More for my curiosity than anything else, but I was curious to know what percentages correspond with proficiency levels on the simulator (and the exam if anyone happened to know this closely guarded secret!)
I've been doing practice quizzes based on the knowledge areas that I've been lacking in, and consistently hitting in the 70% range (getting better!) and my score shows as below proficient. This has me concerned for the exam! I've got a few more weeks to study and practice but I'm curious to know a bit more about it.
Is the proficiency measured based on a pure percentage, or does it also factor in the difficulty of the questions?
First PMI evaluation level (BP, M or P) is different from the simulator because no-one knows the passed score of PMI. Some simulators consider 80% as passed score and 90% as P and 80% M.
For the exam get well prepared and if you could score consistently 80% with new questions you are good to go.
