Are all domains graded in the UK/EU

Hey guys,

I just got my MSc InfoSec results from uni and I passed , so I was looking into the next journey which will be my CISSP

Now I recall reading somewhere that the law domain is not graded in the UK/EU. Now I am not sure if I read this right or whether it was even for the CISSP exam.

Can someone confirm?

Cheers

*edit I've got the Official Guide and the AIO Shon Harris book- but I think these are not what I need right now- a lot of the MSc info is fresh in my head so I really just want to use the CISSP Study Guide 2012 book, Youtube videos and some exams from CCURE. I hope this plan of attack is OK. I am aiming for about 6 months worth of studies

    All 10 domains are graded in the exam.

    Several years ago I heard that non-US CISSP exams omit some of the law/ethics questions, making the exam shorter, but still graded on the same scale.

    When I sat the exam in the UK last year there was law\ethics questions and the exam had the same amount of questions and time as US exam.

    It might be exams administered in Asia, or in non-English, that are abbreviated.

    When I took my paper exam, I did choose the French (Canadian) version. It turned out to be bilingual. You have the English questions in one page and the French translation in the other page. I read the first question in French and forget about it. The translation is bad. It's like Google translation. So I did the whole exam in English. Even if I'm sitting the exam in Canada, all the law-related questions are US based.
