Oracle posted the exam info today for the new 1Z0-819 exam. 50 questions in 90 minutes with a passing core of 68%.

The upgrade exam remains at 80 questions in 180 minutes with a passing score of 61%.

As a reference the 815/816 were each 80 questions in 180 minutes with a passing score of 63%

I complained to Oracle that replacing 1Z0-815/1Z0-816 with 1Z0-819 is unfair to those of us who took the old route. We paid for two exams instead of just one, and 1Z0-819 only takes 90 minutes, a quarter of the 360 minutes required for the 1Z0-815/1Z0-816 exams. Not to mention that 1Z0-819 has a reduced scope. That is cheapening the certification.

Can I schedule the 1Z0-815 yet?

Can 1Z0-815 can be taken still?

Yes.  It is completely (practically) pointless without also taking 816 before the end of the month.

Marginally reduced scope. They only removed a handful of topics. And they were all ones that people rarely use in the real world. (plus "word problems about benefits of Java".

For someone new to certification, one could argue that the new cert is harder because you have to know all the topics at the same time and the pass score is higher. (I'm taking the 819 a week from today so i shall have a stronger opinion then)
 
I think I'll just lie down here for a second. And ponder this tiny ad:
