Tests are only carried out at CITB’s approved test centres, and a score of at least 90% is required to pass. This means you would need to answer 45 of the questions correctly. Statistically, most candidates who fail the CITB test did not prepare in advance by revising the material. It is very important to study in advance of your CITB test.
