After a dismal first attemptI finally passed with a score of 72.
I really do not know what to think. I thought that I had understood why I failed first time - namely that I had not presented it in the format approved by Sun. So I redid everything, scrupulously following the example in the Cade book. My class and sequence diagrams both did better, but the component diagram actually lost points!
So I guess I am not quite as good as I thought. I must have missed a few things. I think it must have been in the assumptions and in part 3, because my UML seemed fine (to me).
Anyway, I passed, which is the important thing. Especially as it is important for me in my job - like it should help me to keep on having one for some time.
I feel very admirative of those with scores in the 90s.
It would be interesting to know the profiles of those who take the exam: how many are have experience architecting web sites, and how many (like me) are more in the learning phase.
It would also be interesting to know the pass rate, though I suppose that is a Sun state secret. I guess those who pass are more likely to post the joyous news in the news groups than those who fail.
Good luck to you all, and many thanks.

Congrats!

And like everyone else is reminding you - a pass is a pass is a pass. A high score is nice, but it's not going to matter in the grand scheme..
