It's only been 7 hours and most of us were sleeping most of it.

If you memorise questions, you will fail.  You have to know and understand the listed objectives.

You scored 61% on the exam.  What were your practise test scores?

Hi Ram Desai Gupta,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

That's a very bad approach and will guarantee another failure! You can never pass this certification exam by memorization. You need a very good and solid understanding of all basic Java and OO concepts to pass the exam, because your questions will be randomly selected from a question bank and you have no clue about which questions you'll get.

Please EaseUp! Don't forget we all answer questions here voluntarily, in our leisure time. So instead of making such a poor post, you could have spent your time much better and for example provide as much information as possible about your preparation for the certification exam. Which resources (study guides) did you use? Did you write lots of code snippets? Did you use an IDE or a text editor? Did you take mock exams? And if you did, what were the mock exam scores on first attempt?
And you could also have used the excellent search function of this website. Many people have already asked for advice to prepare for the certification exam, so you'll find plenty of topics with advice to prepare (and ace) the OCAJP exam. Here are a few:
  • Studying so hard just to fail(1z0-808)
  • Failing Java SE 8 Programmer I
  • Bad Experience with OCA 7 exams
  • Any tricks about how to manage the 120 min for so many question?
  • second failed OCAJP
  • Need some advice after failing the exam
  • A humble request for your process


  • Hope it helps!
    Kind regards,
    Roel

    No. Oracle has a large pool of questions. The statistical chances of getting the same questions is really low.
