Foundation Exam

The foundation exam is a 1 hour closed book multiple choice examination. There are 75 questions with 5 of the questions for trial and feedback purposes so will not carry a mark. To pass the exam you need to score 50% (35 of the 70 available marks).

Preparing for an Exam

Do not sit the exam before you’re ready and feel confident. We recommend that you should only consider booking an official exam when you have achieved the following:-

  • Worked through all the course sections and units at least once
  • Completed the exam simulator tests and achieved a repeatable score of 50% / above.

Don’t feel nervous about the exam process. Our comprehensive eLearning course covers the exam syllabus in full and we will also provide you with exam hints and tips.  Furthermore, we (unlike many competitors) pay extra for the premium remote proctoring service.  With this ProctorU service you will be personally guided through the on-line exam process rather than having your exam being recorded and watched by an invigillator later.  This means there are fewer opportunities for your exam to be disqualified because of in-advertant mistakes with in the exam process itself.

Exam Voucher / Booking

If you upgrade and go on to purchase an exam you will be sent an email with a voucher code and a link to use the code to make your booking.  The exam is run through our Examination Institute (PeopleCert) remote ProctorU service.  You can  book your exam for a time and day of your choosing including weekends and evenings, but you need to give 10 days notice of when this is.  Withn 24 hours of booking your exam you will receive a confirmation email asking you to resigester on the PeopleCert’s (Exam Institute) website before for your exam takes place.

Please note that you need to redeem your voucher (book your exam) within the course expiry period.
