After attending a two-day Certified ScrumMaster course, the final step in becoming a ScrumMaster (CSM) in Scrum is successfully passing an online CSM exam with the Scrum Alliance.

The test comprises 35 multiple-choice questions and to fulfill Scrum Master certification requirements, you must get 24 or more correct. You can take the test any time after the 2 day course. Expect the exam to last about an hour.

If you do not pass the CSM exam, you will be shown the questions you missed, but not told the right answer. You will be expected to research the right answer. If you don’t pass the test, you can take it a second time at no cost. The Scrum Alliance charges a small fee for each subsequent attempt after the second.
