disclaimer: I have no certificates and I consider myself an beginner/intermediate programmer



I am going for the OCAJP 7 myself. I would say that because it is the most relevant.

I don't know if you are a beginner or what but you may not even need one unless you have no experience and need something else to stand out.
If you are just starting to program it probably shouldn't be the first thing on your mind but maybe a good goal to set?

OCAJP 7 should be better option to start

As far as I know it is required to pass OCAJP 7 before OCPJP 7 (older versions of ocpjp may not require ocajp).

Right. Another option is to already have SCJP or OCPJP (any version). Then you have to pass an upgrade exam to get OCPJP 7.
OCPJP versions older that 7 do not require OCAJP.

If you don't have any certification yet, the OCAJP7 is the one to go for!

Good luck!
