I passed on Dec 27 with an 84. I had anticipated a score in the 70's, so I was pleased.
I don't know what the scoop with the published data on the time you have is. I got 2 hours, not 90 minutes.
Regards, Guy

I could not find a reference either to "90" or "120" (as in minutes) on their page:

Did anybody?
That sucks. What are they doing? Changing the running time of the exam every week!!??

About a month ago the page at Sun that describes the new exam did indeed say 90 minutes. I've got a printout of it. As of now there is *no* mention of time. Don't know when this changed.

Congratulations Guy
I wrote on Dec 14th and only had 90 minutes ... could've used an extra half-hour. I checked the site back around the 21st since someone had reported a change to 2hrs, and guess what ... it did say 2hrs! Maybe they can't make up their minds!

Jane - You'll be famous because you took the 90 minute version!
I felt very relaxed as soon as I saw 120 min. (a surprise).
The instructions for the exam I took did indicate up front the new format for multiple choice questions (e.g. "pick two"). This was good/bad I thought. There was one question where it said "two" and I thought "three" was the answer. (Can't do that).
Anyway, congratulations!!!
Guy
