I am a certified SCJP 1.4 programmer and would like to upgrade my certification to SCJP 1.6. Can I directly appear for SCJP 1.6 upgrade exam by skipping SCJP 1.5 upgrade exam ?

If I appear and pass SCJP 1.6 upgrade exam what certificate I will get ?Will the certificate say that I am a SCJP 1.6 professional ?

You can do the upgrade exam if you have any previous SCJP certificate, so you do not have to do the SCJP 5 upgrade first, you can directly do the SCJP 6 upgrade if you are already SCJP 1.4 certified.

Yes, the certificate will say you are SCJP 6 certified.
