Why are the tests so hard?

We are often asked why the tests are so hard.  There are 2 reasons for this.

First, it is an open book test. Open book tests are always harder. You can have the module open in front of you when you sit the test. All the questions are based on the modules and there is plenty of time to complete them. 

Secondly we need to maintain a certain level of difficulty to ensure our own legitimacy. If the tests were too easy then it destroys our reputation as a provider of quality reputable CPD.

We think the tests are fair and while some questions may be tricky the answers are all found in the module article.
