I cannot find this essential piece of information anywhere. I just tried the exam, and failed it with a score of 75%. However, there seems to be no information anywhere on what the pass mark is. Is it 100% perhaps?

The passmark is much higher Jul 7, 2007

For the certification exam the passmark is 35/40 - this means you need to get 35 points from all four parts (possible points are 40). Makes 87,5% - passing the exam is really a tough job.

Wow, that is high! Jul 7, 2007

Thanks for the information, Jerzy!

At school the pass mark for exams was 50%, and at university it was 60%. 87.5% is really tough!

Best regards,

Astrid
