Howdy ranchers!

does the written exam affect the total grade for the SCJD, or is it just a pass/fail-test in order to validate that it was you who has done the assignment?

Hi Andy,

The essay exam just questions a few of your decisions you made during your assignment. So you just have to describe what you did and why you did it. You can't fail on this test in my opinion. You will only fail because your locking mechanism wasn't meeting the requirements for example.
Don't be afraid of the written exam: if you did the assignment on your own, this exam will be a piece of cake.

Kind regards,
