and what part of the test proves immunity?

negative antigen and positive surface antibodies = hbv- and immunity

negative antigen and positive surface antibodies = hbv- and immunity

still immune,  regardless of hep b core antibodies (total) status ?

yes core antibodies just show that the individual has had a previous infection.  A positive anti hbc will be the only diffference between a person with immunity through a previous infection and one with immunity through vaccination.
