The IGBC AP Exam is a credential for professionals who want to participate in green building projects in India. The exam tests the knowledge of candidates on green building design and construction, based on the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) rating systems. Here are some tips on how to prepare for the exam:
Review the exam eligibility, fee, location, frequency, structure and content on the IGBC website[^4^]. You need to have at least 2 years of work experience in the building industry to take the exam.
Register for the exam online through your IGBC account and pay the fee of 5,000/- (excluding GST). You can choose any compatible laptop or desktop to take the exam online in remote proctoring mode. The exam is offered twice a month (1st and 3rd Saturday) and you will receive the login details and instructions 5 days before the exam date.
Study the suggested material for reading on the IGBC website[^4^], which includes IGBC rating systems, reference guides, case studies, webinars and newsletters. You can also download some free PDF files from Scribd[^1^] or Scribd[^3^] that contain IGBC study material.
Practice with mock exams and sample questions to familiarize yourself with the exam format and difficulty level. You can enroll in an online IGBC AP exam prep course from GBRI Online[^5^] that offers a simulated mock exam for free. You can also find some sample questions on Green Building Academy or SlideShare.
Review your results and feedback after taking the mock exams and identify your strengths and weaknesses. Focus on improving your weak areas and revising your concepts. You can also join online forums or groups to discuss your doubts and queries with other candidates or experts.
Prepare yourself mentally and physically for the exam day. Get enough sleep, eat well, stay hydrated and relax. Read the instructions carefully before starting the exam and manage your time wisely. You will get 2 hours to answer 110 multiple-choice questions. You need to score at least 70% to pass the exam.
Celebrate your success after passing the exam. You will receive your scorecard immediately after completing the exam and a formal certificate within 3 working days. You will also be listed on the IGBC website as an IGBC Accredited Professional and be eligible to participate in green building projects registered under IGBC rating programmes.
