For some reason, I can not find the answers to these questions. I went thru the entire IBM Certification site, and thru all the links here on JavaRanch. It must be somewhere.
Question 1.
I know the XML exam is for 90 minutes, and has 57 questions. However, what is the passing percentage required? Where is the link to IBM's site that has this info?
Question 2.
If I fail on the first try, are there any requirements for re-taking? For example - is there a time limit that I am required to wait? Where is the link to IBM's site that has this info?
thanks!
Kevin Thompson

There seems to be no offical policy on wait time between test retakes. I know of atleast one guy who took the 141 test one week after failing.
Also there is nothing mentioned in the IBM test process site

The minimum percentage required to pass is 65%.
I failed the exam in July 25th but I'll try again in August 7th.
