Multi-Response Questions

Since 2019, all IBF exams will come with Multiple-Response questions. They are questions which require you to select all options that apply (with a hint what's the maximum you should choose). Such questions are more difficult than those that come with 4 fixed combinations (e.g. "I & II only", "II, III, IV").

Our content include multi-response questions as well as scenario-based questions similar to the real exams.
