OCUP OMG Certified UML Professional (OCUP):
Original Intermediate Exam Information and Coverage Map
 
 
This is the Coverage Map for the original OCUP Intermediate examination. This examination will be withdrawn on 12 September 2016, coincident with publication of its replacement the OCUP 2 Intermediate examination

This original OCUP Intermediate Examination covers a broad range of UML elements. Familiarity with these elements allows a user to read, interpret, construct, and work with fairly complex UML models.

Exam Number: .............................. OMG-OCUP-200
Duration: ........................................ 90 minutes (70 questions)
Minimum Passing Score: .......... 31
Exam Fee: ..................................... US$200 (or equivalent in local currency)
Prerequisite: ................................ Passing Score on OCUP Fundamental Exam

Below is a Coverage Map showing which sections of UML are on the Intermediate Exam. Chapter and Figure citations correspond to the UML 2.X specification according to the details in the following paragraph: 

UML Versions Covered:  The original OCUP exams (now being replaced by the OCUP 2 series) test knowledge of OMG's UML 2.x specification. The exam material corresponds most closely to UML 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3. Edits to figure numbers in a few chapters as the spec updated to versions 2.4 and 2.4.1 disturb the correspondence to this Coverage Map so we recommend that you study from the earlier versions if you plan to take the original Intermediate level exam before the OCUP 2 Intermediate exam publishes on 12 September 2016. All of the versions of the UML specification are available for free download from this page. For this original OCUP Intermediate exam, download only the Superstructure document. For the original OCUP Advanced exam, add the Infrastructure document.
