PRINCE2 Exam Format Change

Written by Andy Trainer – Wed 05 Dec 2012

APMG, the accrediting board for PRINCE2® have announced a format change to both the PRINCE2 Practitioner and Practitioner Re-Registration exams.

These changes have come about as result of a candidate survey which highlighted some issues with the timings of each exam. If you would like to learn all you need to pass your PRINCE2 exams, try our PRINCE2 Training Courses.

The fully changed formats for each are as follows:

Practitioner Exam

  • 8 questions
  • 10 question items per question, each worth one mark, total 80 marks
  • 2.5 hours (150 minutes) duration, no additional reading time
  • 44+ marks to pass (55%)
  • Open book exam (official PRINCE2 manual only)
  • Trainer pass mark - 53 out of 80 (66%)

Practitioner Re-Registration Exam

  • 3 questions
  • 10 question items per question, each worth one mark, total 30 marks
  • 1 hour (60 minute) duration, no additional reading time
  • 17+ marks to pass (55%)
  • Open book exam (official PRINCE2 manual only)
  • Trainer pass mark - 20 out of 30 (66%)

These changes will take immediate effect from January 1st 2013 and will entirely replace the 'old' format of the exams.
