Hi,
I had cleared SCJP with 87% in Nov 2005.
On saturday, I failed scwcd exam . I had never thought that I'll be fail in Exam.I got 42 answers correct and scored only 60% while passing is 62% (43 correct answers).

I reffered HFJS twice.On Net,I had taken a lot of mock Exams in which I used to score above 70%.In HFJS mock Exam I got 55%.
I faced a lot of Multiple choice questions and Drag n drop questions in real Exam also a question on Ejb DD entry ....
At the start of Exam I had been asked to answer survey questions like Strong or Intermediate or New on sections.

My query is- Does these survey quetions affect coming real exam questions?
In servey I had mentioned mostly Intermediate on topics.

Now when can I re-appear for the same?
Plz answer my query and any suggestions would help me for my next attempt.

The survey has no impact on the questions you'll receive (otherwise everybody would reply 'novice' ) This is used by Sun to evaluate how hard/easy the exam was.

I think that you'll have to wait two or three weeks before reappearing.
However, you should not hurry and focus on your weak points before trying again.

Good luck.
