i think you need to score about an 85% on the test to pass. so yeah, i think its about 15-18 questions as well that you can get wrong. Dont take this test until you are ready for it.
I believe there are no weighted questions on Security+
It is out of 900 possible points, at about 9 points per question.
You need a 764 to pass, IE about 85%.
I marked 9 questions when I took the test and got an 820. This is right on track for 9 points out of 900 per question.
So that being the case it would seem if you miss any more than 15 you will not pass.
Here's my advice. Dont concentrate so much on these percentages and number of questions. Focus on mastering the objectives and you'll be fine.
