yesturday i wrote SCWCD exam.
i got 68% short of two corrects.
when i saw at how much time left,there is 6 min left and
i am left with 11 questions and 4 to review back.

i have wrong select three easy API questions.

but i have the confidance that i can make 80% anytime.
when can i retake the exam.there should be any time gap rule? or i can take immidiately.

You have to wait at least two weeks.

Better luck for the next attempt, 2 weeks shouldn't be a huge gap. Use it efficiently for your preparations.

Sudheer, sorry to here about your near miss, and you should be comended for having the bravery to share your experience. It makes a refreshing changed to all the "I got 115%" type posts

Do you have an idea why you ran out of time, as I usually find Sun quite generous with their exam times. However I guess that depends a lot on what questions they throw at you, and whether the exam is in your native language.

Good luck in retaking, and with two weeks to go it may be worth investing in an exam simulator (Enthuware or Whizlabs) to practice pacing yourself to ensure you have enough time for each question.

Rufus.

firsti tought 2 hours would be enough,that mu mind set caused all damage.
i am not careful about time managing.
i just had a look at API,I wrongly selected some unexisting methods, or methods in wrong classes.,realm realated to authorization.

thanks every body..

Dear Sudheer,

Dont ever give up what you have done so far, remember you have a dream of being SCWCD5.0 certified. And you tried it, and you failed. But it doesn't mean that you can't do it. It means that you need to try a little more.You are already a sucessful person, because you have a dream, people who do not have a dream, do not have much!. So keep it up and post the happy ending of this story.

Good Luck My Friend.

Ranil

Hello sudheer,
Don't be discouraged. I have a friend who failed the SCWCD exam. He also had 68% marks for his first attempt. He did not give up his goal. In his second attempt he got 98% marks. So work hard and try again. I am sure you will be able to get more than enough marks next time. All the best!
