LLQP Exam Pilot Questions

Five pilot questions have been added to every existing LLQP exam format and are to be answered within the 75-minute time frame. Pilot questions are excluded from candidates’ final score. In order to ensure the pilot questions are answered earnestly and valid data can be gathered, candidates will not be informed of the position of said questions. More information regarding the pilot testing can be found here.

Examination Fees

Examination fees are applicable to each examination registration, including rewrites.
Failure to attend at a scheduled examination will result in the forfeiture of the exam fee.
