FAQs, PRINCE2

 

Before 2017, the candidate was expected to carry out considerable reading during the exam. This could be attributed to a lower pass rate. Since the pass rates available in public domain is the average since 2012 and also includes the stats of non-native English speakers (whose pass rates are lower), the figures are less encouraging compared to Foundation Exam.

Earlier, it used to be low since one was expected to engage in the extended reading of case studies during the exam, but lately, it has gotten easier.

Also, Axelos, the PRINCE2 accreditation body, has allowed the use of bilingual paper dictionary by non-native English speakers. As an international student, you can get a clear definition of terms used in the questions to avoid any ambiguity. You are also entitled to get 25% extra time for completing the exam. To improve the pass percentage of international students, Axelos offers 3 hours 8 minutes for an exam of 150 minutes.

It is not a foregone conclusion that if the pass rates of students of an institute are lesser, its training infrastructure or faculty members are not efficient. You have to take a holistic view which will factor in average pass rates over a period of time.
