Hello All,

As I understand there are two types of questions: multiple choice, Yes/No and there is always (for each question) only one correct answer??

Am I right??

Hi Slawek

For multiple choice there will be at least one correct answer. It's possible that all of the supplied answers will be correct.

Are there penalty points in multiple choice questions?
For example, There are 3 correct answers
Question:
A)Correct
B)Correct
C)Correct
D)Incorrect
The user chooses AB and D
Does the user receive 66,67% for pointing 2 correct answers
or he receives 33,33% for choosing 2 correct - 1 incorrect.

I would be guessing but from the sounds of it you may not be ready as this is the same format the open runs.
You still have to get 85% to pass so theoretically should be hitting 100% in the open and know the framework before attempting the exam.
Open is the same format as the PSM to get you used to the type of questions, "select all that apply" "which of these is false", "which of the following is true" .
Practice the open exam and see how you fair with the questions, that doesn't mean to say if you can pass the open you can pass PSM as the PSM is much more broader for obvious reasons.

Hi - I do not believe that you get penalised for getting one wrong in a list of answers just no points

Migenova,
Do not be misled; trust me you will be penalized for missing one correct answer if the question required you to select all that applies. Remember, you have 80 questions and you need to get about 68 of them correct to get to the pass mark. My experienced with Open Exam questions, has showed me that, missing one or two answers where you are asked to select all that applies will give you a score of zero in that question. Ideally, you should be aiming at getting all the required answers correct. The most important thing is to understands what the question is asking. Question such, select all that applies could as well mean all of the above.
