A possible reason to have different number of questions could be the type of Sun certifications the candidate already has.

Ashish that may be the reason.When you register
you need to mention your other sun certifications.
I have only scjp and scwcd certs.But exam duration is same for all. 183 questions !!! It's like doing 3 exams.

if difficulty level of qes. will be same then why difference of 23 ques.
23 ques means 15% more ques in same time.
Anyway, thanks to Sun Microsystems for giving opportunity to attend the exam for free of cost.

Hmmmmm... I do not know the exact reason for the difference, BUT, I DO know that it has nothing whatsoever to do with any other certifications. There are two possible explanations, and I will ask tomorrow to find out for certain, but here are the possible reasons:
1) It is just a typo, and only ONE of the numbers is correct.
2) There *are* several different forms of the beta exam, and although I would have expected them to be equal in number, it is possible that they are not. In other words, you are not all going to be taking an identical exam. This is a fairly large jump in numbers, though, so I might be a little surprised if this is the difference.
In any case, I'll find out tomorrow when everybody returns to work.
cheers,
Kathy

Hi Guys,
I think we all will have similar number of questions as there is number of questions are not associated with voucher number or name but the same number of questions from question pools are downladed for paper by prometric Test Administrator.So you don't have to worry either its 160 or 183 just a little difference of 23
