LPIC-2 exam Details


I am planning to take the LPIC-2 next week. Does anyone know how many questions will be there and whats the minimum score you need to pass. I got the exam objectives and weight but not those information. Also checked their site but found nothing.

Is it same like Linux+, total 60 questions with pass mark of 500.

thanks, got it.

As of April 1, 2009, all exam weights for LPI exams have been standardized to 60 weights. The 301 exam is a current exception with 50 weights.

Regardless of weight totals each exam score is between 200 and 800. A passing score is 500. However, the number of correct questions required to achieve a score of 500 varies with the overall difficulty of the specific exam that is taken.

The number of questions on the exam is also tied to the total of the weights of the objectives on the exam. With a total weight count of 60, the exam will have 60 questions. For each weighting, there will be one question. For example, if an objective has a weight of 4, there will be 4 questions on the exam related to the objective.
