Questions about the path 1Z0-808-->1Z0-816

Hi,

I've decided to be Oracle certified in 2018 and got two books on 1Z0-808. (OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide, by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff and OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Certification Guide, by Mala Gupta). But it took me too long to finish those two books and I had a few setbacks so I decided to take the exam later.

So my friends, today I decided today would be a good day to prepare again for the exam and took a look at Oracle's website just to make sure the topics I will focus on are right. And I nearly cried because of the bad news.

After reading a few topics on the forum, given I have got already two books and I've read them two times, I've decided to re-read them and  take the path 1Z0-808 --> 1Z0-816. Questions follow;

1)Is there any chance of Oracle asking me questions about the topics they introduced for SE11 Part-1 exam -such as modules- in 1Z0-808? I'm asking this because some reviews of the new exams tells that Oracle asks a few off-topic questions on the recent exams.(for example, Date API on 1Z0-815)
2)When I pass 1Z0-808, will I still get an associate certificate? Or the certification policy changed for the old exams too?
3)Will the upgrade exam(Upgrade from OCA Java 5, 6, 7 & 8) exactly the same with the reqular path 1Z0-815-->1Z0-816? Will there be different questions from the classic 1Z0-816 exam just because I'm taking an upgrade exam?

Thank you all.

Hello Alp,

I am by no means an expert on the Oracle exams but I recently took the 1Z-808 OCA exam myself.
Regarding your first question, Oracle will not ask you anything related to what was introduced after Java 8 on the OCA exam.
Regarding your second question, yes, if you pass 1Z-808 you will get the OCA certificate.

No.

Yes.

Yes, exactly same. It doesn't matter who takes the 1Z0-816 exam. All are tested against the same set of exam objectives.

But be aware that 1Z0-816 exam is not called the Upgrade Exam. The exam code for Upgrade to Java 11 exam is 1Z0-817 and it has a different set of objectives than OCP Java 11 Part 2 exam. The 1Z0-816 exam is just the part 2 of the regular OCP Java 11 certification process. Oracle has allowed previous OCA and OCP certification holders to upgrade to Java 11 through the 816 exam. Confusing? Yeah, tell me about it
