Passed SCJD

Hi everyone,

I just got email from Sun this morning that I passed the SCJD.

I finished everything on 5/21/2010, and around 7/21/2010, I sent them email to ask the result. However, I got the same request to resend the Jar file, which was disappointing. After sending the file again, on 8/9/2010, they informed me the result.

However, it seems that they do not provide the numeric score right now:

Congratulations! You have passed the Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform certification. You are among the elite 1% of certified Java professionals who have gone on to achieve the Sun Certified Developer for the Java 2 Platform certification.

You have received a passing score. Passing grades do not receive a score, just the pass. A failing grade will receive section level scoring so that a candidate may isolate the area of failure and resubmit their assignment. Numeric scores are only provided on failures.

I am wondering are there anybody passed the exam recently who also got their scores?

BTW, how do you understand the "1% of certified Java ...."? Is this a generic template letter, or does it really mean the percentage?

Anyway, it is good news, although I have to wait for two and a half months.

I want to thank you all you help.

Good luck to everyone.

Congratulations Yu!

Regarding the scores: since the acquisition of Sun by Oracle they don't give a numeric score, just a pass/fail grade. If you fail you'll get a numeric score (otherwise you wouldn't have any clue what went wrong ), so unfortunately you'll never know if you passed with the bare minimum or you passed with a perfect score and that's for Oracle (in my opinion).

And for your 2nd remark: very few people do the SCJD certification, certainly if you compare it with SCJP. SCJP is of course the most popular Java certification, and SCJD will be one of the least popular ones. But if it's really 1% I don't know at all
