The Professional Scrum Master (PSM I or PSM 1) certification validates your knowledge of the Scrum framework, the Scrum Master accountabilities and how to apply Scrum.

PSM I is recognized by the industry as a certification that demonstrates a fundamental level of Scrum mastery. As a PSM I certification holder, you have proven that you understand Scrum as described in the Scrum Guide and how to apply Scrum in Scrum Teams. PSM I holders have a consistent terminology and approach to Scrum.

The Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) assessment is a 60 minute time boxed assessment where you’ll answer 80 questions (in English) of multiple choice type with 85% Passing Score i.e 68 Answers correct, very similar in style to the Scrum Open assessment.

You get one attempt and you decide when and where to take it. There’s no expiration date. You are not required to attend an assessment centre and can take it from the comfort of your own home.$150 is the cost of the exam which can be paid online.

Our practice exams are designed to help candidates prepare for the actual certification exam. A mock exam consists of questions and answers that are similar in style, format, and difficulty level to those found in the real certification exam.

Here are some tips that can help you prepare for and pass the certification exam:

Understand the exam objectives: The exam objectives provide a detailed breakdown of the topics that will be covered on the exam. Make sure you understand each objective and are familiar with the tools and techniques used in each area.

Take practice exams: Practice exams are an excellent way to assess your knowledge and identify areas where you need to improve. You can practice our practice tests as many as you want until pass all the test with 85%.

Study the exam materials: The official exam study guide is a valuable resource that can help you prepare for the exam. It covers all the exam objectives and provides examples and scenarios to help you understand how the concepts apply in real-world situations.

Familiarize yourself with the exam format: Understanding the format of the exam can help you manage your time effectively and reduce stress during the exam. Familiarize yourself with the types of questions and the amount of time you will have to complete each section.

Practice good test-taking strategies: Make sure you read the questions carefully, eliminate obviously wrong answers, and manage your time effectively during the exam. Don’t spend too much time on a single question and make sure you answer all questions before the time is up.

The PSM1 exam is taken online and you only have 60 minutes to attempt 80 questions. You must have at least 68 correct answers to pass the exam. You ideally get 45 sec per Question. It is essential to be as familiarized as possible with these concepts as time is limited and many candidates end up leaving some questions unanswered.

Stable internet connection: The exam is online so make sure that you have a stable internet connection. Attempt the exam in the most stable internet connection hour of the day.

Choose a peaceful time slot: The more relaxed you are with the least amount of distractions will result in better exam scores. Find the best time for yourself.

Read questions carefully: Many multiple choice questions seem similar when you read them too quickly.

Beware of word tricks: Some very common tricks used in the exam learn to differentiate between the two: should vs could or attend vs participating.

Use a Timer: Use a timer when doing your practice exams. This will ensure you are able to answer all the questions within the limited amount of time.

Mark the confusing question: If you get stuck in answering a question skip it for the time being. To save time and energy, mark confusing questions on the separate paper (you do not have question flag option in exam)and attempt them later.

Be careful with multiple answer questions: some questions ask you to choose multiple answers, and some people just don’t pay enough attention and pick one answer. All multiple answer questions use check-boxes instead of radio-buttons; get used to paying attention to this as a double check. It’s a good idea to spend a few minutes at the end of the exam.

Decide on one reliable resource for help: Plan which guides you are going to use as a reference beforehand and decide on only one or two resources. Either it’s your own notes of confusing topics or a reliable Scrum guide.

Don’t search the answers online :- There is very little chance that you will find the Questions online. In some cases, you might also find the questions but with totally different options, However, you will lose your crucial time . Losing a couple of minutes for 1–2 answers also may cost you later.

Final 10 mins :- Try to complete the exam in 50 mins , which will give you last 10 mins to recheck all your questions and also to reconfirm the confusing questions
