Passed with weird scores.

Just found my results on the certmanager site. A little bit confused by the scoring but it has a P next to it so I assume I've passed.

This report shows the total points that could have been awarded in each section, and the actual number of points you were awarded. This is provided to give you per-section feedback on your strengths.

The maximum possible score is 155; the minimum to pass is 124.

General Considerations (maximum = 10): 8
Documentation (maximum = 7): 7
O-O Design (maximum = 3): 3
GUI (maximum = 4): 3
Locking (maximum = 8): 4
Data store (maximum = 4): 4
Network server (maximum = 4): 4

Interesting. It looks like they are using a different scoring system now.

Nonetheless, it is in the win column!! So Congratulations, Paul!! You are finished!

Will you take the SCWCD exam next?

My score was also reported in that format; you should see the actual score (out of 400) listed on the initial results page, and on the detail page.
But in the detailed breakout, they apparently just truncated the last digit, so we cannot see the complete score.

I contacted Sun so they are aware of the problems.

I took and passed SCWCD on the same day I took SCJD. SCBCD is next but I'm going to take a few weeks break first.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
