This exam uses a scaled score, meaning it doesn’t correspond to an exact percentage of correctly answered questions. Passing percentages can vary slightly from one exam to another based on the questions included in each new administration. The test makers use a scaled score system to ensure that the scoring of the exams is fair even when the questions change.

Generally speaking, you can expect to receive a passing score if you answer at least 70% of the questions correctly.
