Hello,

Finally i finished learning and doing mock exams, and I would like to pass certification. I know, that there are two ways to register on the exam, one is to Register at Pearson VUE website and buy exam there, the second is to Purchase Exam Voucher from Oracle University and Register at Pearson VUE.
The problem is, that via first option I would have to choose the date of the exam before payment.
And in my case, I would like to but a voucher, and choose the date later on. So I should buy voucher at oracle university, and later on, register on Pearson VUE.

However, on oracle university I cannot choose certain exam. There are strange options like Oracle Certification Proctored Exam or Oracle Certification Master Assignments.

Which one should I choose for Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 8?

If you purchase from Pearson Vue directly you can reschedule your exam free of charge provided you reschedule it at least one business day before the exam.
I rescheduled my OCA 808 exam three different times using the Pearson Vue web site with no problems.
It should be noted that scheduling of the exam also depends on testing center availability.
Some testing centers may only be open on certain days or certain times.
Some people on this site noted that they had to wait a few weeks do to testing center availability.

I have not used the voucher system and do not know too much about it.

Ok, thanks a lot!

Two more questions,

Is there a possibility to change the currency? I can see, that I can buy exam only with USD instead of EUR or PLN (My Polish currency.) And because of currency restriction I would not be able to write exam in Poland if I pay by USD.

What is more, is there a possibility to get an invoice for a company, from my exam?

For me the site changed the currency automatically and I was charged in Canadian funds (I live in Canada) as opposed to US funds.

I'm not too sure, possibly, I suggest that you contact them directly to find out for sure.
You can contact them using the information found here http://www.pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact/
They even have a live web chat where you can ask your question and get an answer somewhat quickly. However I suspect that is only during business hours.

I would have thought that an invoice for the exam fee would be sent automatically. Ask your employer about what they require if they have offered to reimburse you the fee.
