Can any one let me know the weightage of overall questions (averagely) that come in the SCJP exam?
What is the avg. Percentage of these questions?I mean.what is the % of VERY EASY QUESTIONS?, EASY ONES,HARD ONES?..
I guess the VERY EASY and the EASY ones lay more stress on the SCJP Paper? Is that true?

As far as overall weighting of the questions each question has the same value - they are all worth 1 point.
On my test I would say that the majority (70%) were about average difficulty, 10 - 15% were easy and the other 15 - 20% were hard. I didnt find any really hard ones or extremely difficult ones.
Hope that helps

If each Question would take 1 point, then it should have 100 questions;am I right?
By the way passing is 61% then how many marks does the total paper have? i.e what is the total marks?

Do the math. You need to get 36/59 (61%) to pass. You are allowed to get 23 wrong answers.
