Each Exam section is delivered in five smaller sections called testlets. These testlets feature multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and task-based simulations (TBSs).

In the case of BEC, you also have to complete three written communication tasks (WCTs). The number of MCQs and TBSs tested varies depending upon the specific section taken. You will receive at least one research question (research-oriented TBS) in the AUD, FAR and REG sections. To complete them, you will have to search the related authoritative literature and find an appropriate reference.
