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 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".

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