Beginning this month, when the BCEFP 2015 exam goes to beta, we will have a new policy for our beta exams. In the past, we allowed candidates to take the exams for free, and we set a cap of 150. Unfortunately, with our most recent beta exams, a trend has become alarmingly large. We had a no-show rate of 30-35% for the past few exams. This means people that could not make the exam, did not cancel within the 24-hour window Pearson VUE requires. It also means that valuable limited slots were wasted, when perhaps others that were more serious about the exams, could have participated. We will now raise the cap on beta exams to 300, but worldwide, we will be charging $20 for the exam. Beta exams may still only be taken once, and will still require a special promo code to get the exam at the $20 price. Details about the next beta exam will be posted soon.
