Exam Pattern

All examinations include 10 scenario based, gradient multiple choice questions, with four answer options which are graded according to their accuracy. 9 Scenarios are based on a case study provided to candidates and one question does not use the case study

Each question is supported by a detailed scenario, which describes a specific Service Management or business related situation or problem. Based on the ITIL® core guidance covered by the module and the specific detail within the scenario, candidates should attempt to select the most accurate response from the four presented, that best solves the problem posed by the question.

Candidates who correctly identify the optimum response to the question will be awarded top marks (5); those who select either of the partially correct options will receive fewer marks (3 or 1) based on the degree of accuracy of the option, and those who select the incorrect or distracter option, which contains little or no accurate detail to solve the problem, will receive no marks (0).

The pass mark for this examination is 70% (35/50) and the exam duration is 120 minutes.
