I've been getting some confusion as to the score needed for passing the SCJP. Is it 71 or 61% I called Sun, they said 71, but people have been saying they passed with scores of 67 etc. I really need this cleared up, I'm taking it tomorrow!
Certification - Java[tm] Technology SUN CERTIFIED PROGRAMMER FOR JAVA 2 PLATFORM Purchase: Sun Educational Services Available at: Authorized Prometric testing centers Exam number: 310-025 Prerequisites: None Exam type: Multiple choice, short answer, and drag and drop Number of questions: 59 Pass score: 61% Time limit: 120 minutes Cost: US$150, or as priced in the country where the exam is taken
It's 61%. 59 questions, 2 hours time. Sun changed the test format in Fall 2000, added much more of those time-consuming code exhibits, but lowered the passing score to keep things on a comparable level. -- Chris (SCPJ2) NB. Not that you should aim at passing just over the line
