One might say (and myself including), that I took the exam too early, but there was a pre-planned schedule I had to follow.

Wouter Jetta wrote:You might think that my motivation is low and that I am burning out on studying, but I am not. I really want to pass this exam.
I want to focus on a new approach and continue. I will pass the exam next time I take it and I want to pass it 75%+.

Wouter Jetta wrote:Additionally any advice on how to go from here is welcome!
I am not failing on one particular subject, I know a lot about everything but definitely not thouroughly enough.
One of the things I am considering is to study all the set rules by heart by subject. Being able to dream every single one of them, for example in leitner sort of learning style before attempting test exams again.

You didn't provide much details about your personal situation (e.g. prior Java knowedge) and your preparation. You only shared which study guides you are using and those are excellent to be well prepared for the exam.

Did you write code snippets during the studying process? Did you use an IDE or not?

So it's probably worth reading!

I want to enjoy my holiday but I also want to see if I can repeat some knowledge for at least 45 minutes a day during my holiday, so that I do not lose touch.
