Hi everyone,

Does anyone know how the marking works on the exam?

I.e. are there half marks, or do you basically get a question right or you get the question wrong?

Any help much appreciated

Thanks and regards,

i think its Boolean Logic ...True or False ... null counts towards False!
For choose any 3 option ... choose all the 3 correctly to get a True

SCJP 6 83%

I thought this might be the case, but couldn't find any confirmation on the web.

Thank you for the information :-)

The SCJP exam questions are all or nothing. That's pretty much the same with all of the multiple choice exams.

You don't lose marks for a wrong answer, so every question should be answered, even if it's just a guess. Even the best of us guess at times.
