Hi,
I am trying to appear for the SCJP exam next month. I have a question reg. the actual exam itself. What will happen to the questions that has multiple correct answers (say 2)
1. and you selected 3 (the 2 correct ones and a wrong one!)?
2. and you selected 1 (just 1 correct answer)?
Is it considered as a wrong one? It seems almost in every mock exam I tried, these types of questions are tripping me. I will appreciate if anyone can clarify me with this.

Thanks
Vani

Both cases are counted as wrong. To summarize:
In questions that may have more than one correct answer (the questions with check boxes instead of radio buttons), you have to mark all the correct ones and none of the incorrect ones. Otherwise you get the whole question wrong.

I'll add that when I took the exam there were far more of these multiple-possible-answers than in the mock exams I took. Together with the fact that I was being more careful, I spent about 20 minutes longer on my first run through the actual exam than I did on the mock exams (which still left plenty of time to check over my answers).
 
No. No. No. No. Changed my mind. Wanna come down. To see this tiny ad:
