Next monday I'm taking the SCEA5 upgrade exam.
However, while reading the SUN certification site I got confused when looking at the pass scores.
The pass score for the normal part I (so 310-052) is 57%
http://www.sun.com/training/catalog/courses/CX-310-052.xml states: Pass score: 57% (37 out of 64 questions)
Thats all good, if you calculate the percentage, you will see that 37 out of 64 is indeed 57% (rounded)
The exam I'm taking is another exam, since its the upgrade so its: 310-053
http://www.sun.com/training/catalog/courses/CX-310-053.xml states this: Pass score:
70% (29 of 48 questions)
First : why is the pass score for the upgrade exam that high compared to the normal part I?
And most importantly: what is going on with that percentage? --->
29 out of 48 is 60% and NOT 70%
60% seems more reasonable and more close to the normal part I
It seems that there is a higher chance that their is a typo in the percentage on their site (so 60% instead of 70%) then a typo in the number of correct questions: if you take 39 out of 48 you get 81%.
I was thinking it could had something to do with the individual weigth of the questions or so, but then again, if you check the percentage of the normal part I , its correct: 37 out of 64 is indeed 57% (while 39 out of 48 is not 70%)
Can anyone confirm that it is indeed 60% rather then 70% ?
