Hi,

I passed SCJP this saturday with 83%. Ya, ppl may say this is also a good percentage but i feel its not. I feel that i can do more and cud've done better. I feel i cud've cleared if i have taken a little late. Its fault in me that i gave the exam bit early. I thought of taking the test only if i start getting gud percentages in mock tests i thought. But somehow i felt to finish my exam early and took it.

Now i am confused wat to do next? I really feel like giving a retest too. Is it ok to give a retest though i passed? Or can i give scjp 1.5 or go for other certifications? What to do?

I am not able to accept myself to go for other certifications with this percentage in scjp. please guide me.

Anjana, congrats!
You've cleared the passing percentage with a wide margin to spare. The certificate only says whether or not you passed and not your % so don't think too much about it. If you're disappointed with your score that's too bad but I personally don't think you need to repeat the test with an 83%.
Go ahead and prepare for the developer's exam which is more respected than the programmer's exam and quit thinking about giving the programmer's exam again.

P.S. If you have $150 you don't know what to do with I can give you my mailing address.

Don't even think of retaking SCJP, you did excellently.
