Welcome to the MEAL DPro Sample Exam.

This test is intended to allow you to practice the certification exam and get into contact with its questions (similar questions - not the same). You will be able to assess your knowledge before taking the real exam.

The test is multiple choice with 75 questions. The pass mark is 65% – or 49 correct questions. There is no ‘negative’ marking so an incorrect answer does not lose you marks.

Important notes:

  • Questions on this sample exam ARE NOT the same of the actual exam. These questions provide an overall idea of type of questions that you will find in the actual exam.
  • This is a practice exam - it is not valid as a DPro certification and it does not grant you any certificate or other document.
  • We recommend that you also take the Sample Exam at the PM4NGOs Sample Exams Platform.
  • Questions are the same, but it will help you to get familiarized with the actual certification exam platform, format, and features.
