The MBLEx is scheduled to undergo some minor changes in July of 2014.
Although, you probably won’t even notice the changes unless you have taken the exam previously. I know you want to be as prepared as possible for your exam day, so let’s review what is going to happen.
Changes the FSMTB will implement have to do with how the MBLEx is weighted, or the number of questions you will be asked per category. Not all category percentages will be changed. I will detail these changes below.
The number of questions on the MBLEx will decrease from 125 to 100.
The amount of time allowed to complete the exam will decrease from 2 1/2 hours to 2 hours. Of this time, a maximum of five minutes is allotted to the security and confidentiality agreement and five minutes to a brief survey.
Another change has to do with how soon you can take the exam again after a failing attempt. If you do not pass the MBLEx after July 1st, you must wait thirty (30) days from the previous examination attempt before you take it again.
Before July 1st, the exam will be the same as it has been the past few years. Here are the current category percentages (until July 1st, 2014):
