After test question

I took the SCJP test last Saturday, and I have a question about it.
Does it change slightly its difficulty from one year to another? Some people have commented that it becomes a little harder every year.
I got 80%, but expected a little better.

Thanks a lot,

According to my knowledge scjp1.4 is not changing it toughness less.but toughness level of scjp1.4 differs from scjp1.2.

Rumor has it the test has become increasingly difficult. Not surprising since they need to offset the availability of simulated test questions. I suspect that if you got 80% you comprehend almost 100% and overlooked something. That is in fact the point of the certification: if you past you are competent with virtually all of the material, wrong answers notwithstanding.
I agree. Here's the link:
