    On the new exam report that you’ll receive at the test site, you will now find:
    • Your pass/fail outcome
    • Rating of your overall exam performance into one of four categories—above target, target, below target, needs improvement
    • Rating of your domain level performance into one of four categories—above target, target, below target, needs improvement
    The old version of the exam report rated your performance based on one of three proficiency levels:
      • Proficient
      • Moderately Proficient
      • Below Proficient
      The new version rates your performance based on one of four proficiency levels:

      • Above Target: Performance exceeds minimum requirements.
      • Target: Performance meets minimum requirements.
      • Below Target: Performance slightly below target and fails to meet minimum requirements. Additional preparation is recommended before re-examination.
      • Needs Improvement: Performance is well-below target and fails to meet minimum requirements. Additional preparation is strongly recommended before re-examination.
    The advantages of new exam result is for those who fail, it will help them prepare to retake the test. For those who pass, it will help guide their professional development.
    For more details please visit PMI: https://www.pmi.org/update-center/exam-result-report/faqs

    Hi Mukesh,

    As per above exam report, what is minimum requirement to pass? for example. 2 below target + 3 above target score in process group will be awarded certificate, OR the candidate with target score in Execution and M&C while rest of the process group with below target score can pass the exam ??

    Regards,
    Parshav

    Hi Parshav,

    The grading and results are still not disclosed by PMI. Till now whatever pass results we have seen most of them are Target or Above target in the process groups.

    Very interesting - thank you. It is very important to understand that your exam will be unique. That means that there exists out in the universe a very difficult exam and a very simple exam. I assume PMI, being very ethically driven, would not score these similarly without taking this into consideration.

    Another comment I hear over and over again - "The exam is not difficult." No, it is not. However, it is tricky. You must be comfortable with lateral thinking. You must be comfortable with best practice and be able to apply that to (often) ambiguous situations. This is the reality of our working environment, and most of the questions reflect this. You may not be able to select the best answer, and all the answers may be pretty poor - but there is still one correct answer, even if it's the "least worst".

    All of this is what makes learning the material and preparing for the exam so unique. However, it is unique, not impossible. By stretching yourself, you will be successful.
