Microsoft exam result and score report

Minimum score to pass an exam

When you take a Microsft exam you need to go over a minimum passing score. For technical exam the score is 700, for Office exams the minimum passing score depends on the specific exam.

The scale is 1 to 1000, where 1 define the lowest score and 1000 the highest score.

How the score is determined

The points are not directly related to the percent. By instance, 700 is not corresponding to 70% of the answers. Points are scored based on the difficult and on the complexity of the question.

The good side is that you do not get any penalty if you made a mistake. If you think one answer is better than another, just go for it! Is better to answer wrong than to not answer at all.

When the exam is scored

You will see your score immediately after the exam is finished. The score will be available in the PearsonVue and Microsoft portal within 24 hours.

The only exeption is about beta exam. In case of beta exam, the score is available about 10 days after the official release of the exam.
