AMP National Competency Examinations

The National Competency Exams were developed in collaboration with the University of British Columbia, Sauder School of Business. The exams are three hours in length and will contain both multiple choice and short- answer questions. The pass mark is 70%.

Each multiple choice question is worth one mark. Responses for the short-answer questions should be well formulated and to-the-point. However, a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ type of answer without explanation will not receive a mark.
