Today I gave the exam for OCJP 6 and got 60%,just failed by 1%(passing score was 61%).
I prepared by giving k&b mock exams and certpal exams and score well in both.Don't know what is going wrong.
I am thinking of writing it again but right now very disappointed.

There is nothing to worry. Just give it another shot. Do a lot of practice questions on those topics that you were not strong at the moment. As you practice again, you will become proficient. It is the proficiency that you should aim for.

Failure is just the path to success, but you only have to pursue the path.

Hi Anishashu, tough luck with the result. It can be very frustrating to fail by just 1%. If you give the exam again I'm sure you'll clear the exam. So just give it another shot

If you want to do more practice than you can. But i think you have to review all your previous mock exams and find out "which topics are difficult(if any) for you to understand?" and "what problems have you faced during exam, if any?"...If you will get the answers than i think you are ready for another shot...

Is %age printed on certificate?

No. Score is not printed on certificate.

However, a good score always looks good

All the best!

Don't get disheartened. from what it seems(as you have said that you have got good scores on mocks and certpa) that you have commiited some silly mistake while attempting the questions. maybe it was the exam pressure or you were too in haste that you overlooked some of the aspects of the questions. for e.g. maybe you overlooked access modifiers, or scope of the variables, those little mistake we make. i'm pretty sure you would had got the good score if you were in your home giving the real exam as mock. last but not the least, as others have said, don't get dejected. do as much mocks as you can and above all find out what went wrong. where were the pitfalls.

Thank you all for your motivation.
I was thinking about it that I only gave certpal mocks and k&b mocks totaol 5 mocks and get 60 % in real exam.I guess preety decet score with that kind of preparation.
But now I am gonna purchase Enthuware + Download Examlab to be 100% sure that I am ready.

Tough luck Anishashu but you have great spirit. Just go for it and be calm and relaxed this time. About the mocks, just go through Examlab and K&B's exam. Examlab is the toughest mock there is.
