Hi folks - I did the Java OCP 7 to 8 upgrade exam (1Z0-810) today and only got 60 questions (in the usual 150 minutes) cf. the 81 I expected. I was a startled  but provisionally happy  camper and worked away, but mentioned it to the test centre staff when I finished. I confirmed when I got home that the Oracle website still displays it as 81 https://education.oracle.com/upgrade-java-se-7-to-java-se-8-ocp-programmer/pexam_1Z0-810.

In addition, there was a glitch getting me started as the providers could not initially log me into the assigned computer (for 40 minutes!   ) and I'm wondering if there was some additional snafu involved so that I was served an ‘older’ version of the exam, as I think the Q number was reduced to 60 at one point in the past. Or is it possible that Oracle genuinely went down to 60 again and have not updated their website?

If it's the first possibility - an error - I wonder if my cert could be revoked and I'll have to sit the exam again? I wish I could enjoy the relief without this nagging fear!

That's weird, but they won't retract a pass once you pass.

Thanks, Jeanne
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
