Is it a myth or its true?

Myth: You need to score a 61% to pass the PMP® Exam. Is it true of false?

No, while this was true at one time, it is no longer the case. Passing the PMP® Exam is no longer determined by the percentage of questions you answer correctly. It is calculated using a sound psychometric analysis. In essence this means that the harder questions are worth more than the easier questions. So you get a higher score if you answer more of the harder questions correctly and a lower score if you answer more of the easier questions correctly. The minimum score needed to pass is determined by the overall difficultly of your individual exam.

Hi namita - so is it that you just need 61% to pass the exam. Sounds a little strange? Just double checking though.

Its true that PMP is evaluated on psychometric measures and no one knows how they do and how they weight questions ;)
