This is what CQE Computer based exam states

Computer Delivered - The CQE examination is a one-part, 175- multiple choice question, five-and-a-half-hour exam and is offered in English only. 160 multiple choice questions are scored and 15 are unscored.

What does "15 are unscored" mean? Like they will not consider 15 questions you answer wrong out of 175?

Hi Darshan - It's explained in the FAQ's on the cert page.  Hope this helps

https://asq.org/cert/faq/number-of-questions:

ASQ certification exams delivered via CBT consist of 85 - 175 multiple-choice questions. Of the total questions presented to candidates, 10-15% are considered pretest questions. Pretest questions do not affect the score but are used in examinations as an effective and legitimate way to test the validity of future examination questions. All questions are randomly placed throughout the examination. These questions will be presented in addition to the number of questions defined in each unique program's Body of Knowledge. The pre-test questions will cover all areas of the Body of Knowledge for each program.
