All,

I have a question:

I though that the pass mark was 320...I scored 343 but my grade is F. Am I missing something?

Have I failed?

Grade: F
Score: 343
Comment: This report shows the total 1.4 SCJD points that could have been awarded in each section, and the actual number of points you were awarded. This is provided to give you per-section feedback on your strengths. The maximum possible score is 400; the minimum to pass is 320. General Considerations (maximum = 100): 99 Documentation (maximum = 70): 69 O-O Design (maximum = 30): 20 GUI (maximum = 40): 31 Locking (maximum = 80): 44 Data store (maximum = 40): 40 Network server (maximum = 40): 40

Hello,
maybe the essay exam?
(this point is specially worrying me because of the language)

Maybe, I don't know how though - since the questions were on my project, I can't have got them "wrong". I've sent an email to sun...I'll wait and see what they have to say.

Did you possibly do something that was against the spec? I recall seeing in the instructions that some things may constitute automatic failure. If that's the case they probably scored the sections to give you an idea of how you did on the implementation, but failed because of a spec violation. Just a thought...

When did you submit you assignment?

As far as I know, it is a very rare occasion, score indicated passing, and didn't say automatic failure, but still F?

Hi Christy,

This has happened on a couple of other occassions - on at least one occassion we thought it might be that the initial result is marked as 'F' before any score is entered, then when the score is finally made available someone didn't change the 'F' to a 'P'.

According to your score you have passed (congratulations ), and I suspect that when you get the answer from Sun they will confirm your passed status.

Regards, Andrew

Any idea why you lost points on locking ?

I've no ideas why I lost points on locking...I'll have to investigate. I think a lot of people got this 44/80 score, so we're all probably making similar mistakes.

You're right 44 or 80 are the two main scores for locking.

Did your delete, update and unlock methods take a lockCookie in their signature ?
