Voucher usage

If I buy a voucher that is, valid for 6 months apparently and 212,- euro, can I take the 1Z0-808 and the 1Z0-809 with the same voucher ?

In other words if I have passed the 1Z0-808 do I need to buy another voucher for the 1Z0-809 even if I have, let's say 3 months left before the (first) voucher expires?

Hello everyone,
I was thinking to post a new thread, but I think here is a good idea.
For a week I've been trying to buy a voucher from Oracle (OCA), but I have scary email communication experiences.
I am from Bulgaria and I am directly contacting the Education Department (as written on their website), which is in Bulgaria (in the same city as I am).
The result is slow answers, the uncertainty in the currency conversion (Besides the fees, they want an additional 20 euros and when I ask them why - they do not know and can not answer me.) They say only - wait will check.
Besides that ...
Since I'm going to take the OCA (first and hopefully success) and OCP, I finally found out that I can buy a voucher from Pearson Vue directly and my question is: Can I now appear with new exam voucher directly from Pearson vue and later (if they ever send me voucher from Oracle) to go with this voucher to the OCP exam? Is it a problem that I've placed an order for the OCA voucher, and later I want to used for OCP? Because I see the prices and the name of the voucher are the same for all exams.
Thanks, I hope you understand me!

I'm asking because it is not clear otherwise I wouldn't ask. So I ask again and try to be more clear. I do not have bought a voucher yet so I do not know how it looks like or what it says. I only like to know if when I buy a voucher and FAIL for the exam I can RETAKE the exam without paying another 212 euro. If this is not the case I guess the confusing part is, why provide a 6 months valid voucher? I mean you schedule the exam and buy the voucher when you are done studying right?

So please if there is anyone who failed the first attempt could respond to this question I couldn't be happier.

You are the least helpful person ever, taking the time to answer me but no helpful information. I'll guess the answer is you have to pay for every exam taken since you are avoiding to answer. Did you sign some non-disclosure agreement or something with oracle ?

For my question it is answer - it says: Exam Voucher: Oracle Certification Proctored Exam (Valid for 6 months)
It doesn't say for which exam is, so I assume it is for all eligible exams, not just OCA.

To the author of this post:
I think there is only one option for free retake and I thinks its only in India. In the other words - yes, you will give every time 212 euro when you want to take any kind of exam. And if you read my problem, here in Bulgaria with tax is 254.4 euro :/ (And they want from me 20 more euro ?!?!)

Correct. You cannot take two different exams with the same voucher.
