Certification Exam Process:

MySQL Expert Certification proves your knowledges and skills in MySQL database development and administration. Certification process consists of two parts: theoretical questions-answers test, and practice task.
Theoretical test consists of 20 single and multiple choice questions by 1.5 minutes each. You'll need to correctly answer at least 15 of 20 questions to pass the test.
Practice task is the second part of certification process. It goes after the theoretical test and you can complete it at once or later another day.
