Are there any statistics available on the results of the SCJP exam? i.e.
How many people pass / fail; what's the average score?
In particular, what's considered a score worth bragging about on your resume?

some people don't put the score. Knowing that you're certified is enough. My opinion is more thatn 70% is a good score. But the idea here is to pass the exam no matter what

Hi,
You may also want to check out our recently released SCJP 1.4 score comparison utility. It also highlights the "Java experience: number of years".

Also, do post your score.
Best wishes
