After the Exam
All the questions have the same weight. Based on that, note that your score is calculated by using the following formula to get the score as a percentage:
SCORE=(Number of your correct answers / Number of the questions included in the exam) * 100
For example, if the exam has 50 questions, and you have answered correctly 40 questions, your score is: (40 / 50) * 100 = 80%
This score is the one used to determine if you have passed the exam.
For Professional Certification exams, you will receive an email with your exam results, no later than two weeks after you complete and submit your exam.
