Hi, ive just noticed on oracles website the programmer 7 I exam is 70 questions and £149 but the programmer 8 I exam is £30 and 150 - 225 questions. Is this right? It seems really strange. Thanks

If you decide to take Beta, be prepared to see (a) some questions with mistakes and typos (b) some really-really weird questions 8-)

After Beta the questions with very low (or very high) %% of correct answers will be filtered, so they won't go to the candidate who take production exam later.

And also be prepared to wait several weeks to know if you passed or not.
