PRINCE2® Foundation Examination

The purpose of the foundation level is to confirm that you have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the PRINCE2® method to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team working within an environment supporting PRINCE2®. There are no pre-requisite qualifications before taking the foundation examination. Candidates must achieve a pass at PRINCE2® Foundation level before completing the PRINCE2® Practitioner examination.

The PRINCE2® Foundation exam format:

  • Multiple choice
  • 75 questions per paper
  • 5 questions to be trial and not counted in scores
  • 35 marks required to pass (out of 70 available) – 50%
  • 60 minutes duration
  • Closed book

On successful completion of the PRINCE2® Foundation exam the gained qualification is not valid for a defined period and will not expire. Candidates who pass the PRINCE2® Practitioner exam are recognised as a ‘PRINCE2® Registered Practitioner’. You will remain registered for a period of 5 years. To maintain the registered status, practitioners must complete and pass a PRINCE2® re-registration examination 3-5 years following your initial/previous practitioner certification.

When ready to take your exam there is a flexible exam-taking process, suited to  individual needs. Online learners can choose to take their exam either:
