Bah. With the problems I was having, I'll be lucky if I break 50%.

Hmmmmmm ..... I am always hopelessly optimistic about things in life. I expect to score somewhere between 75% to 80%. I won't be suprised either if i fail the exam

I was among the earlier batch of testers who wasn't in time to know about the test extension notification.
So I guess my range would be around 60-75%.

So much for my hoping the cut-off for passing will be 42.
Personally, I think the cut-off will probably end up in the high 50's to low 60's. Seems to be about the median for Sun's exams.

Even if a candidate makes mistakes only in 10% of questions in beta (90% correct is awesome), if all those questions are going to be counted, it may result in FAIL status. Assuming that the actual exam would have 50 to 70 questions, 19 mistakes translates to 62 to 73% correct. I expect the pass percentage to be between 60 and 68%. No Beta candidate can claim that he/she could review the answers to their satisfaction.. Something tells me that for all but the truly brilliant, it is touch and go....

I may have scored about 50%. I hope they will make the passing score at around that given the short notice and the pressure to register at the earliset date ( how foolish of us who have taken the exam on the first few days thinking it will be over in no time).

I was one of the unfortuneate ones to take the exam in the 2nd week, and also faced the out-of-memory problem which led me to skip about 10-12 dnd questions, but i also hope against hope to pass, while in reality it may be a miserable result
