Hi,

Is the duration for SCJP1.5 increased? I called up NIIT centre and asked for the timings, and they said its 3 1/2 hours? Is the question pattern changed? I checked SUN website and it said, 72 questions and passing score is 43 for 175 minutes.

Can someone let me know the correct pattern for SCJP1.5

Sachin.

Hi,
I took the exam in Jan and I had three and a half hours... It had changed sometime before Jan I guess... And ya, there were 72 questions and the pass percentage was 59%...(43 right answers..) There was no change in the pattern...

Regards,
Vishwa

Thanks for your reply Vishwa.

Is the exam pattern has changed? What is the maximum no. of questions and what is the passing score? Has it become more tough? Why they have increased the timings?

Why it is not officially posted? Any idea?

Sachin.

Hi,

<just edited the post above..>

The exam hasn't become any tougher... The questions are just like before... Isn't that good news?

Regards,
Vishwa
