Exam's Time Constraint Concern

Hi All,

For OCI Architect Associate exam or any other, it was mentioned as 105 mins. in the exam description and during the registration.  Please find the attachment.

But, during the exam the time allocated was 85 mins.

What was the reason? Any idea on it?

Thanks,

Arun Jadhav

    I believe it includes the time you need to prepare the environment, etc.

    The same happened with all the exams I took from OCI; the time on the actual exam tool was 15-20 minutes less than the one showed.

    Thanks for replying, @L. Fernigrini

    They themselves mentioned as 105 mins. and allocated only 85 mins.

    When the complexity of the exam increases gradually, they either should allow extra time or reduce the number of questions.

    To read questions itself takes long time.  And, not only questions but the answers are also long. So it takes time to understand and compare each option.  Sometimes, we had to scroll the window on the tool to view all the options completely.  Such a long Q&As were they.

    It's very unfair to provide same duration for different complexity of exams.

    I have to disagree...  it is not unfair. When you are on primary (elementary) school you you have one hour to solve an exam... And in University you also have one hour to solve an exam.

    The exam is quite more complex, but you have quite more experience. The same happens with Oracle exams, the OCI Architect Associate one expects you to have at least one six months of experience on OCI,(and 1 year for Proffessional):

    But I do agree that the time informed should match the time available.
