PMP Passing Scores & Averages
The way PMP examinations are scored vary based on the test performance. There are
200 questions on each PMP exam, and depending how you do, you will receive a generated
“pass/fail” result score
After the “pass/fail” scoring result has been decided, the second level of scoring
results breaks down your performance throughout each Process Group into one of the
following three categories: Proficient, Moderately Proficient, or Below Proficient.
Your passing score is based on how you rank in each of the five Process Groups,
compared to average global rankings of other test takers and project management
professionals. This is to ensure that the exam is fair as well as a way to provide
global project management statistics and overall industry knowledge assessments.
The recent global average of a passing score was dropped from 141 proficient answers
to 106, as PMI (Project Management Institute) adjusted the test to make it a fairer
assessment of professional skills.
