Hallo gays,

Have anyone of you did the exam OCA twice? I just did the exam today and i failed unfortunately. I'm planning to do it again next week. If i do it next week shall i get the same questions? Or even similar to what I've got today?

Anyone have experience with that?

Thank you in advance!

Welcome to CodeRanch!

Firstly, check out the exam retake policy. AFAIK, there must be at least 2 weeks' gap between two attempts of same certification.

Secondly, I would highly recommend not to base your study on such assumptions (that same questions would be there) - if you do that, you may gain the certification, but it won't help you much on longer term.

I would suggest to go through your report card, identify your weak areas (where you got low score) and focus on them. Don't rush in a hurry for second attempt.

All the best!

Thank you very much Anayonkar for your replay.

To be honest i forgot all questions that i got in the exam. The only thing i remember that the exam is more easy than the mock exam Etsviewer. Which i found really hard.

Thank you much and i think i will take the exam after 3 weeks!

Paul,

If you fail an exam, you must pay to write the exam again.

Cheers,
Mala
