I know that we can turn on auditing for all top-level statements using the following audit all statements

I would like to continue logging only top-levels statements, but not all of them. For example, I dont want to audit alter system, create cluster etc.

Is this possible?

Oracle does not support negative audit rules.

The only exception is the EXCEPT clause for Unified Audit policies which excludes the given users from auditing, but not statements.
