Structure Of The Paper
The exam consists of three parts.
- The Scenario part contains one scenario, providing a description of the customer and the business rationale for the opportunity; the objectives of the opportunity; the bidding organizations and their history with the customer; as well as how they intend to position themselves for the opportunity.
- The Questions part contains six questions, each covering a different syllabus area, which will be clearly identified at the beginning of each question. Each of the six questions contains a number of part questions e.g. A, B or C. Each of the ‘part-questions’ will identify the portion of the examination points allocated to it. Each part question may have 3, 4, 5 or 6 question lines. Each question line within the part question attracts 1 mark, giving a total of 80 marks.
- The Answer part contains the answer pages on which the answers must be given. There is one answer page for each question (1 to 6). Usually, there will only ever be one answer to each question. However, for multiple response questions two answers are required (this will be clearly stated within the question).
Submit the Exam Application
Before you begin preparing for the exam, you will need to submit a completed Capture Practitioner Examination Application. Complete the form, then scan and submit via the APMG portal site, which is listed on the bottom of the application.
Prepare For The Exam
- Familiarize yourself with the APMP Body of Knowledge
The correct answers for the exam are supported by the information contained in the APMP Body of Knowledge (BoK) – the official reference guide for all APMP certification exams. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you take time to familiarize yourself with the information contained within the BoK.
- Use the sample examination paper to test your knowledge
As you prepare for the APMP Practitioner OTE, you are encouraged to work through the SAMPLE EXAMINATION PAPER. The sample paper is fully representative of the paper that you will be taking when you are sitting the exam itself. The syllabus areas are the same. However, the number of part questions in each of the question areas may be different.
- Feedback from the sample exam
When you take the sample exam and submit your answers, unlike for the live examination, you receive a score for each of the six questions that you answer. This score will give you an indication of your knowledge of the application of best practices in that topic area. To access the sample exam, click here.
