Hi All,

I sat in my VCAP5-DCA exam on 5th June 2013. If I am not wrong, we should get the result within 15 days. I sent an email to certification@vmware.com and got the reply that I will be notified of my results in 30 business days. When did the result declaration time change from 15 days to 30 days?

My VMware Case Number is: 13338928206. Can anybody please confirm whether it takes that long for the result of VCAP5-DCA exam?

Thanks - AG

Apparently they are busy with the VCAP-CID and CIA exams. A mate of mine sat the DCA and got the same email as you did.

I know it's difficult to wait that long and dont see why we are made to wait that long, exams like the CCIE lab are graded the same day - why it takes VMware so much longer is a mystery, Ah well, you got to wait.

P.S Try emailing Randy Becraft at VMware, the most helpful person around at VMware.

I would suggest not emailing Randy right now as he is dealing with some personal family issues right now.

Our exams are manually marked and reviewed. This is to help ensure that if simple things like names and such do not deduct points. AG, please email me directly at lbourque@vmware.com and we'll see if we can get you your score. Have you double checked your Pearson account to see if it's been updated?

@lbourque, got a question for you please mate. I just checked my Pearson account and the status of my VCAP5 - DCA still shows up as "Taken". I passed it 2 months ago. Are Pearson being slack or something? Not that the update in Pearson bothers me, I just thought I'd bring it up while I had your attention to this thread.

Hi lbourque,

I have emailed you on your id with all the details. I check my pearson account daily and it shows the status as "taken".

Thanks for your concern and I appreciate you taking it up personally.

Kind Regards - AG

I don't think your PearsonVUE status will change as it's VMware who mark/score the DCA exam, rather than it being done by the PearsonVUE testing software.

Hi Scott,

But my other exams like VCP3 and VCP5 show pass next to them and VCAP-DCA shows taken. Maybe pearsonvue change the status only after vmware updates the transcript. No idea.

VCP exams are scored by the PearsonVUE testing software at the time of completion - it's their systems that tell VMware you've passed, but the VCAP-DCA exams are scored by a person at VMware and nobody from PearsonVUE is involved in that process - that's exactly my point.

All my certifications are on my VMware transcript on vmware.com, but my VCAP-DCA only shows as "taken" on my exam history on pearsonvue.com.

You will get an email from VMware with your VCAP-DCA result once it's been scored by them.

Hi asrarguna,

Dont Worry about the certificate. I received it after 2 months. Just be in touch with the  certification@vmware.com.

VMWare will assign one person from the respective country  and he or she will coordinate with you for the same.

So have patience.

Thanks

PravinU.

Rafael,

I'd give it until Monday or Tuesday of next week as I know Certification is swamped right now. If you still don't hear anything from certification@vmware.com by Monday/Tuesday, send me a copy of that email, your details (the ones that you use for taking the exam) and I'll see what I can find out. I can be reached at lbourque@vmware.com

Thanks for covering for me various and assorted colleagues. Josh pointed this string out to me. I'm shocked that you would be receiving 30-day notices! Could someone please provide me a PDF or screen shot or something that shows this so I can follow up? That would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again. Randy

Congrats! Out of curiosity, what was your number? I've heard rumors that they've stopped giving out numbers in the 2000-3000 range and were matching VCP numbers now... was curious if that was true. I'm still waiting on mine.

Thanks! I just sat the DCA exam last week, so I think it'll be a while before I get the official report, but I'll let you know. DCD is next month. Smiley Happy
