hello,

just wanna ask if you just passed the scjp with the passing mark. Do you need to take the exam again to get a higher mark? or its okay with the 52% pass mark?

thanks!

Hello Mel,

It's really up to the individual. 52% is considered a pass in SCJP 1.4. Some may not be satisfied with the score and would like to give another try. Whereas for others, score is trivial to them. Afterall, a pass is a pass. Furthermore, the certificate received does not have the score printed on it. To me, it's more important to find out which section I've done poorly and brush up that area.

Nay, we won't be told which question(s) answered wrongly. However, the score report does provide a percentage scored in each section. For example, if one answered all the Thread questions correctly, one would get 100% for Thread section.

yelo
thanks for the reply.

I saw that you can view your scores online through certmanager from sun? so it is still possible for other people to view your scores?

How does a prospect employer verify that you have taken certification? is there a way?

There're a few options:

1. certificate
2. score report received at the test centre
3. use the "Publish Certification" feature in CertManager database

I think #1 and #3 are good enough to prove that you've indeed passed the exam.

Hello Deshdeep,

Passing SCJP with borderline score (e.g 52%) is still considered a pass. Whether retaking the exam so as to get a higher and better score is up to the individual to decide.
