ReTaking the OCPJP exam

Hi Folks,

Just curious, if a candidate were to attempt the exam more than once before passing, will it be mentioned in the certificate or any other accompanying documentation, that this is the nth attempt? Hope someone can advice. Thanks.

Certification only says that which exam a candidate has passed, and on what date. That's it. It does not contain score, or number of attempts etc.

The only place you can find this is (probably) certification history (which is available online to you).

I hope this helps.

Hi John,

I'm just throwing a guess, but I think if you pass, you pass. I think the certificate will come out marked passed and the actual scores on the result slip.
