I appeared for beta 1.4, as most of us here...but just can't make it.
I'm surprised I had scored above 80-100% in all the mock tests listed on mahaanna's site.
I just don't know what went wrong.
But now I want to start all over again...I'm determined to succeed, thats it!
How to make sure that now i'm ready for the exam, as even mock scores have illuded me once..though it was beta & i think beta was very much tougher that all the mocks I have appeared.
Would the real 1.4 be that tough?

Don't take it too hard vinita...
Failing is sometimes part of the learning process. With determination, will and hard work you are likely to be happier next time Work hard, and drop by to ask/answer questions sometimes, and you will succeed next time...
moving this to the result forum...

Hi Vinita,
Don't be too tight about yourself...the usual exam is for 61 questions/2 hours, but the beta was for 161 questions/4 hours, and it was really a pain to the skull.
I myself have failed (36% -- I got 0% in Garbage Collection but 100% in The Collections Framework ), and I look forward to the return match.
Ex Animo Java!
