I appear in 1Z0-147 exam,I gave exam in prometric center(Focus training institute, Pune) within three click I come out from exam without accepting any tern and condition.
with passing score 0%, because I did not get the chance to attempt a Question and End Exam screen come to me with no option to go back.
As much as I remember Here are the steps with I followed:

1)I initially got screen for welcome certification test, which had
next button in the corner

2) The second screen has terms and condition page, where I could not
see any agree and disagree page on that, again I had same button next
on the corner of page.which I clicked

3)Next page having instruction to go back on the page else button the
End the Exam. In the glance I clicked in second option rather to go

4)All of sudden I see I come out of the certification Exam with 0% score.

I have also called and Executive, which suggested me to mailed on oracle customer care(, but did not get the reply yet.
I am not sure what all to do next.

Hi Saurabh,
Did you report the incident to the staff at the test center? Did you get an incident number? Did you receive any help from the staff at the test center? I think you should start by contacting Pearson VUE Customer Service. You can find local contact numbers on their website at If you received an incident number at the test center, have that available. They should be able to assist.

I have done OCA in 9i. I would like to appear in 1Z0-146 Oracle 11g Advanced PL/SQL. Is that possible.

Q.1. Is this possible to appear directly in 1Z0-146 Oracle 11g Advanced PL/SQL EXAM. Or i need to complete below two exam??

1Z0-051 Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals I And
1Z0-144 Oracle Database 11g: Program with PL/SQL

then only i could able to go for this 1Z0-146 Oracle 11g Advanced PL/SQL EXAM

Q.2. If it is possible to appear IZO 146 exam directly. So in that case I wll get Oracle Advanced PL/SQL Developer Certified Professional or not?

It would be very helpful if some one help me out here with answering this questions.

Hi Hindol,
Since you have done 9i DBA OCA, you have passed the 007 exam. This will take the place of the 051 or 047 - you do not need to take one of these exams.

In order to get to the 11g Advanced PL/SQL OCP certification, you will need to pass 147 or 144 and then 146.

Just now I cleared Iz0-047 exam.
Kindly let me know which exam should I appear next now??
For OCP?? May I know the exam code????


Posted by guest on January 25, 2014 at 10:48 AM PST #

It depends on which certification you wish to pursue. If you are pursuing 11g DBA OCP, you should pass 052 for 11g DBA OCA and then 053 for 11g DBA OCP. You will also need to complete a training course to obtain the 11g DBA OCP certification.

I have given 1Z0-007-ENU-ONLINE: Introduction to Oracle9i: SQL
English and 1Z0-147: Program with PL/SQL
English for OCA.

Now i am planing to give OCP but for 11g
1Z0-146-Oracle Database 11g: Advanced PL/SQL

can i directly give 1Z0-146 or do i need to give any exam of the upgrade of 9i to 11g OCA

Also is 1Z0-007 certification retired?

Your OCA certification is not version-specific. you can go on to the Advanced PL/SQL certification by taking the 146 exam without further ado.

Last weak i have completed my OCA. now i am planning to do OCP. But i am confused between 1Z0-141 and 1Z0-151. Is 1Z0-141 going to retire soon. whats the difference between two certifications.

Posted by guest on June 20, 2014 at 12:56 AM PDT #

Exam 141 leads to a slightly older version of certification. The most current certificaiton is Oracle Certified Professional, Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Forms Developer (achieved by passing exam 151 and first obtaining the PL/SQL Developer OCA). The best way to determine the differences in the two certifications is to review the exam topics of each exam, which can be found on our website at

I don't have info on when the 141 exam may be retired, but I would probably recommend that you pursue the latest version of certification.

Today i was appearing in my oracle exam 1Z0-151 every thing was going perfect and suddenly (almost half time passed) a messaeg appear on screen as "
error server problem" and exam window disappeared.The computer automatically log out and restarted from welcome screen.

I apporoach to examiner/instructor and told about exam window disappear and computer restart.She checked and replied that sometimes it happens with the server.

She tries to login in to same computer but couldn't get in. Then she swithced over me to another computer and exam scession was started where it was droped out.

I was pretty sured that I answered correctly more than 85% questions but was surprised when i got my result status as 'Fail'

I would like to request to investigate to this matter with certain queries that ;

"Why the server shutdown during exam window"
"Who is responsible for this server shutdown"
"The server is shutdown on local station" and if YES what disaster recovery plan this authorised center has??
"Am i failed due to any technical problem occur at local server"
"Will the same problem be occure in future?" if i appear in same exam.

Would appreicate to review my request and investigate on this matter. Hope that your reply shall be at earliest. Thanks

I responded to this request on FB this morning. Take the action suggested in the FB response and we will get this issue moving forward for you.

Posted by guest on December 07, 2015 at 01:34 AM PST #

So, you have these certs?
- 11g DBA OCA
- PL/SQL Developer OCA

If that is correct, and you want to move on to the next level of PL/SQL Developer, you have a few options:
- Oracle Advanced PL/SQL Developer Certified Professional -
- Oracle Certified Professional, Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Forms Developer -
- Oracle Forms Developer Certified Professional -

Here's to your continued Certification success!

I would suggest that you post this question on the Oracle Certification Community

I don't have a lot of insight into the job market. It really depends quite a bit on where you are and what your skill level is. You could get some good feedback on the community.

Welcome to the Oracle Certification family!
