Today, I cleared part 1 exam with 93% score. I earlier cleared the part 1 with 60% score but was not satisfied with the score and went for another attempt. The first attempt was through Prometric. I was able to observe few changes in the test pattern which are listed below:
  • There were no drag and drop questions
  • The final report shows in which sections you answered incorrectly
  • The final report doesn't show objective wise percentage


  • OCPJP

    Interesting, I think I've heard that you shouldn't/cannot retake the exam once you pass it.

    Could it be an issue due to prometric data migration? Probably if the first attempt was via pearson and you passed and again you attempt via pearson, it may not be allowed??

    I'm not really sure why you would want to retake the exam if you passed the first time, unless it was for a different version and you had to or you have lots of spare cash and a lot of time on your hands!

    I neither have spare cash nor time. There were many factors but the primary one is that my company sponsored the second attempt .
    Just brushed up my subject knowledge and my line manager was also impressed with the score.
     
    It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
