  • 5 pilot questions will be integrated into each exam module.
  • Examinees will still be allotted 75 minutes to complete each exam.
  • Pilot questions will be excluded from the examinees’ final score.
  • Pilot questions will be managed to avoid impact on examinee performance.

Examinees may still continue to use the Comments page attached to exam questionnaires to share any comments or concerns regarding the exam.
