let's hope they resolve this issue in the - not so distant - future, seeing as the requirements for the SCDJ change on 1. August.

I believe they normally answer the questions within 3-5 business days. That email address is the single point of contact for all certification questions, so I guess they get a lot of e-mails each day

Thank you, I will give that email a try.
However I was a bit surprised to see the assignment was priced at $125. I thought the price was $300 / £202? (The same as an Oracle Java exam).
Especially when you see that the re-submission project shown in the screenshot is priced at $300.
PS: I also got the URLyBird assignment. I wonder if that is coincidence or perhaps it is the only one they are issuing to candidates just now...
