# Passed 801 Today - Question about Scoring

Member Posts: 121
Today, I passed my 220-801 with an 813 when the passing score was 675. It says it was scaled on a score between 100 and 900.

What exactly does this mean? I was trying to figure out the % I received.

to get the percent simply divide 813/900, you'll find you got 90% (I got the same score last week ), Great job, and best of luck on the 802.

Also, no one knows the details on the scale exactly, exams have different numbers of questions, between 80-90, some questions are not scored at all, and in the end they simply give you the score, and what sections you missed questions in. They're yet to provide more info on their scoring system, but we assume questions have weighted point values, and they add up the correct questions based on their weights to provide the final score.

Oh I guess it's pretty simple then, lol. The line that says "scaled on a score of 100 and 900" confused me.

Thank you very much for the reply and the information!

Wouldn't you do (813-100)/800 since the lowest possible score is 100?

This would account for the extra hundred points or so that are missing at the start of the range...not really sure what the point of starting a scoring system halfway up a number line is though....:)

the simple answer is you get 100 points for trying, so as soon as you book and sit the exam, you get 100 points

the only way to get 0 is to be MIA....
