Welcome to Cloud Academy's preparation exam for the SysOps Administrator - Associate for AWS (2018), which prepares you for the questions and the timed environment of the actual exam. Before starting this exam, we want to make clear this exam is modeled after the recent update AWS made in 2018, which focuses on slightly different areas of knowledge.

This prep exam has the same number of multiple-choice questions (65) as the AWS SysOps Administrator - Associate exam, with the same allotted time for completion (130 minutes). Like the actual exam, some questions have one correct answer, while others require you to choose two or three correct answers. 

The questions on this exam focus on the following domains:

  • Monitoring and Reporting
  • High Availability
  • Deployment and Provisioning
  • Storage and Data Management
  • Security and Compliance
  • Networking
  • Automation and Optimization

Each domain has the same level of emphasis as it will within the official exam.

Exam Score

In order to pass this prep exam, you will need both of the following:

  • A minimum score of 72 percent on the overall exam
  • A minimum score of 35 percent on each exam domain

Completing the Exam:

You can spend as long as you wish on any particular question but must budget your time to complete all the questions. Any questions not completed in the allotted time will be scored as incorrect.

During the session, you may skip questions and return to them later in the session. You can also review your answers to previous questions, and change them at any point during the exam session.

You can end your exam session by submitting your exam for a score, or by discarding your exam.

Submitting Your Exam

You may submit your exam at any time by clicking "Submit Exam" and confirming your choice. Once confirmed, this completes the entire exam session. All of your answers will be scored, and your Skill Score will be updated. All unanswered questions will be scored as incorrect. You cannot return later to complete any unanswered questions.

Discarding Your Exam

You may discard your exam at any time by clicking "Discard Exam" and confirming your choice. Once confirmed, your exam session will be closed without saving your exam progress. None of your answers will be scored, and your Skill Score will not be updated. When you return to complete the exam, you will begin an entirely new exam session which may include new exam questions.
