I will be giving my OCA SQL Expert exam and would like to know about the scoring system of oracle in these exams like
1. Are there any negatives i.e does marking an answer wrong deduct points?
2. Are there different marks for different questions or do all questions carry equal weightage?
Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
1. Are there any negatives i.e does marking an answer wrong deduct points?Answering a question incorrectly and not answering it at all have the same 'negative' effect on your test score. Essentially, you are better off guessing than leaving a question unanswered.
2. Are there different marks for different questions or do all questions carry equal weightage?I've never seen anything from Oracle Education specifically addressing this. However, they do mention that multiple answer questions do not get partial credit if you were to get, for example, two out of three of the correct answers. They specifically note than an answer is either right or wrong, with no grey area. This implies that all questioned have the same weight.
