What is the grade you need to pass the SCJP2 exam with to achieve distinction? I didn't even know there was such a thing?

Thanks for confirming this. I was curious because I read the post from that 14 year old kid in Turkey or wherever he was from, that passed with 98%, and a couple people said congrats on passing with distinction.
Phew!

Sure there is no such thing as a "Distinction" that is officially accredited by Sun. its just term, to point out the really good score "The Kid" has achieved. Its just a word of encouragement.
By the way the kid is from India
