Hello,

Does PMI consider Flagged questions on the PMP exam into consideration when we submit at the end of the exam?
Just want to check as we are taking in Pearson.

Please advice.

Regards,
Archana

Archana,

"Flagged" (also called "Marked") questions do NOT affect your score in any way at all. It is simply a tool that allows you to easily return to those questions where you want to take a second look.

I just took my exam today and i was running out of time so decide to quickly review and de-mark flagged question and go to exit the exam . The computer gave a notification if i wanted to exit the flagged question page i said yes , it asked me for a second time (but i did not fully read it )and clicked yes , the a final notification came in succession to end the exam and I clicked yes . I failed the exam . I was surprised because I found all the question to be easy
There were lots of remaining flagged question, and I also though maybe that could be a reason . I guess I should give some more money to PMP and take it again

All,

Allow me to repeat my statement from earlier:

"Flagged" (also called "Marked") questions do NOT affect your score in any way at all. It is simply a tool that allows you to easily return to those questions where you want to take a second look.

However, since nobody seems to believe what I say, I have gone ahead and I have contacted PMI Certifications and asked them for an official statement in this matter. I will publish this here once I receive it.

Hello Chaudry,
Last week took the PMP exam. I can definitely say that "Flagged questions do not affect your score all ".
I have flagged at least 150 questions in the exam and passed. Flagging is just for your review.

THANK YOU ARCHANA!

I've been saying this all along but somehow this "myth" keeps sticking around.

I feel like I'm talking to a group of flat earthers here... :silly:

Here is the official statement from PMI in this matter. It was provided by Sierra Hampton-Simmons who is the Portfolio Lead / Head of Certifications at PMI. She has the overall responsibility for all of PMI's certifications:

Hi Cornelius. I can confirm that marking a question does not in any way interact with the scoring engine. If an item is marked it is only, as you mentioned, to enable a candidate to return to it later and review it. If an item is marked and then left unmarked it will still get scored. Scoring will run regardless of an item being marked. The scoring engine doesn't skip any of the items.



And that answers it once and for all.
