The latest PMP exam was rolled out by the Project Management Institute (PMI®) on January 2, 2021.

The latest (2021) PMP certification exam pattern is as follows: 

  • Number of questions: 180 (the previous exam was 200, but the same number of questions will be scored)
  • Time: 230 minutes
  • Breaks: One additional break for a total of two 10-minute breaks for computer-based tests; no scheduled breaks for paper-based exams.
  • Question type: Combination of multiple-choice, multiple responses, matching, hotspot and limited fill-in-the-blank. See prototype questions for examples.
  • Difficulty level: The questions are populated as per the difficulty level. The questions are randomized so that no two candidates will get similar questions. The easier the question, the higher the passing score determinant and the higher or tougher the question, the easier the passing score. 
  • Domains covered: While the old exam focused mainly on the stages of a project, the new one encompasses everything and everyone involved, namely:

  1. PEOPLE – 42% of items on the exam, emphasizing the skills and activities associated with effectively leading a project team. 
  2. PROCESS – 50% of items on the exam, reinforcing the technical aspects of managing a project.
  3. BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – 8% of items on the exam, highlighting the connection between projects and organization strategy.

The exam will include content that spans the value delivery spectrum, including predictive, agile and hybrid approaches.

The new examination blueprint detailing the percentage of questions contained in each project management process group is as follows: 

  • People: 42%  
  • Process: 50% 
  • Business Environment: 8% 

More details can be found in the PMP New Examination Content Outline – Jan 2021 

PMI® rolled out new changes to the PMP exam based on thorough research into how the project management profession has evolved since the last changes made in 2015. Three significant changes include:

1. PMP Exam Format

The new exam is comprised of 180 questions, which need to be answered within 230 minutes (one additional break for a total of two 10-minute breaks for computer-based tests; no scheduled breaks for paper-based exams). Questions will be a combination of multiple-choice, multiple responses, matching, hotspot and limited fill-in-the-blank.

2. PMP Exam Content

While the old exam focused mainly on the stages of a project, the new one encompasses everything and everyone involved, namely:

PEOPLE – 42% of items on the exam, emphasizing the skills and activities associated with effectively leading a project team. 

PROCESS – 50% of items on the exam, reinforcing the technical aspects of managing a project.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – 8% of items on the exam, highlighting the connection between projects and organization strategy.

PMI takes about 5 days to carry out an Application Completeness Review. If selected for the audit process, you will have 90 days to submit your audit materials. PMI processes audit materials within 5 to 7 days.  

There is no re-evaluation for the PMP exam. However, if you fail you can attend the exam again. Ensure that you use the remaining two attempts within a year of your eligibility period. If you don’t, you cannot fill the PMP exam application form for a year. If you still fail the remaining two attempts, you have to wait for a year from your last exam attempt before you can re-apply and write the exam. 

You can retake the exam if you fail, provided your next attempt is within your eligibility period of 1 year.

If you have already passed the test, you will not be able to take it again to receive a better score.   

Your web-based exam results will be visible to you immediately upon completion of the exam.  

You can attempt the exam a maximum of 3 times within your eligibility period of 1 year.

Yes, PMI has published official samples of the latest 2021 PMP Exam. Refer prototype questions for examples.
