Hello!
I am new on this forum , one of the many trying to pass exam before August 1st..
I have question regarding fees (Oracle didn't bother to answer my email):
I am citizen of Poland, but at the moment I am in India, and I would like to pass my cert here. I have noticed, that voucher prices are much lower here than in Europe (125$ opposed 300$ back at home). Which price should I pay? Prometic website doesn't really give me a choice, offering only Indian-price (not that's I'm complaining ;D), but I'm not sure whether I will manage to take test before May 31st. On the other hand, I don't know if it would be the same case with new center.
Also I'm not sure about the assignment part, as it's not taken in any center.

Has anyone experience/knowledge of similar case? Thanks.

From what I recall it doesn't matter if you are a citizen of Poland or not. I have passed 2 of my certifications in UK and I'm Polish too. If you want to pass the exam in India buy your vouchers in India. Vouchers don't work in other countries, so if you buy your voucher in any other country, you want be able to use it in India.
Citizenship doesn't matter here.

Regards
Kris

That should be good news, as in total it gives quite a lot of savings . I think in case of taking test in UK situation is simpler, as the price is same.
So for assignment part should I also buy "indian voucher"?

Just pretend to be Indian
Regarding the assignment part, it's actually a good question, I would buy it in India if I were you but ... hmnn, well... I don't know, I guess if you will do part 3 in India, I would buy part 2 in India too.
PS. quick tip - don't by the voucher for part II if you don't have to, just pay directly on the website while downloading the assignment. I had a ton of problems with my voucher for the second part (bought for me by a company I work for), in one word - nightmare.

I think, if you are going to do all parts in India you should be safe

Good luck

I hope the website will honor my being Indian .

Thanks for your thoughts. I'll give a notice later how it worked.

If anyone actually had gone through similar path (passing exam in a country where vouchers are cheaper) please share your experiences.

Ok, I have registered for exam with Vue, and the system didn't even give me any choice besides having the Indian price , in spite of having my registration data stating that I'm polish.
I only hope they will accept my bank card or insurance card as the second document, as I have only passport with me.

Just remember about going to the tanning shop before the exam and you should be fine ;)

Good luck
