I've recently received a number of questions or comments related to exam pricing and thought that I should clarify here in the blog.
I'd like to start out with a bit of a disclaimer: Oracle's certification program is a global program -- however, what you ultimately pay for exams may be influenced somewhat by currency conversions (due to currency exchange rate fluctuation) and also by which currency is accepted for payment in your country (either by Oracle or one of our test delivery vendors).
There are three places that you can go to review certification exam prices for Oracle exams:
I hope that this helps you find the information that you need related to certification exam pricing. For the latest information related to Oracle certification, visit the Oracle certification website often at certification.oracle.com.

Thanks & Best RegardsAitizaz Asgharaitizaz2009@live.com+971501671191
Aitizaz,I suggest you start with having a look at our website certification.oracle.com. In the Certification Finder at the bottom of the page, you can select Database in the 2nd field, Database in the 3rd field and Languages in the 4th field. This will give you a list of available certifications. From there, you can see the requirements for each certification. Good luck on your path.
I have completed "1Z0-007: Introduction to Oracle9i SQL" and "1Z0-052 Oracle Database 11g: Adminstration I" exams, now I'm preparing for "1Z0-053 Oracle Database 11g: Adminstration II". But I have attended only Oracle 9i instructor-led Courses. Can I submit this to attain OCP?
Elias,Unfortunately, the 9i course will not count toward the 11g certification. you have a couple of options - 1) you can take an 11g course or 2) you can go for the 9i certification and then upgrade to 11g OCP.
You have the 007 exam. You'll need to take 031, 032 and 033. Then you'd need to take 055 to upgrade.
My recommendation would be to take the 11g training rather than going backwards. The training can only help, even though it is expensive.
Good luck!Brandye Barrington
