Hello everybody,
I read in some posts that in SCJP exam sometimes people came across questions which did not have any valid choice. In this kind of situation what are we supposed to do? Should we not select any option?
Even in Marcus Greene exam no.3, he suggests not to select any option if none of the choices are correct.
Could you please let me know what you all who faced this situation did in the real exam?
I would really appreciate if you could respond as early as possible. I am apearing for exam tomorrow.
Thanks

Hi Seema,
The questions on the exam tell you how many correct answers there are. While some answers may seem ambiguous to you, and you might not think they are correct, I'm sure Sun has reviewed each question numerous times. Personally, it never entered my mind that Sun might make a mistake on a question. I think that if you start doubting Sun, you may get yourself in trouble on the exam. That's just my opinion though. But let me reiterate, each question tell you how many correct answers there are. Good Luck.

Hi Sean,
thanks for the reply and I hope what you are saying is right but I have read people saying that few q's didn't have valid answers.
Lets see if I get reply from one of those people before I go for my exam...
Thanks

Hi Seema,
Sun doesn't deduct marks for incorrect answers and it's just possible that while there may seem to be no correct choice, there really is. If that's the case you're better off making a best guess; it could be right

Hi seema,
If u believe me,i encountered two question's which had no right option's to choose initially i thought of leaving those question's without choosing any options.But in the end i ticked the options as a result i lost marks.I memeorize those two questions and i compiled at home and i did not get any answer right.I think Marcus advice is probably right.I think giving no right options also comes under a tricky part,to choose or not to choose,if u make the right decision u will get or loose marks.
