Is someone 100% sure the 1st October rule does NOT apply to OCPJP and I can schedule my exam for October without worries? Or should I rather take in on 30th September to be on the safe side?
Ok, so I got another response from Oracle:
"We apologize for the confusion caused.
To earn your Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 6 Programmer you have to pass the Exam Java Standard Edition 6 Programmer Certified Professional Exam (1Z0-851)
The Hands-on course requirement is not applicable for this certification track. Visit our website for more information."
So it seems taking OCPJP in October and later should be fine without the need for the training.
