Understanding Part II Exam Results
Welcome! We would like to firstly congratulate you on completing the Part II exam, whether you
received a pass or fail, this is an achievement. The Part II exam is the first of a 3-part exam process,
and Auditors must achieve 75% in each exam to pass and gain their CSCA credential. We created this
results guide to help you read and understand your exam report and to identify areas of
improvement, either in preparation for your next attempt of the Part II exam or as preparation for
the Part III exam.
Exam Questions are divided into 4 sections:
Three of the sections include multiple categories, and these are noted within your exam report.
There are a total of 44 questions on the Part II exam. You will receive the same number of
questions, however, there are multiple scenarios and the number of questions per section relates to
the scenario. Each person with that scenario will have the same number of questions per section.
On page 1 of the exam report there are 4 circles which provides guidance as to how you went within
that section. Please note the total number of possible points may vary depending on the number of
short answer questions as they are worth more points than a True/False or Multiple-Choice
question. Each question worth more than 1 point will have this indicated at the end of the question
(2, 3 or 5 points).
For short answer questions, the point value reflects how many elements are required in the answer.
If only one element of the answer is correct you will receive 1 point out of the maximum number of
points for that question. Questions are either 2, 3 or 5 points as indicated at the end of the question.
If two elements are correct you will receive 2 points, we do not deduct points for incorrect answers
on short answer questions.
