Hello Evelyn,
I'd be grateful if you could clarify if Sun have any strategy for handling the marking of tests that encountered the "out of system resources" error.
Obviously I can't speak for other people, but I typed in my answers to the Drag and Drop questions manually in the comments.
Will these be marked?
Additionally, have the uploads for these tests been checked for corruption (i.e. Do the Drag and Drop questions we answered before running out of resources upload intact?)
Thanks in advance
Paul

Sorry - should be more specific
GB5T is Interquad IT in Leeds
I sat the exam yesterday and was another person unfortunate enough to encounter the "Out Of System Resources" Error. I wish I had read the earlier post about confirming with the test centre that the box had 128MB of RAM and ran Windows 2000 before I sat the test.
I used the comments box to type in the answers to the remaining drag and drop questions although this slowed me down considerably. I was doing fine for time up until this point. In the end I was only able to check about a third of my answers.
A word of warning for those of you that are unfortunate enough to enter this problem:
CHECK YOUR DRAG AND DROP ANSWERS AS YOU GO ALONG. I TRIED TO REVIEW ONE OF THEM (WHICH WIPES OUT YOUR ANSWER) AFTER I ENCOUNTERED THE ERROR AND HAD TO REDO THE QUESTION BY PUTTING MY ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS BOX). I DIDN'T DARE TO REVIEW ANY OTHER DRAG AND DROP QUESTIONS AND JUST HOPE THAT MY ORIGINAL ANSWERS BEFORE THE RESOURCE FAILURE ARE INTACT.
I would just like to ask Evelyn (or anyone else involved with adminstering/marking the beta) if these problems will be taken into account while marking? Is marking automated or will a human being actually take answers in the comments boxes into account

For reference I took the exam in the UK at centre GB5T
Good luck to those yet to do the test.
