Do the test scores matter

I am getting ready to take the programmer exam. I was wondering if the test scores matter as long as you pass. Do the scores print on the certificate or on the cert manager?

People who reach certain (acceptable) level of standard (ie., pass % in our case, 52% for 1.4) in a particular field of study, may get certified. The range of knowledge (the overall %) depends on how good he/she is at that field. I think, in general it is good enough to be within the acceptable range. But please remember that the knowledge always counts and has its rewards. That's the motivation behind these certifications. So the above explanation holds true for all kinds of certifications. Any comments?

Thanks. Your right the knowledge does count as its own reward. I am paing 150$ to show what I know. I was just concerend that if I got a low score, the low score would reflect on the certification.

The score is certainly printed on the Examination Score Report you get from the Assessment Centre immediately (thank goodness) after the SCJP examination. Anyone know about the real certificate?
Anyway, whatever the score is: high, low, pass, fail you are more than welcome to participate on the JavaRanch!

The certificate does not have your score on it.
