They are thinking about turning the SCJP into an 'adaptive' test but (1) haven't decided yet (2) promised to give 6 months notice if they do make the change.
Hope that helps.

I have taken a couple of adaptive tests on Microsoft topics. What happens is that the test has different categories and the tests adapts to whether you got the last test right or wrong. If you got it right, then you get a harder question. If wrong, and easier question. The determines what your level of competency is in each area.
So if you answer correctly the hardest question in that category, then it moves to the next category.
So the result is that once the adaptive test determines that you are going to pass the test, the test ends. So the test can be shorter.

Does this mean that those who have passed will have to be recertified ???
