When are the results of the beta exams due?



  • Hi,

    In München, I took both the beta exams. Now, I find myself in a situation where I am starting to seriously look for a new job. It would be good to know if I would be able to call myself a "Nokia Certified Qt Specialist". I plan to apply to Qt related jobs, and such a badge would be a real bonus on my CV I think. Any ideas when we can expect to hear the results? They told me at the desk "in december", but that's still a long month ahead of us :-)

    André

    P.S. Anyone looking for a Certified Qt Developer in the meantime? ;-)



  • I am too waiting for results. I have same information that results will be out in in December.



  • As Vladimir told "here":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewreply/9271/ results are planned to be before the end of the year.



  • Thanks, I missed that thread. But it does not bring me any closer. I guess I'll just wait out the long month of December then ;-)



  • Almost half way down the month! Results must be getting closer :-)



  • I am exactly in the same situatian as Andre. It would be a real help to get the results. Better today than tomorrow. But some things take their time to be evaluated....
    I hope though, a thread like this can speed it up :-)



  • +1. I have similar situation. Today is 22nd of December and still no results. So 25th of December is X-Mas. So I think, that if there are no results till 25th, then result will known only in new year.

    P.S. Whishing all a Merry Christmas and happy New Year!



  • mee too took the test, I was wondering what is cut off marks for c++ for Qt and Qt advance exam? Does any one knows? or will they decide the cut off marks on the basis of marks scored by participants??



  • From what I understood, the cutoff is still to be determined based on the scores and the comments of the participants, yes. I imagine setting that level is not easy to do. Still, I would very much like to hear the results right about now, but I am with you in your suspicion that we can probably only expect it in 2011.



  • We're all a bit eager about these results :-) But I think that we won't get them until January.



  • I would like to get a reaction for a knowledgeable Troll on this topic. Seeing our own offices empty out for the holiday season, I imagine it is not much different in Oslo or whereever the Trolls working on certification hang out. An update on the status of the Qt Specialist certifications would be welcome.



  • FWIW I logged into my Pearson account a few minutes ago and the status of the tests changed from "taken" to "pass". But I did not get any eMail or so, so I am still not 100% sure whether it is real or just some kind of system hiccup :-)



  • Very interesting! I don't have such an account (AFAIK, had troubles with that when taking the test at the last dev days too), so I can't check for myself!

    I guess: congrats!
    Did you take the advanced beta tests? If so, you are already a Certified Developer, so you have earned a badge for that at least. Ask MariusG how to get one.



  • I've checked my Pearson VUE account too and confirm that status was changed (I also have both adv exams with "pass" status). So official results notification is near? :)



  • Hey, the state has changed, that's good to know. So I think they finished the stuff and will send out the certificates :-)



  • If all goes well, I'll get some login info from Pearson soon, so I hope I'll be able to check my results too... Exciting!



  • Whoohoo! A good Christmas present :-)



  • Yeah indeed. I just checked and it seems that the results are checked in at Pearson Vue :-)



  • Yes! A pass for both the Advanced Widgets and the C++ for Qt exams. :-)

    Seems I can claim that "Nokia Certified Qt Specialist" badge. Nice way to end the year!



  • Hehe. We were counting the seconds here. Yes, there will be more badges coming. :)



  • Do you have more christmas presents for us?
    But I think, tomorrow you will also have days off, right?



  • No special plans for presents any more, I'm afraid. ;)

    Yes, we do have the day off tomorrow to decorate our trees, wrap the presents and slave in the kitchen (and the rest of the apartment in my case). At least, I'm done with all the shopping...



  • Yes! My status is "pass" for the two exams.



  • I was hoping for something a little more dramatic: pass.... not even the score... OK, it is better than fail :)

    I am still waiting for my t-shirt! They told me that I could get one only if I passed the test... Here you have it, I did :)

    So now back to the basics... at least I will get a nice badge under my avatar :)



  • Yes! My status is "pass" on two exams (also on the Qt Essentials :P) :D



  • When can we expect the certificates arrival?

    I think we should wait for the official email to arrive, after that the certificates should be printed then mailed to us.



  • Just got the official email. Cheers!



  • [quote author="peppe" date="1293554518"]Just got the official email. Cheers![/quote]

    Me too.... :)

    bq. If you did not pass the Qt Essentials exam yet, please consider this. The "Qt Essentials" exam is another pre-requisite for a higher designation in addition to the passed "Qualified in C++ with Qt" exam.

    Does it mean that you also need to pass the "essentials" in order to use the "Qualified in C++ with Qt" "designation"?



  • [quote author="fcrochik" date="1293555978"]Does it mean that you also need to pass the "essentials" in order to use the "Qualified in C++ with Qt" "designation"?[/quote]

    Yes, according to the "web page":http://qt.nokia.com/developer/learning/certification/qt-certification-advanced-exams the essential exam is a prerequisite for the advanced certification. As far as I understood, you can take the advanced exam first, but you are not a "Nokia Certified Qt Specialist" as long as you did not pass the essential exam.

    So here we go again.... :(

    I was planning on taking it anyway.... :)



  • Hey, cool, only the certificate is missing now.



  • Gerolf, certificate and new badge here :)



  • ok, sorry, 2 things are missing :-)

    Damn, I knew there was a ripoff...



  • Congratulation Andre and Milot for passing the Exam.

    Thanks buddy :D



  • I got the official email yesterday, but the celebration was finished before that :P



  • I got some notification e-mails on both exams telling me that I have passed both exams. The status at the pearson home page has also changed to "pass" for both exams. I hope we get the same printed out certificates like for the first certification soon :-)



  • Question to ones who passed both exams. What will you put into your CV? Just only "Nokia Certified Qt Specialist" or both certifications?
