      ive given vca6-dcv exam 4 times and each time after thorough studying. I am very sure all my answers are correct and was expecting a score of 400 at least. But all the 4 times my score remains 284 or 290. Which doesn't makes any sense? I strongly believe there is some issue somewhere? Is there any negative marking for incorrect answers or taking a long time to reply to questions even though you don't exceed the overall 75 min time limit?


      there is seriously some issue somewhere as I know my answers are correct and would yield me a minimum of 400 worst case

          You only get positive marks, and the scoring is done when either you finish the exam or the time runs out.


          So, it seems you're not getting enough items correct to get the points needed to pass.

            I doubt that's the case. You could always email certification@vmware.com and ask them to investigate your result.

              I have the same Problem!


              I took the exam twice and unfortunately I failed again. I only had 268 points in the second exam and I also have the feeling that Pearson VUE system does not check the exam correctly.


              Today I received the following feedback from certification@vmware.com which I cannot believe this is true...

                  Same here. I took this exam twice and didn't pass either one(290 on both attempts). I hold multiple VCAs, VCPs, and VCAPs. I felt confident on over 90% of my answers on this exam and still didn't pass. Not going for it again. Its either poorly worded or the "correct" answers are not accurate.
