Hi All!

Does Anybody know whether there is any difference in Construction Electrician Examination, when doing from different locations as Toronto, Barrie, Missasauga etc.

Y I'm asking is, some of my friends done this exam from different locations got different durations for the exam (some 3 Hrs, some 3 hrs & 30 minutes)

Also I heard that the toughness of the questions are of varying degrees in different locations.

Isn't the exam done by the Govt. and the standard / time etc are same ?

It's been a long time since I wrote exam but what I hear is:

There are numerous versions of the exam to make copying difficult.
Therefore it is possible that the toughness of the exam's would change also (luck of the draw I guess)

As far as the Gov. standards, Yes there is a "minimum".

I am sure they base the exam time limit on a per/question time allocation, therefore some exam's my be slightly shorter.

Just a guess
