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).
APSCA’s overall score for Part II is calculated by identifying the maximum number of points that can
be achieved on this exam and how many points were obtained by you, the Auditor. This is then
noted on the report as a %.
For multiple choice & true/false questions, each correct answer will earn 1 point. However, if an
answer is incorrect or no answer is given, not only are no points awarded but a score of 0.25 will be
deducted from the total points already received. For questions which require 2 or 3 answers, 0.25
points will be deducted for each incorrect response for that question.
