HDPCD Horton certification. #pig task

In practice exam they wanted us to store the result of a pig script in a particular location. For the first run it is works fine but throws a error in second run.(The evaluator who will be running our code will get an error). Did such issues taken care during actual exam.

@Anshu Kumar - this is not a concern that you need to have on the exam. In order for a task on the exam to be marked as correct, you must have already executed your code and the output must exist in HDFS. If the desired output folder specified by the task instructions is not in HDFS, then that task will be immediately marked as wrong.

Do not worry about how the evaluator grades the exam. Focus on generating the desired output by carefully following the task instructions, making sure that you run your code, and making sure your code generated the desired output.

Is there any cutoff for this exam like 70% or 80% to pass the exam?

The number of tasks is subject to change at any time, as is the passing score. Right now the exam has 7 tasks and you must complete 5 successfully to pass.
