Hi All,

Just wanted to hear people's opinion on whether I am ready for the real exam SCJP6.
I have done all Whizlabs tests 1,2,3,4 and my score respectively is: 79%,82%,75%,71%
and today I finally sat the final exam and got 72%, its not great but thats what it is.
I am finding it hard to get time out of work and family and realised that i had gone 2 weeks
without any preparations.... I dont want to leave it too long as I am losing what I already know.
So, I am thinking of taking it. The exams all had 72 questions, i know the exam has changed recently
to have just 60 questions.

What do you think, am I ready for it?

Also, is there partial marking in the real exam, so if you get 1 out of 2 multiple choices right for a question
do you get 0.5 mark credit for it?

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Thanks.

Understand why you got the questions wrong. Once you've done that, you're ready.

No there is no partial marking. Also your score looks fine to me. You can go for the real exam. Best of luck

Wow i say you are more than prepared......these scores from one of the toughest mocks are truly amazing. You definitely have a firm control of the language so why waste time. Go for it and be cool. It doesn't matter whether it is 72 or 60 questions.
