I think I will find it out when I finish the test...
But beforehand, still feel curious..
Those who attended Sun's beta tests before, can you tell me what the test report looks like? Does it give you how many questions you answered correctly?

Thanks in advance...

Yes Tong,
You do get a score report as in other certifications but it is a little delayed.Almost takes 2 months to find out whether you have passed or failed.You will not get the report immediatley afterthe exam.

In addition, you will not really know how many questions you have answered correctly, even you got your report.

For example, in SCWCD 1.4 beta, we had to answer 163 questions, however, when we got the report, the total np. of questions answered are 70 only. Thus, the score is based on those 70 selected questions.

Well...
1) Based on what criteria Sun will pick up the ones from your answers?
2) How do you know which test objective area is your weak or strong?
3) What is the real passing score?

1) Based on what criteria Sun will pick up the ones from your answers?

Based on the results, and comments from the beta testers. I guess only SUN knows the detail, but they wont let us know.


2) How do you know which test objective area is your weak or strong?

Just like offically released tests, the score report gives a breakdown % on each test objective.


3) What is the real passing score?

The real passing score is the score that declared by SUN. For example, SCWCD 1.4 is 62% while SCMAD is 55%.

Which certification kit? Can't be for SCDJWS right, since the beta isn't even over yet.

Why?

The passing rate for SCJP 1.4 is much more lower. Just 52%!
