How The PMP® Exam Is Scored?

The current PMP® exam content includes 5 parts, each of which tests your competence in a variety of skill areas. For each skill area, the exam also tests your ability, knowledge and understanding that are required of industry-standard project managers. Remember that the new exam content is now published, so keep yourself up-to-date with the changes. The exam consists of 175 scored questions and 25 unscored questions as pretest questions to monitor the question performance better. Unanswered questions are marked as incorrect, so try to answer all of the questions.


The fail rate for the PMP® exam is quite remarkable at an estimate of 40-50% for test-takers at the first attempt. You don’t need to answer correctly a specific number of questions to pass the exam. Actually, each question is marked in accordance with its relative difficulty, which means that if you get all the easy answers right but all the difficult ones are wrong, then you can fail the exam.

All you can do is to get as many right answers as possible. The best plan is to prepare with thorough study through quality materials. Moreover, make sure that you’ve familiarized yourself with the questions and type of the content that are likely to show up in the exam by taking several practice exams.

You can also register for a prep course that offers guarantee or a supporting plan so that you will have access to additional assistance in case you fail the test. If you don’t pass the exam at your first attempt, you have two more chances within a year to re-take the exam. Unless you pass the exam after a maximum of 3 attempts in a year, you must wait for 1 year to sit for the test again.
