Oracle Testing and Registration

Exam information

  • All Oracle exams are either proctored or non-proctored:
    • Proctored exams are considered high-stakes exams and are therefore only delivered with a proctor. All exams, except Oracle Database OCM exams, are offered at Pearson VUE testing centers and some are offered at Oracle University training locations in some regions. In addition to a regular, proctored certification exams, there are two specialized types of proctored exams.
      • - Beta exams are preproduction exams used by Oracle to evaluate new exam questions with the participation of a live audience.
        - Oracle Certified Master (OCM) exams are conducted at designated Oracle University facilities in each global region. Visit the Oracle Certification website to learn more and register for OCM exams. These exams are not available at Pearson VUE test centers.
    • Non-proctored exams are available online without a proctor. There are currently three types of non-proctored exams: online exams, master assignments and free practice questions. These exams are thus a more accessible way to get started on a certification path. Non-proctored exams do not require preregistration or an appointment and are available on-demand 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
      • - Online Exams - Oracle also offers several exams online without a proctor, which provides a more accessible way to get started on a certification path. Online exams, also referred to as non-proctored exams do not require preregistration or an appointment, and are available on-demand 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Only select exams are available online, and certification is never awarded based solely on passing an online exam. To achieve certification, an online exam must always be paired with a proctored exam. The Oracle Certification exam listings detail whether each exam is proctored or non-proctored (online).
        - Master Assignments – Another form of a non-proctored exam is the Master Assignment. These assignments are a part of some Oracle Certified Master paths. Candidates download these assignments from Pearson VUE. They have 6 months from assignment purchase date to complete the assignment, upload the files for grading, and submit the essay.
        - Free Practice Questions – For a limited time, Oracle is offering sets of practice questions for some Java and Oracle Solaris exams free when qualifying candidates register for a Java, Oracle Solaris (Cluster), MySQL, or NetBeans exam before a specified date. Candidates can find more information on this promotion on Oracle’s Certification website. NOTE: You must create a web account with Pearson VUE before you can schedule your exam.
