For the Java 7 to Java 8 upgrade exam, Oracle reduced the number of questions from 81 to 60. That's quite a difference!

The traditional OCP is still 85 questions, but upgrade exams are now 60. Interesting.

Thanks for the update. I wonder if the upgrade is harder than before

I think it might be. I can't imagine they took out the easy questions!

So now the questions are 60 instead of 80? I am taking the exam in 2 weeks.

Correct. At least now you know and won't be caught by surprise on the exam!

Thank you Jeanne. Is the time reduced as well? Where I can find information about these changes?

Hope it's OK to exhume this thread after a year (and just in time for Halloween :O

The number is now 81 again?!
Surely all this to-and-fro on the number messes up mock exam formats and exam prep?
Why oh why?

Given that I wrote a printed book, we dealt with that by noting that the # of questions may change .

Yes, thanks Jeanne, I'm using your excellent book and saw that - suppose I'm just a little incredulous that they's flip-and-flop on this, given how it might didrupt mock exam prep formats etc!
