Don't remove it from your resume. But don't highlight it as one of your strong points for being a good candidat because having that certification (or others) is not a good reason since far too many people have that certification and know little about programming other than just the language features and syntax. And that really doesn't help on-the-job.



Thanks Onkar I will consider your suggetions

Yes, and by really focussing on the 97% as a selling point, you could actually confirm that 'you think the job is just about language features and syntax'.

Just write in your resume: "SCJP5, August 2008, Score 97%." Dot. No more no less.

And do not mention it in the interview if the Human Resource person asking you questions does not start about it.
 
Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
