Hi,

Web site looks different than the last I visited, so I hope this is in the right place. My question is pretty much summed up in the subject, I attained the OCA 7 in 2015 and want to know if I can go straight for the OCP 8 now, or do I have to do the OCP 7 and then do the Java 8 upgrade exam?

Thanks

There is no straight (one-exam) way to upgrade from OCA7 to OCP8.

You can go OCA7 → OCP7 → OCP8 or just do OCA8 → OCP8.

Correct. And the OCA 8 -> OCP 8 is the easier option of the two.
