Does the exam also focuses on to predict "unreachable codes"?

Hello friend,
In SCJP 1.4, there won't be any question regarding unreachable code. I am not sure about the SCJP 5.0 exam.
I finished the 1.4 exam last month and there were no questions on that. Further, i took some mock exams and didn't find any questions on unreachable code.

I would not be so sure. Just because one candidate gets no question a topic, does not mean every candidate gets no such question.
