In our experience, writing the questions was the easy (albeit 
time-consuming) part. In terms of process, the most difficult bits were:

1. raising sufficient funds to cover initial costs

2. marketing awareness of the exam and its value

3. managing volunteers (i.e. finding people with the time and skills when 

4. creating a core group that understands the reason for creating the exam 
and keeps to that mission

In terms of what surprised me the most, it was definitely the amount of time 
it takes to get things done. Once you have your time estimates, multiply by 
5 and that should be closer to the reality.
