Greetings,

I have some basic question about SCJP 1.5 exam.


1. How many questions are on the exam?
2. Are those questions of multiple or single choice?
3. Are there negative points for bad answers?
4. Are there some kind of notes on the certificate, depending on the gained score?
5. What is the time limit?


For further questions I'll assume that the exam is of multiple choice.


6. Is there a partial score for a single point answered correctly in one question? I mean, if there is a question with 5 possible answers, do I get some points, if I will answer 2 of them correctly and 3 of them incorrectly?

7. Are points awarded only when all points in the question are answered correctly?

8. Are there extra points awarded when every single point of one question is marked correctly? I mean, if there is a question with 5 possible answers, and I will answer all 5 of them correctly, do I score for every answer, plus I score for a whole question answered perfectly?

Welcome to JavaRanch!

I think most of your questions are answered in our SCJP FAQ.

For each question, your answer will be either correct or incorrect. There are no negative points, no extra points, and no partial points.
