I wanted to share an announcement that (ISC)² just made regarding the SSCP.
Starting November 1, we will be adding 25 additional pre-test items to the exam. Those item don't count toward your overall score, but you won't know which items are the "pre-test" versus the scored items, so treat every item as if it were counting. To allow enough time for these additional questions, we've extended the exam time limit to four hours.
Again, this change won't start until November 1. Another change starting that day is new language availability for the exam! Right now, the SSCP exam is only available in English and Japanese. Starting in November, you'll be able to take it in Chinese, Korean, German or Spanish as well!
Wishing you luck as you prepare for your exam. Thank you for being part of the (ISC)² Community!
