On 23rd December 2013 I joined SAP ABAP training at Atos india pvt. ltd., Mumbai and completed my training on 24th January 2014 under guidance of Mr. Harsha. after completion of my training I prepare for my certification exam and on 7th February 2014 I had given my exam and passed with 90%.
On 18th march 2014 after 40 days of certification exam I got mail from SAP AG
‘Dear Mr. Mehta,
We are sorry to inform you that, due to exam irregularities, we are forced to withhold your certification for the exam you took on Feb 7, 2014 at ATOS Mumbai. We are however happy to be able to give you the opportunity to retake the exam free of charge. Please contact our colleagues at SAP Education India to obtain a scheduled date for your retake opportunity.
We wish you every success with your retake.
Senior Director - Global Certification
I was shock after reading this mail, two of the batch-mates have not been issued re-examination who scored below 85%. We contacted SAP (India) personals via email and call but we have not been provided with any info as in why this action is been taken and they force us for re-examination after 2 months of certification exam without any server access by just remembering 4 ABAP books.
On 10th April 2014 I re-appeared for the exam and they played with us by setting up the test which is usually has to set for the SAP Experience professionals but not for the fresher’s like us. only 1 lady passed that exam with just 1% above passing marks who has working experience in industry and rest all other 17 students are failed in re-exam.
Also then 3 students who were failed with us were provided certificates even though they were failed in 2nd attempt with us.
The reason stated to us was exam irregularities which is still (after 6 months ) not been explained to us.
Also as per SAP India, when I asked to them about the scenario they just reply that its our bad luck. So does SAP Certification is calculated on luck basis.
If it was not the test takers mistake then how can SAP AG or SAP India blame us and to add to it they have takes 6 months and still we have no Certificates in hand. My whole career is at stakes.
Now again I am being forced to give exam, I am full of confidence that I can crack the exam as per my preparation but I am lacking trust.
Also I am unable to understand why the people who scored below 85% which were my batch mates were issued the certificates. Is scoring high above 85% is crime in SAP.
With no proper reason for 6 months, i am totally frustrated. The next batch after me from my center also scored above 90% so why were they not put to re-test. For us the 2nd attempt was like a professional level paper in which some questions were out from the books that were provided to me.
I still request SAP to release my Certificate, as they have released three of the batch mates from my center even though they failed as Ms Susan Martin herself confessed that the 2nd attempt paper was tough and totally practical based with 6 months of long time and they were favoured so why not me ?
I am getting company offers but I am just short of my certificate thus i have the necessary skills need for the Certificate and I deserve it as I have already cleared my exam.
Also SAP India says that every decision is taken by SAP AG. So I also request SAP India to take a stand and release my Certificate as we had already had a conversation several times.
