Hello,

I saw different threads (from 2009) on different passing scores for the exam. Is it 42% or 68%?

Thanks

42%. Sun is just too lazy to update websites that contains wrong information.

I don't know whether that's true or not, but there is difference between exam CX-310-231 and CX-310-230 passing score

Yes, and it would be very strange if passing scores are different because for Sun's exams, passing a beta is equivalent to passing the real exam.

You can ask Sun to correct the web pages. Many guys have passed the exam already and their scores are lower than 68%, they score reports say "PASSED" which I trust more than Sun's website.
This is not the first time Sun's website contains wrong information, because they COPY-And-PASTE but forgot to modify some information.
