Dear Ranchers,

I am going to schedule my OCP Java 8 exam. (1Z0-809) I saw that in oracle official website, they are having a promotion for many certification exams up-to 35% off including the exam that I am going to take. I actually did this when I was doing my OCA java 8. But I'm sorry to ask this again, cos it's bit confusing and I have forgot how this process works.

What I need to know is how to get this promotion? I have tried to book the exam through PearsonVue website (after logging into my account). Actually, I couldn't find anywhere that they mention about promotion codes or something like that. I went up to scheduling the exam on a date in their wizard (in PearsonVue), but there were nothing about the promotion. Can anyone who had done it in recently or anyone who knows how this works, can you please reply to this post, mentioning the step by step that I need to follow?  

I hope this post may be helpful in future for someone who is going to schedule an oracle exam online.

Thanks & Regards,
Jude

I have a doubt whether this 35% discount is only offered for upgrade exams. But I don't have any certifications other than OCAJP Java 8. Here is a screenshot of those confused items when I go to buy voucher in Oracle university.



Does regular OCPJP Java 8 doesn't have any discount applicable? Should I need to buy the second one shown in the image?

The discount is good for the OCP 8. You are eligible for it.

The website lists two ways to get it.
1) Go directly to PearsonVUE and use code JavaUpgrade35
2) Buy directly from Oracle

Jude: Great.

All: The price varies by country. It's more in the US.
