ISTQB® exams are designed and monitored according to strict, internationally consistent, criteria. They are based on a precisely defined number of questions, varying depending on certification level, and a distribution of questions across the syllabi, according to topics and K-Levels. The global pass-rate of ISTQB® exams (world-wide average since inception) as of March 2013 is reported here http://www.istqb.org/exams-root.html
Each year the ISTQB® awards a prize to somebody who is recognised as having made an outstanding contribution to the field of software quality through professional practice, innovation, or research. The next winner will be announced in Lisbon, Portugal, in November. For more information please visit http://awards.istqb.org/.
