I took the exam last month, and basically it is very similar to SCJP 5.0 (in terms of question style). I got only 3 questions about the JSE 1.6 topics (Console, etc), and it is very simple.

Good luck.

You can take the test anywhere. What you need is a computer and internet connection.

Good Luck

Evelyn said it is September.

You will ONLY receive a FREE certification voucher if you fully complete the blueprint survey and submit it. The FREE vouchers will be sent electronically in September.

And thus, you may expect it refers to end of September.

Just wondering, can I get a "certification" after taking the beta exam? seem not... but I see people are quite interested to take them, there must be other reasons...

Why not?

You will get the certificate pack if you can pass all 3 tests, even it is a beta test.

If one clears the Part I will he get the certificate of Part I, or is it necessary to clear Parts II and III as well?


I mean are you issuing individual certificates for each Part or is there a combined certificate for the three parts?

All 3 exams will conclude 1 certificate


Can we register for part I immediately or only on Sept 19 & 20th?

Registration will be started on 9/19

Also after taking the part I exam when will the results be declared?

Normally, 6-8 weeks after the exam concluded. But since we have Part II beta, so, you will know whether you pass or fail before 11/21.

Is it possible to take parts II & III earlier to Nov 21st?

No. You can only start part II after you passed Part I.

Oh, thank you. I never use electronic voucher.

e-voucher basically equivalent to the voucher number only. Thus, SUN will send you the voucher number and you can use it at the prometric website.


Thanks a lot for the beta offer. I would like to ask when will the beta exam be available?

You may refer to the mock exam link in each forum.
