Process of Evaluation
Marking of digital exams is automatic, and results are visualized immediately after the exam by our examination program - whether onsite on tablets, or online. Exam takers for the ISTQB/IREB CPRE certification also receive a detailed “Statement of Results” by email, which breaks down performance in percentages per every chapter of the examination.
Failing and Repeating an ExamAs with all exams, there is a possibility of failing, but this shouldn’t worry you as all exams are available to retake as many times as you need.
The IREB CPRE certification exam differs in that applicants can retake the exam twice in a row. If applicants fail for a third time, they have to wait for a year to retake the exam again.
