Multi-Response Questions

Since 2019, all IBF exams will come with Multiple-Response questions. They are questions which require you to choose more than one option (with a hint what's the maximum you should choose) in order to score correctly. This means there will no longer be 4 fixed combinations for you to choose (e.g. "I & II only", "II, III, IV"). Click here to read IBF's exam FAQ.
