How to calculate the score (Mala Gupta's Mock exam)?

Hello everyone,
sorry for the banality of the question but I would be sure to properly calculate my score in the final examination of Mala Gupta's book. The total number of responses to be marked as correct is 139, I've done 122. This equates to 87%, is that right?

Your mock exam has 90 questions, just like the actual exam. You answer a question correct and receive 1 point or you don't and receive 0 points (also like the actual exam). You get also 0 points for a partially correct answer (e.g. you selected 2 correct options, but there were 3 correct options to select). Again that's like the actual exam. So you'll end up with a score on 90. If you score 80/90, you have scored 88.89% and passed the exam.

SCJA, SCJP (1.4 | 5.0 | 6.0), SCJD

Thanks for the clarification.
I read another question like mine but I wanted to be more secure (my English is not good).
I double-checked the answers: 17 wrong. My score drops dramatically to 81%.
Thanks again for your time.

But still almost 20% above the passing score of 63%

eheheh....you are right! But when I saw changing minimum score from 77% to 63% I thought Mala Gupta's mock exam is much easier than the real one...

From what other users who already took the exam and shared their experiences, that's definitely not the case. No need to just keep !
