# Amount Incorrect - Estimates

Well I’ve been reading through my notes and comparing that to the exam… fortunately, I’ve only identified 32 that I got wrong out of the 240. So that leaves me with a margin of 40 other incorrect answers… how did everyone else do?

I don’t even remember enough exam questions/answers to compare! Some obvious and dumb mistakes i do recall but i’m sure i made many more mistakes…hopefully though less than 70

so if we score abt 50 to 60 questions wrong, out of 240…do we stand a chance to pass ??? please tell me…i did some stupid mistakes …where i knew the answer but was too under pressure to tick the right one…damn…suppose if i get arnd 50 to 60 answers wrong…can i hope to pass ??

well 168 / 240 = 70%. You can get 72 questions wrong to get exactly a 70, and pass.

but some 1 told me that watever it is…u have to be in the top 35% scorers to pass…even if that is 80%???

We need a sticky on the exam scoring so badly. Nobody knows what the pass rate is going to be in advance. It could be anywhere from 25% to 50%. Just think of the passing rate @ 70 and if it’s lower, just consider that gravy.

It has been generally assumed that 70% will pass the exam. I’ll estimate I got maybe 30-40 incorrect. I felt very good leaving the exam, and am still very confident.

They can’t possibly know the pass rate yet. Look up the agnoff method on Wikipedia, that will clear up things for you. Also, 72 questions between 2 exams is a lot of wrong answers. I am sure everyone on this forum was under that amount.

In regards to the pass rate, do they calculate scores of people who do not actually sit for the exam? There were a lot of empty seats in NYC…

I’m pretty sure no shows are removed from the pass rate percentage.

I think I scored 87% on AM, 85% on PM. That assumes all questions I marked as iffy I got wrong. Since I have a 1/3 chance of getting those right and because I’m sure I made some mistakes on others that I thought I got right, I think it’s a fair assessment. In Atlanta there were a lot of empty seats but I couldn’t tell if the room was just bigger than expected (and thus they had empty seats available) or if there were a lot of no-shows.

wow an 87 and 85. You killed it. Don’t be surprised if you failed.

That was kind of a low blow. I didn’t know the answer to 12 questions in the morning but know I got at least 95% on the others and about the same in the afternoon. I can tell you with certainty that I passed and will probably end up >70% in all sections, but people still miss some. Scoring 87% and 85% and knowing you got that means you passed.

75ish, I’m gonna be a borderline for sure. I know of 10 I missed for sure. Unfortunately I know of 3 ethics qs I missed of that 10 so I really hope I nailed the rest of that sectoin so it will push me over the edge.

Obviously there were some I got wrong, but there aren’t any that I know I got wrong. On top of that, there wasn’t any I even guessed at (i.e. no clue), and even then only 30 or so that my answer was based on an educated guess. The fear comes from wondering how many of the ones you know you got right, that you actually got wrong. However, I’m very confident that I passed, and that the majority of the people on this board did the same.

I am def going by a small sample but a lot of people at the exam that i took in (Boston) had no clue what they were getting themselves into…ie i had atleast three people ask me what ratio items were…such as the dupont model…

chung, agree with you. guy sitting next to me had the material down cold, but two or three around us were clueless. one finished pm session within 30 minutes and left. i think a lot of people underestimated the amount of material and signed up in the last few months. hopefully that skews passing score for those of us who put in the work.
