Is this an open book exam?
The Foundation certification examination is closed book. However, the PRINCE2 practitioner exam is an open book exam. Only the official printed hard copy of the Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2® 2017 Edition is allowed.
What types of questions will I get?
The PRINCE2 Foundation exam comprises classic, missing word, and list multiple choice questions. Classic questions have a question and four possible options. Missing word questions entail a sentence with a missing word, and four possible options to fill the blank.
As for the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam, candidates need to attempt multiple choice questions based on ‘Project Scenario’. For at least one question, candidates need to use ‘Additional Information’ to learn about people who may be working on the project.
How long will it take to receive my exam results?
Candidates may receive examination results immediately after the web-based examination. Final results and the certificate are sent via email within two to three working days.
Will my PRINCE2 Practitioner certification expire?
The PRINCE2 Foundation certification does not expire. On the other hand, the PRINCE2 Practitioner certification expires after three years. To maintain this qualification, you can either retake the PRINCE2 Practitioner Exam before the expiry date or follow the CPD points and digital badge route. For the latter, you will need to subscribe to MyPRINCE2.
