Couple of days ago I prepared for my exam and wanted to set an appointment in one of our Prometric centers in Kiev. I was glad too see on Oracle site the price for the exam will be 125 USD (for emerging countries. I live in Urakine and it is one of them). I remembered my Prometric account (I did not passed exams since 2008) and tried to register for the exam. I stepped through the wizard, and on a summary page I saw that the price is 300 USD. No options, at all...
I wrote couple of letters: to prometric, to US oracle and to Moscow oracle. Promteric responded that the the price is 300$, Moscow oracle said that the price should be 125$ (Russia is also emerging country :-D , and also it is a node in our East Europe region), US oracle did not respond anything sane.
This situation is annoying me a lot. 300 and 125 $ is a big difference especially for my country. Oracle post the prices on their site, but I have no opportunity to buy a voucher!
Ok, these organizations are big and it is maybe difficult process to join them together, but today I checked the oracle prices for sun exam, and... They changed the prices! No emerging countries! 300$ for everyone regardless of location! Here is the link
Orcale prices for exams
Such treatment is not good! I did not planned to give so much money for this exam!
