I wrote the OCA exam a few hrs ago. The person at the center told me that they would send me an Email in 30 mins. But havent received any mail yet.
I had brought in my id's (Passport and license) with me while taking the test. The invigilator noticed this only after I started taking the test. I had to take a uninterrupted break to keep the id's back in the locker. My marker wasnt writing, so had to ask for another one. I lost around 10 mins in this ruckus... ran out of time and left 10-12 questions unanswered

Probably not useful anymore for you, but might be useful for other ranchers who stumble upon this topic.
You definitely require a CertView account to view your score. You create a Pearson VUE account (providing your personal details) and you get an Oracle Testing ID. Now you can schedule an exam. You create 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 need to authenticate your CertView account and have to provide your Oracle Testing ID and the email address you have used while registering your Pearson VUE account.
I would suggest creating your CertView account a few weeks before actually taking the exam, because sometimes you might experience some issues during the authentication process. And if you don't have a CertView account, you probably won't be able to view your score (and that might result in a moment).

Sorry to hear about that! But indeed, you are not allowed to have anything else in the exam room than the writing materials you have gotten. Even your car key, a small bottle of water or some candy (e.g. energy/power bar) are not allowed.
A good top for your next exam: When you get the writing materials, just try the pen/marker/... and see if it writes. That's something I always do before taking the exam. If it doesn't work, you can ask another one and you don't lose any precious time!
