Beta exams are pre-production exams used by Oracle to evaluate new exam questions with the participation of a live audience. Beta exam questions go through a rigorous development and evaluation process before being released to the public.

Data gathered during beta testing are used to select the best questions for the production exam, and to eliminate questions that are ambiguous, too easy or too difficult, or unhelpful in evaluating your knowledge. Beta exams are offered at a deeply discounted price; candidates usually have 2.5 to 3.5 hours to complete the exam, and may see 120 - 220 questions.

Important Information about Beta vs Production Exams

How can you tell if an exam is in BETA or PRODUCTION?

  • Oracle Certification Beta Exam numbers being with “1Z1”.
  • Oracle Certification Production Exam numbers begin with “1Z0”.
  • Both versions of the exam have the same suffix, or numbers at the end of the exam title. For example:
    • Beta version of an exam: 1Z1-512
    • Production version of same exam: 1Z0-512

Registering for a Beta Exam

  • To register for a beta exam, visit Pearson VUE’s Online registration system.
  • We do not sell Beta exam vouchers.
  • If you’ve purchased a production exam voucher, you may use it to pay for a beta exam; however, please note that we cannot deduct partial amounts from your voucher.
  • For example, if your voucher is worth $245US and you use it to purchase the beta exam at $50US, you will forfeit the remaining $195US and your voucher will not be valid for further use.

Taking a Beta Exam

  • Each beta candidate must complete a brief demographic survey as a part of the exam. Survey results are kept confidential. Your responses are compiled and used to calibrate the exam.
  • Beta exams contain more questions than the final production version of the exam. Beta exams contain 120-220 questions, whereas production exams contain 50-100 questions.
  • Beta exams usually take 2.5-3.5 hours to complete. With the higher number of questions, you may not have as much time to spend on each question as you would when taking a production exam.
  • Feedback is integral to the beta testing process. We encourage you to include comments about specific exam questions. You can add your comments as you are working through the exam, or you can mark specific questions and return to add your comments once you are finished answering the exam questions.
  • Please note that Beta Exams may only be taken once.

Scoring a Beta Exam

  • You will only be scored on the questions that are chosen for the final exam.
  • Since you are graded only on the questions selected for the production version of the certification exam, it may take up to 11 weeks after the close of the beta period to receive your exam results from Pearson VUE.
  • Passing a beta exam is the same as passing a production exam.
  • For example, if you were to pass all the beta versions of the exams required within an Oracle Certification path, you will earn your Oracle Certification credential.
  • Beta Exams may only be taken once.
