    So, like the new Oracle Java 11 Path says. I can take the Java SE 8 Programmer I (1Z0-808) exam then get my Java SE 8 OCA Certification. Then I take the Java SE 11 Programmer II (1Z0-816) exam, and I can get my Java SE 11 Developer Certification ?

    I purchased the exam Voucher from https://education.oracle.com for the upgrade exam 1Z0-813(Java SE 6 and all prior versions). Now the new exam version launched for jdk 11 upgrade 1Z0-817
    Can I use the same voucher for this new version jdk 11 instead of jdk 8 or it cannot be switched between the versions? Appreciate your response as I did not attempt the exam.

    Technically, you can take 808 and 816 and earn the SE 11 OCP certification. However, this path was designed to accommodate candidates who are Java SE 8 OCAs, not for new candidates to start there. If you are a new candidate, we recommend that you start with exam 815, the Java SE 11 Programmer I exam so that you are starting your learning with the latest training and technology.

    Hi Dhanalakshmi,
    I am so sorry for the long delay in responding. I hope that you were able to get a more speedy answer from the support team but if not, I wanted to confirm for you that you can use that voucher for the 817 upgrade exam.
