Yesterday I was taking the written exam and strangely I got only 4 questions asked. As far as I remember, on Sun�s official certification site it states that you are being asked 5 questions on the written examn, so I�m confused a little. Has there been anybody else who was also asked just 4 questions?

Fell lucky. Maybe the other dentist didn't show up.

I took the exam this morning and only got 4 essay questions.
When I got to the end of the last one and clicked "next" I got to review my questions and then end and that was it. No other sections, no more questions.
I spoke to the people at the test centre and they have lodged a comment on my record, and I have contacted Sun/Prometric through the CertManager website. I'm still waiting for an answer at the moment.
But you are not alone!

Don�t worry. Even I was asked only four questions, I this week received my results which stated a score of 153/155 - so it�s possible to pass even with only 4 questions asked.

I just heard back from Monica at Sun, she confirms that the exam has been changed to contain only four questions now:
Hello,
We apologize for the confusion. We recently removed one question from the essay
exam. There should only be four questions now.
Our Certification URL will be updated ASAP.
Regards,
Monica
