Introducing the Symfony 7 Certification
Symfony 7 was released at the end of November 2023, alongside Symfony 6.4.
Both versions share the exact same features, but Symfony 7.0 gets rid of all the
deprecated features and requires PHP 8.2 or higher.
Today, we’re introducing the new certification exam for Symfony 7. The exam
duration and structure is the same as previous exams. The list of topics is also
similar to the previous Symfony 6 exam.
That’s because the certification exam focuses on the core concepts of Symfony
and those haven’t changed. However, the actual questions are different because
we’ve removed many questions, added new ones and updated the rest of questions
to use the latest Symfony practices.
We’ve also simplified some topics to focus on the most popular practices of
Symfony developers. For example, we no longer include questions that use XML
or PHP to configure services, routes, etc. In the new exam, the configuration of
all questions use either YAML or PHP attributes.
This is how the Symfony exam certification works:
You can take the exam up to one year after purchasing a certification voucher;
The exam is taken online, from the comfort of your home or office;
Some basic rules are enforced during the exam to avoid cheating;
The exam lasts 90 minutes and includes 75 questions divided into 15 topics;
Question types: single choice, multiple choice and true/false (there are
no open ended questions and you don’t need to write code samples);
There are two certification levels: „advanced“ and „expert„, depending on your score.
