Can anybody feed us by even a rough estimate about the percentage of candidates passing the Exam from 1st time and of the percentage passing it on the 2nd time? actually those figures will help to estimate the real difficulty of the exam and may raise our moral :cheer:

I spent a few minutes looking this up and there is no published data that I see that gives this information. The PMI would be the only one that has this information, along with what is the true passing percentage for the exam. The only statistic I did see was in an FAQ, on another website that used a "Best Guesses" from other PMI Training Organizations and came up 60% passing on their first attempt. It was based on a "Best Guess", with no other supporting footnotes or sources.

Good luck with your studies

Our PM Exam Simulator offers this to paying customers on the "My Statistics >> Exam Feedback" page. Here you can see how people reported their exam success back to us.

On a very high level... if their score in the simulator was between 80-90% then 94% of our users report that they passed their exam in the first attempt.
