The new PMP exam starts on the 31st August. PMI are strongly encouraging PMP candidates who have prepared for the current exam to schedule their exam on or before 30 August.
Following the change to the new exam, there will be a 4–6 week period between taking the examination and the candidate receiving their results via email. This delay is necessary for PMI to validate the new examination structure.
All candidates can expect to receive their examination results by mid-October and once the new examination has been validated, the results will be available at the Prometric examination centres on completion of an exam, as now.
As part of the exam change, the PMP experience reporting requirements are being simplified. Currently, PMI requires candidates to track and report their hours of experience leading and directing projects for each task within the Role Delineation Study (RDS). From 31st August, candidates will only need to track and report their hours for each domain (Process Group) within the RDS. Any candidates who have an application in progress at the time the change is made will have their experience hours migrated to the new application, so that no data will be lost.
