Questions are categorized into five difficulty levels from 1 to 5; 1 being the easiest and 5 being the toughest.
Each part of the exam starts with a difficulty level 1 question.
If a candidate answers a question of difficulty level 1 to 4 correctly, the difficulty level of the subsequent question will be increased by 1.
Similarly, if a candidate answers a question of difficulty level 2 to 5 incorrectly, the difficulty level of the subsequent question will be decreased by 1.
However, answering a difficulty level 5 questions correctly or a difficulty level 1 question incorrectly will not change the difficulty level of the subsequent question.

CBT scores range from 0 to 2220, 0 being the score for attempting all the questions and answering all of them incorrectly and 2220 being the score for answering all the questions correctly.
A difficulty level 1 question effectively carries a score of 11. The score increases by 2 for each of the higher difficulty level.
