I've never been specifically asked what I got on the exam. For the most part, just being able to say that you're certified is enough. Seldom do companies care what you actually scored, just so long as you passed.
I wouldn't worry about it too much. Congrats on passing, though!

I'm very happy now.
I was very stressed on test day.
Thanks Corey,

Congratulations, Isaias !
Don't worry 'bout score-you're now SCJP !
I ask administrators to forward this message to Certification Results forum.

Hmmm, it sounds like in this case 61%=100%
In US half of Human Resources people will not even know what SCJP is. So if they read in job requirements "n years of Java", you might as well be certified by Scott McNealy and for all they know you don't qualify. If however, you happen to fly under their "watchfull" radar and get to an interview with techie, then 61=100, unless their techie is a REAL DORK (in which case you wouldn't want to work with him anyway). But what he might appreciate is that you ARE certified.
It might also happen that company you are interviewing with actually has IT-savvy HR folks. I found that in this case the company is usually worth considering to work for, and anything to help your case will do. Gladly, in this case 61=100 rule will also apply.
My 5 cents
