Hi guys....gave ocajp 7 yesterday and got 70 %.
I wanted to ask that is it a decent score?
and one more thing....i am a fresher and i am going to apply for job this year , so would telling the interviewer that i scored 70% in ocajp 7 leave a negative impression(that he scored less)?
Honest Replies please...

I wouldn't share the score. It doesn't matter whether it is a good or bad score. If the interviewer doesn't know about the exam, it *sounds* like a lower score. Because in school, a passing score is often 65%. As fara s Oracle is concrend this is a pass/fail exam so just say that you passed.

As far as the exam: It's not a great score, but it is a pass. If you plan to take the OCP, I recommend studying the OCA materials more because it is cumulative.

My CV mentions all the certifications I have, but none of them mentions the score I passed with. And none of the interviewers have ever asked for my score. So I would not mention the score, just say you are OCAJP7 certified. (If the interviewer would ask for the score, I would reply honestly)
