The purpose of an exam category is to better organize your exams. When you create an exam, the default exam category is “General”, but you have the option to categorize your exam under any heading you would like. For example, you can create a “Marketing” exam category so that all exams you create that are related to “Marketing” can be grouped together. It also helps creating courses easier. You can select individual exams to be part of a course, or complete exam categories. For example, you might want Learners to attempt all “Marketing” exams.
