When you come on one of our PRINCE2 Training courses, you’ll take the relevant exam on the final day (or days 3 and 5 if you do the complete PRINCE2 Practitioner course). As well as providing the kind of training that ensures you can implement your new knowledge as soon as you return to work, we provide guidance like this to help you get through that ever-important exam.
We are so confident that you’ll pass your exam that we offer a PRINCE2 exam guarantee! If you happen not to pass first time around (although our pass rates are far above the national average), you can resit the training for free, and just pay for the exam!
Here are our Top Tips for Passing the PRINCE2 exam
1. Do your pre-course reading
You can start preparing from the exam before you even begin the course, by completing your pre-course reading from the PRINCE2 manual!
The reason we provide the resources in advance is to make sure you have a foundation of knowledge when you begin, so your time with the trainer can be spent focused on developing this knowledge via real-world applications and case studies. The five-day PRINCE2 Practitioner course is intensive, so the more pre-reading you have completed the more you will be able to take in during the course.
2. Annotate the manual
To get another perspective, read through our PRINCE2 blog. We’ve covered many of the subjects that you’ve learned about on the course, but hearing the same topics in a different voice can be a valuable learning tool. You can add your notes and insights from this into the manual.
The PRINCE2 exams are open book, which means you can use your PRINCE2 manual (but no other documents or notes). What you can do is put notes all over your PRINCE2 manual and that’s allowed! So whether it’s a diagram or a one word memory trigger, use the white spaces in the manual to add your notes.
