Hi ,

I want to appear for SCJP 5.0 since I am prepared for it.Is there any expiry date for the SCJP 5.0 exam since now the SCJP 6.0 has started?

Why do you want to go for an outdated certification?? The difference between SCJP 5 and SCJP 6 isn't much (checkout this). I would highly recommend you to go for SCJP 6. There is no date announced yet when SCJP 5 would be retired...

I agree with Ankit, appear for SCJP 6. Only a couple of topics are added in the new addition.

Best of Luck,
