Have you heard what the new PMP exam for 2021 looks like?

peakbusmgt.pngWhether you took the PMP exam years ago or have yet to take it, it’s worth knowing what the new exam for 2021 is like. The new PMP exam is comprised of:

  • 180 questions (the previous exam was 200), there are still some pilot questions that are not scored.
  • 230 minutes to complete the exam.
  • The material from PMBOK® Guide Sixth Edition. (Yes, it is still valid. The seventh edition exam is not expected until 2022.)
  • One additional break for a total of two 10-minute breaks for computer-based tests. Breaks are optional.
  • Questions are a combination of multiple-choice, multiple responses, matching (i.e. “drag and drop”), hotspot (i.e. “click on a chart”) and limited fill-in-the-blank.
  • 50% of the questions are Agile related. These can also include conflict management, motivation issues, scrum ceremonies, team roles, comparing Predictive vs. Agile, leadership styles, and Minimum Viable Product.
