Hi,

I'm new here. Planning to take the Java certification exam. There's a bit of confusion on this. As much as I'd like to get the latest OCP 11 certification, I'm not keen on paying for 2 exams & get 1 certificate.

I read that OCA 8 (1z0-808) certified people can take OCP 11 directly (1z0-817). Does this apply only for people who already got OCA 8 or can I take it now & upgrade to OCP 11 - there by having 2 certifications for 2 exams?

Or can I only take 1z0-815 & 816 since I don't already have the 808 certification.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome to the Ranch!

Whatever works for you.

For people like us, we possibly want to start with the OCA 8 and then look to upgrade.

Please be advised however:

If you do choose to take the Java 11 part 1 , see the objectives mapping. You'll need to know teh OCA 8 material perfectly and in way more detail. And then study the new topics on your own.

Thanks for the reply.

My question is whether I can get take 1z0-808 now and then 1z0-817?

Or is 1z0-817 route is only for people who already cleared 1z0-808?

Is there any difference in the certification we receive from the direct route 816 and upgrade route 817?

Please don't overlook the upgrade link that I have previously provided.

See this flow chart: https://enthuware.com/which-java-certification-exam-should-i-take

No, there is no difference. You will get the same OCP Java SE11 Developer certification through either of the paths.

Not correct. If you have passed 808, you are eligible to take 816. Not 817.

817 is for people who have passed 809.

Thanks Paul.  What I should have written (but my provided link outlined) is that the "816 drive" is different from the "817 drive" on the way to the (same) OCP Java SE11 Developer certification destination, particularly when one is "not keen on paying for 2 exams & get 1 certificate".

Thanks all. I read all the links and it's clear now. My route will be 1z0-808 and then 1z0-816.

Thanks for the help.

I did not realize that.  My sincerest apologies to all Ranchers and to Oracle.  Thank you Campbell for correcting this information.

That's a pleasure and I don't think there is any need to apologise for anything. You need to have a high index of suspicion about links, however.
