Evaluation of professional qualifications

What does an examination question look like?

  • All examinations are comprised of objective correction and multiple-choice questions (4 choices, A, B, C, D).
  • For each question, there is only one valid answer, and the candidate marks his/her answer on a sheet provided for this purpose.
  • Depending on the subclass, the examination can contain questions referring to a handbook. The handbooks shall be distributed to the candidates inside the examination room.
  • Some questions also require that you refer to codes, regulations or legislative enactments. All the reference material which is necessary for your examination will be lent to you in the examination room.
  • There may be different types of questions within a single examination. For instance, there might be simple multiple-choice questions, and questions where you must chose the statements which are suitable to the situation scenario set forth by the question.

Here are a few examples of examination questions:
