Thanks to the excellent Head First Java, the Sun Certified Programmer and Developer book and my housemate (who gave me 3 large-scale projects to practise what I was learning), I passed certification this morning with 88%, despite not knowing what Java was in September....

However, I don't know whether I should write this on a CV, as I don't know how this compares with others. The exam seemed to be much easier than any simulator I have tried. I know several people who have scored in the eighties and nineties, and nobody who has scored below that. Should I put my 88% on my CV, or would it just be drawing attention to an average grade?

I think you don't need your percentage on CV. Some employers even don't know what exactly is SCJP. They're sometimes glad, that you have some certification.

Really, score doesn't matter.

With your certificate you get a small plastic card, which may prove it.
