Hi Ranchers,
Do you know of somebody who scored 100% in SCJP exam??? Well, if not, is it attainable?!

Wait, Nazmul will show up
100% is definitely attainable, although some people claim that it is not because Sun is putting wrong questions on purpose in the exam

I heard there are actually 61 questions, 59 of each will actually contribute to the score.
Two are for SUN's own research purposes.
Has anyone heard of this?

Where the h*&^ did you hear that The questions are numbered from 1 to 59 so if there were really 61 questions, people would notice it and report it here, but I admit that it is the first time I hear that...

Hi Val Pecaoco
Its Nazmul from Bangladesh. I scored 100% on 31st Jan-2002. I know some other people who also scored 100%, 1 from Zhang (China) and other from India (forget his name). I heard 5/6 100% scorer.
So ofcourse its attainable.
And thanks Valentin....for still memorizing me...

OK, it's official:
...Sun is putting wrong questions on purpose in the exam.

is a myth.
Thanks guys. I guess I'll have to make "It's 100% or bust!" as my battlecry. I think every SCJP2 aspirant too

I work for a guy who sat alongside Bjarne Stroustrup on the C++ standards committee and who is mentioned in the acknowledgements in the Gang of Four book... and he scored 98% on the SCJP. One of the best Java/OO guys around and even he didn't get 100%. Guess it's possible, but very difficult. I got 84%, being just a mere mortal.
