Hi All,

I have created my Pearson VUE account couple of weeks back. I used that Pearson VUE account to take the Oracle Certified Associate Java 8 exam in a local pearson Vue center. So, as soon as I paid $150, I received an email to confirm the exam. after that, I have created an account in oracle and I tried to enter the Oracle Exam ID and my email address to validate. I have tried all 3 times and now i don't have any options to do. Please note that I haven't faced the exam yet. It is scheduled on next week

1) Created my Pearson VUE account (2 week back)
2) Purchased the exam voucher
3) Received an email to confirm the exam in oracle.
4) Created an Oracle account.
5) Trying to confirm the exam. (BUT FAILED)

First try : as soon as I created my oracle account.
Second try : after about 10 minutes
Third try : after 1 hour




I don't have much time for my exam. I have scheduled it on 9th February 2016.
Please help me. I have no experience over doing any online oracle exams before.

Thanks & Regards,
Jude

I assume you had already carefully read these recommendations from the Oracle FAQ. Because you have created your Pearson VUE account 2 weeks ago, the last item in that list definitely doesn't apply as it suggested to wait at least 1 hour but you have waited 2 weeks

It's a long time since I created (or connected) my CertView account, so not familiar with the process. But if I understand correctly, you were able to create a Pearson VUE account and you have also created an Oracle account successfully. But authenticating the CertView account using your Oracle ID and e-mail address fails. Correct? You should definitely contact the Oracle Certification Program (OCP) Team using the OCP Support Form. Normally the OCP Team responds rather quickly (within 1-2 business days). To access the OCP Support Form you are required to login with your Oracle account.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

And if you have a Twitter account, you could send @OracleCert a tweet as well.

I don't think that's required. You have created a Pearson VUE account and scheduled an exam. You've got an Oracle Testing ID and provided your personal details. So if you go the test center, you'll have to identify yourself by presenting two forms of accepted ID (at least one with a photograph). If everything is ok, you'll be able to take the exam.
You have created an Oracle account as well which you can use to e.g. purchase an Oracle training. The CertView is the application to view all Oracle certification related information. Instead of having to create another account especially for this application, you can use your Oracle account and benefit from single sign-on But in order to make that work, they have to make sure that you don't try to impersonate someone else. That's why you have to provide this information as you are probably the only one who knows your Oracle Testing ID and the email address you have used while registering your Pearson VUE account.
In your case this last step fails for some strange/weird reason. But it won't prevent you from taking the exam or it won't make your result invalid. For Pearson VUE your unique identifier is your Oracle Testing ID, so your exam result will be linked with your Oracle Testing ID. The only drawback if CertView isn't linked before you take the exam: you will not know if you have passed or failed the exam Normally you'll get an email within 30 minutes after finishing the exam to inform you your score is available through CertView.

In the meantime you have passed the OCAJP8 exam. So an update on this topic might be useful for other ranchers who have a similar issue with the CertView application. Was this issue resolved before taking the exam? Or did you encounter some issues before and/or after taking the exam?

Hi all,

Me too faced the same problem of authentication to CertView account. Yesterday at around 9 PM I ended up using all three attempts for login to CertView( but failed to authenticate ). Tried to login on today morning but was error message. When I checked my oracle account information, it was my email that I used to create oracle account yet to be confirmed(Not Verified). Thought this might be the root of issue and then verified my mail with oracle & it actually worked for me within an hour.. I can now access my CertView. Don't know if it could actually be cause or I'm dumb enough to think this way.
