Hello,
I am a first year university student, studying computer science and I am interested on Java SE 8 Programmer I, to be in other words an Oracle Certified Associate. Although, I can barely afford the voucher's price and I would like to know if it's worth that price. Is it a good advantage to be certified when you apply for an internship? I would really want to work as a summer intern and if it's worth I will definitely go for it !

Also, I would like to congratulate you guys about the forum! It's really awesome, found a lot of content about the exam which is very helpful!
Thanks in advance, keep up the good work!

PS. Sorry for my bad English, I'm writing after a long period of coding so I am kinda dizzy

Welcome to the Ranch

Yes, the exam is worth the price you pay for it. But, it isn't easy, so maybe consider only doing your degree work at the moment. Maybe other people will have different opinions.

Actually, Java is a course in my university's semester, so studying for the exam would benefit me either way. Also, if I see that I can't deal with that or do not have the time I will just give up. Thanks for the answer !

I don't know about degree courses where you are, but in England the way a degree moduel is assessed is completely different from a cert exam. The types of question are completely different. But yes, earning Java® for a cert exam will help you learn it better.

. . . Thanks for the answer !

That's a pleasure
