I would like to share my experience on OCAJP exam.
With new test format i.e. 70 questions and 2 hours duration, many people commented on Thread its hard to finish on time, and at least 8 questions were left out unanswered, which kept my foot on toe during exam time.
I found that, as questions pass by it becomes easy i.e. easy questions are placed at last. I'm not sure if it is a consistent pattern.
Finally, my score was 78%, which was "ok" as i don't have prior development experience.
