About our LPIC-2 Beta Exams (Version 4.5)
Beta exams are organized in the English language only, and will be delivered as paper based tests (PBT). Both exams, 201 and 202, each take 90 minutes and contain 60 questions. They are offered free of charge. Passing the exams for 201 and 202 in conjunction with an active LPIC-1 certification leads to the LPIC-2 certification.
In addition, beta candidates will be asked to answer a short survey and provide feedback on the exam content. For this reason, LPI Exam Development staff may visit beta exam labs to collect direct feedback from the candidates.
Candidates should be aware that beta exams cover the new version of the objectives and will contain new items. Their passed exams are counted as regular exams and can be used to achieve a certification. Failed exams can be deleted from the candidate’s profile upon request.
