How long is the Child Neurology MOC Exam?

The Child Neurology Recertification Exam is a computer-based exam consisting of 229 multiple-choice questions (MCQ) administered in four sections with 40-60 questions in each section. The exam lasts approximately 5 hours including optional breaks between each section. See the Instructions for the 2017 Child Neurology Maintenance of Certification Examination for the examination delivery structure. ABPN MOC examinations have pass rates of about 95%.

Child Neurology Maintenance of Certification Exam Question Format:

There are two types of MCQ formats: stand-alone and vignette questions

Stand-alone questions are single best answer MCQ’s that are not associated with any other questions. These questions can be flagged for review or skipped. However, candidates cannot review questions in a section that has been completed.

Vignette questions are linked to a common case that may be presented in either a short video clip (30 seconds to 3 minutes), or in text. Vignette questions must be answered in order to advance to the next question. Therefore, candidates can not skip vignette questions or review vignette questions after they have been completely answered.

In addition to the BoardVitals practice questions, it is recommended candidates familiarize themselves with the examination functions by reviewing Sample Screens provided by the ABPN.
