Hi guys,

I have some queries regarding exam registration.

1. Is it possible NOT to buy any voucher from Oracle(or any other vendor for that matter), but instead make payment directly while registering for
the exam via the Pearson VUE website?

2. Assuming it is indeed possible to pay and register directly via the Pearson VUE website, will it still be possible to reschedule the exam if need be,
as in move it to a date before or after the date for which I had initially registered?

Hope someone can advise. Thanks.

Thanks.

With much respect,

Hi Folks,

Thanks for the replies, appreciate it. What happened was yesterday I purchased the voucher from Oracle. They slapped a tax of $29.43 in addition to the cost of $322.00, meaning the total is now $351.43, that's when I was beginning to wonder if it would have just cost $322.00 if I were to pay directly via Pearson VUE. Anyway I went through the transaction at the end of which the order status mentioned that I would receive an email notification with the subject line: "Your Oracle University Order Has Been Received" and that I may have to perform some additional steps before the order can be completed. Almost 24hrs has passed and I have yet to receive any such email. If the voucher is going to be more expensive than directly paying via Pearson VUE, than I am thinking if should cancel the voucher. Sergej Smoljanov, congrats on having passed the OCA. Ms Mala Gupta thanks for the link, I really appreciate that. I have heard about the books you wrote madam and I am flattered that you actually bothered to help me out here. Thanks.


If anyone knows of any price difference between the voucher and Pearson VUE, do let me know. Thanks everyone.

Also it may seem superfluous, but also when plan go to exam call to exam center (at pearson site it has phone number) next post may say why:

When i order exam (i go to center and speak with personal) i see that i can schedule it early morning, also girl (that was turn on process) say that she come to center later because it has training at that day. (So i think it right to call to it)
That call just to confirm that people wait for you.

I discovered JavaRanch when I started working with Java and when I prepared for my Java certification. The ranchers have always been very kind and helpful. I'm pleased to learn that my response helped you.

Thanks.

With much respect,
Mala
