Hey guys,
Just made the grade but it was not easy.

Declarations, Initialization and Scoping= 70%
Flow Control = 36%
API Contents = 85%
Concurrency = 40%
OO Concepts = 60%
Collections/Generics = 50%
Fundametals = 77%


Do you know if interviews ask how much you got in the exam when they ask about it?

Martin,

Congratulations and thank you for posting your grade and your individual scores. I hope I will as well as you did.

So everyone, isn't it the important thing to just pass the SCJP exam? Does the certificate have the grade on it and do employers ask and care about the grade?

Congratulations!


which exam did you take? you didn't specify. If you took 1.6 can you tell me how many questions you had, how much time and was it all multiple choice? I seen somewhere on this site that the passing score was 65% which is different from 58.33% specified on Sun's site.

Sorry chad i took the new 1.6 exam. I had 60 questions which i was surprised because all the other mock exams were 72. i had 3.5 hours and i used 2.5 hours of that. When i got the print out it said i got 60% and the passing score was 58%. that was not the certificate it was just to tell me my score int the exam.

I read Monu Tripathi post which was good. Here is a quote from him on scores:
One of the aims of learning should be that the information gained should become natural, a second nature (like your name). Once, you've given the exam and cleared it, what you scored hardly matters. You wont even get it printed on the certificate. What matters is whether or not you understood the concepts and are able to apply them or understand their applications in programs. There are people who are certified yet they dont understand the language and then there are people who know the language better without even having the certificate.
