how many unscored items are there?

The number of unscored items varies between 2 and 6.

On my 70-272 exam I only had 2 unscored questions.

I thought candidates won't be able to know the precise number of unscored items, as there is no indication anywhere. :

There were 2 of us doing the 70-271 and 70-272 exams, after that it was just a simple matter of arithmetics to figure it out.

We both had different scores on both exams so it was easy to find out the weight of each question.

I fyou both had different scores than that could mean that one of you got a different amout of questions right or wrong. in order to know the weighting you would both have to of had identical answers throughout.

In addition, the questions on one exam are different to the next... my understanding is that the questions are pulled for each objective from a large pool of questions, so the likelyhood of you and your buddy getting identical exams would probably be a near impossibility.

You can't tell which exam questions are scored and which are not... and I'd like to see anything official from Microsoft that states the number being between 2 and 6. If anyone has any official information, it would be great to hear it.

Take Care,
