I have just checked the Oracle website and it states that Passing score for Java Standard Edition 6 Programmer Certified Professional Exam is 61%.

The passing score written on coderanch under SCJP FAQs is 58.8%.

Can anyone confirm please whats the actual passing score? I am taking the exam on 15th June.

That is incorrect. It is 61%. I know because I just gave it last week.

The exam number has changed but it is practically the same.
Some of the parts objectives were dropped(Serialization and Object.wait() .notify() notifyAll())
K&B book is still the best for the exam, so I do recommend it.

If you need some more info on the topic I think that there are plenty of threads in this forum.

Whether it is 58% or 61% is not really a big deal. Earning an extra 3% never really hurt anyone

As for the objectives, the recent ones dropped the topics noted by Stoian. They are still worth learning IMHO

SCJP 6 articles - SCJP 5/6 mock exams - More SCJP Mocks

But uhm...

Is it really true, that serialization, notify(), wait(), is dropped, and will not come up in exam?
