I�ve passed the exam yesterday with a 61% score, and I am very unhappy with it.
I was too nervous and I�m sure I coul�d have passed with a much better score(In mocks I was getting around 85%)
The question is....
Can I do it again???And if I do, do they consider my new score???

Well, but as my company and many folks in this forum said to me (when I passed SCPJ2 with a 67%)....
Whether you passed with a 61% or a 100%, the important thing is that you passed. And no one else will ever know unless you tell them the score.
And that's all that matters. Congrats on passing!

you are scjp now. that is more important rather than score. You show your flare in all the advanced topics like servlets , jdbc , jsp etc. & see what is the result ? Nobody is going to ask your marks I presume. Employer will see can you do the given task ? Isn't it ? So , don't worry about scores.
All the very best for the future. Hope to listen from you in near future with great news.

Hi Marcus, Congratulations on passing
You can always retake the exam and try for a higher score; I wasn't happy with my score originally either but it's really hurt pride The score is not on your certificate ... in the end I decided my time would be better spent working on the SCJD
Although one day I would like to re-take the SCJP .. ego is ego
