Dear Friends\
I want to know Is it Testing taking into account earliest test taking and latest taking into account.
Means Beta Starts on April 29 today and ends May 23
Let us say if it takes test April 29 is it any credit in the test evaluation procedure.
if take test at last day May 23 then will lose that Mark if anyone knows please clarify
since I have taken 2 tests at the last day, my feeling eventhough I have done well but I got failed
with regards
bala

Let's say
the passing score is 70%
tester A takes the exam on 04/29 and get the score of 70%
tester B takes the exam on 05/23 and get the score of 70%
It DOES NOT make any sense that the tester A gets certified and the tester B does not.
So in my opinion, use as more time as possible to make better preparation. Take it esay and No need to hurry at all!

Mr.Tory Chen
My question is As per your statement
Let's say
the passing score is 70%
tester A takes the exam on 04/29 and get the score of 70%- his total mark is 70+10(Earliest exam mark)=80
tester B takes the exam on 05/23 and get the score of 70%
is 70+0(since took the test last day)=70
so Sun put 75 marks as passing score
Then tester A gets assed
Then tester B gets Failed
this is my perception, this case looks like that, since I took Beta exams always last day, eventhough I did well got failed, also I am not sure
whether I have finished Sun Survey

I've never taken a beta before, so pls correct me if I'm wrong.
How did you actually knew that you did well enough to warrant a pass? Also, even though you might had scored a respectable score, it could be that a significant portion of testers did exceptionally well (much better than you did), hence you didn't pass?
Unless you could show that all those who did the beta earlier than you scored the same as you & passed.
So my hunch is that, it doesn't matter.

I am with the opposite feeling and result with you.
I took SCMAD beta on the last day (7 Mar) as well, and I feel I did it bad. Most questions seems new to me. But finally, I did get a pass!
Thus, I feel whether *did the exam well or not* is very subjective, which cannot be used to make claims to SUN.
