    Each of these exams has its own specific requirements which can be found on the Oracle Training website.

Candidates must correctly answer 66% of the questions for a passing score, however Oracle clearly states that the passing score may change without notice. Exam topics include Preparing the Database Environment, Create an Oracle Database, Implementing Database Security, Database Maintenance and many others.

    Retake policy

Candidates can find their local testing center by registering through the Oracle website but make sure to check with your local testing center for up-to-date price information. Keep a look out for promotional exam discounts from Oracle or for third-party exam voucher specialists to help you save on the cost of the exam.
