I'm having difficulty having an email conversation with the email address Sun provides for the SCJD.
See the email below.
I'm not sure what to do about this.
I got my grade: 310, 10 short
on getting the certificate. In the report it says 10 points less on "General Considerations" and 80 less on "Locking". Ok, it doesn't lock enough, but it's still a lot of points considering the work in it. I think a percentage would be more elegant.
But then my problem, there's no reason given for the 10 points less
on "General Considerations". If I could just have that one straightened, I would right away do the exam once more . But the communication with Sun is difficult. See my email to Sun below.
On this email I got no answer from Sun on the 10 points part. Just again, the same sentence " Major point loss on Locking". So I sent an email Again, stating the question again asking kindly if they could read the email again and give an answer on the "General Considerations" part. I didnt'get an email back. I sent an email again, I still don't get an answer back. This is taking three weeks now. I don't like this style, I don't like them not answering back. Problem is, I can only talk to their email address...........Some other people dealt with this problem? I allready read somewhere on this forum that actually a third party is grading the exam. Someone knows which company?

I just found out that I failed for the SCJD exam, that is all points (80) on Locking and 10 points on General Considerations.
For the Locking part there is a reason given; for the General Considerations there's no reason given why I have there -10 points.
I would be grateful to know, because for me it's easier and probably less risky (again a lot of money) to change the -10 points case on General Considerations, than to revise all of the locking part.
My details and exam details are copied below.
Thank you for considering,

Major point loss for record-locking mechanism, which is not according to spec. Your lock() method does notblock when trying to lock a locked record.
