I was just curious if sun publishes the statistics
for it's exams.
Such as for SCWCD:
How many certification tests are attempted.
How many certified WCD's exist at this point in time.
What are the average scores?
What is the distribution of the results(how common is 96% etc.)?
How many people have actually scored 100% ?
I'm just rambling but you get the Idea..

I don't think Sun will publish this. The certification exam is to test people's understanding of the technology, not to test the people's ability of taking exams. So I think it does't make sense to publish such statistics. What's the difference between 95% and 100%?

Also the content and level of difficulty is adjusted. For ex., in SCPJ2 there was 71% pass-level and started to be 61% but the level of difficulty is claimed to be preserved
