The regulatory exams are set and updated by the Financial Services Board's (FSB) authorised question developers, and securely saved in FSB's question bank. FPI as an examination body would then randomly draw questions from the FSB question bank and include the appropriate number of questions onto the exam papers. The question paper of each candidate is different from that of other candidates, but all questions are drawn from the same source, i.e. FSB question bank, regardless of which examination body the exam is written through.
