7 THE EXAMINATION
The examination structure
The Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) examination is a one-hour examination made up of 40 multiple choice questions. There are five main aspects to the examination’s structure:
• The questions are all equally weighted.
• Questions are set from learning objectives stated in each section.
• The number of questions associated with each section of the syllabus is in proportion to the amount of time allocated to that section of the syllabus, which roughly translates into:
Section 1, 8 questions.
Section 2, 5 questions.
Section 3, 5 questions.
Section 4, 11 questions.
