That differs from client to client. Usually 1 year, sometimes 2 years. The expiry date is stated on your certificate.

You can leave a question open while taking the test by 'marking' it. You can then return to the highlighted question to answer it before completing the test.

That depends on the languages ​​chosen by your client or employer. In the drop down menu at the beginning of the instruction and test you can see which languages ​​you can choose from.
