EXAM DIFFICULTY INDEX

The tables detail the relative difficulty of the exams on a scale from 1 to 5. "5" the most difficult, "1" no sweat at all. Clearly, everyone's view of hard or easy will be affected by their degree of prior exposure to the particular subject matter and their innate talent relative to the specific discipline. Those not at least semi computer literate should add one point to the difficulty index for computer related exams.

 

 

 

 

 

 

INDIVIDUAL EXAMINATION DIFFICULTY INDEX

Likely relative difficulty an average intelligent and motivated adult learner would experience scoring at least a "B" in selected proficiency exams

  

1 = No study required
2 = Light revision required
3 = A reasonable effort required
4 = Some real study required
5 = No messing around a good score requires significant effort.

For a simple pass, reduce difficulty index by 1 in each case.
