Check the link. It says Java 2 Platform. One of my friend told me that it is 70%. but when i came to javaranch I find it is 61%. I thought rule must have been changed. But this is really surprising?? Anyone why is it so ?? ------------------ Regards Ravish

I agree it ismost likely the old exam. You can always send an email to Sun and ask them and point out that there site is incorrect. Or you might want to post this to the results forum, I'm sure someone there has recently taken it in India and can give you a definitive answer.
