All McAfee Institute Board Exams are timed. Each program varies, so please refer to your course for more details.

They are a mixture of true/false, multiple choice and scenario based questions.

Exams must be taken in one sitting and cannot be taken over multiple settings, time periods or days..

Once you enter the exam environment, you have to complete it in that sitting

The exams are closed book exams.

Make sure to have a stable internet connection. Your exam will not be given a second time due to poor internet connections or loss of internet.

Passing score is 70%. We have over a 99.7% pass rate if you follow the materials and utilize the prep review quizzes to study.

If you failed your exam and it came with an exam guarantee you will receive a second attempt for free (if you qualify), learn more here.

Please refer to the course landing page to see if this is applicable for the program of your interest.

If you fail the exam, run out of time and fail it, or stopped the exam for any reason without completing it, you will need to purchase a new exam license.
