Hi y'all, I'm looking to take my CAPM certification exam soon. What score did you earn on the PrepCast Exams to pass CAPM? Is there a percentile on the PrepCast exams that typically leads to an average or above average score on CAPM?

Hi Sarah,
Our support team has contacted you directly to address your question and I'm posting the reply in case you missed it:

==================
Hello Sarah,

We saw your post in the forum.

Our rule of thumb is: If you consistently correctly answer 75% or more questions on your first attempt (i.e. when you answer an exam simulator question that you have never seen before), you can consider yourself to be ready to sit for the real PMI® exam. This rule is, of course, only a generalization. Everyone is different. There is no guarantee that attaining passing or high scores in The PM Exam Simulator ensures that you will pass the actual certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® Exam.

The PM Exam Simulator for CAPM

Passing Score
  • Pass = 75% and above
  • Fail = Less than 75%
Performance Ratings
  • Needs Improvement: The number of questions you answered correctly is less than 65%. Your performance is far below the target and fails to meet the minimum requirements for this exam. Additional preparation is strongly recommended before re-examination.
  • Below target: The number of questions you answered correctly is between 65% and 70%. Your performance meets the minimum requirements for this exam.
  • Target: The number of questions you answered correctly is between 70% and 75%. Your performance exceeds the minimum requirements for this exam.
  • Above Target: The number of questions you answered correctly is between 75% and 100%. Your performance exceeds the minimum requirements for this exam.

Hi there,

I've recently taken three practice exams and received scores of 81, 77 and 75.

These are technically passing scores in your system but in them all I received "needs improvement" ratings for some chapters.
If I am taking my exam shortly is this something I should be concerned about or is the overall score more reflective of how ready I am?

Thank you!
