Is PMP Difficult? What Is the PMP Exam Pass Rate?

All of the 200 questions in PMP Certification Examination are single choice questions. In the mainland of China, the PMP Certification Exam is conducted in both Chinese and English, with English as the standard and Chinese as the English translation. (for candidates who are good at English, it is recommended to focus on English, while for candidates who are bad at English, it is recommended to focus on Chinese, and the stem should stick to English.)

 

Among the 200 single choice questions, 25 of them will be randomly selected and will not be included in the score. Of the remaining 175 questions, if 106 of them are correctly answered and examinee will basically pass the exam. Just to be sure, answer 131 questions correctly. Even if the 25 questions selected are all right, you still have to answer 106 questions correctly, so you can pass.

 

PS: PMP Exam does not use the direct score display, but uses B, M, P to show the score. (B - Below Proficient, M - Moderately Proficient, P - Proficient)

 

Generally speaking, if you get M or P in each process domain, it is sure to pass. If there are more than 2 B, which is more mysterious, the specific results will be seen in the email sent by PMI. (I have seen people who ever got 3 B also passed).

 

Netizen Analysis 2:

1. As long as the course is professional enough and you prepare for the exam carefully, it is not difficult to pass the PMP Exam. Although the passing rate of PMP examination in the world is only about 30% - 50%. It is generally higher in China than that at abroad, which is generally about 70%. The passing rate of excellent PMP Training Institutions will reach 85% or more.

 

2. There are 200 single choice questions in PMP, of which 25 are random questions. Correct answers and wrong answers do not count as grades, and the remaining 175 are qualified with 106 correct answers.

Netizen Analysis 3:

About the passing rate of PMP examination, the official did not give an accurate figure, but the passing rate in China is generally higher than that at abroad.

 

Generally speaking, the PMP exam difficulty is not particularly big. It is all about the knowledge system related to Project Management, focusing on understanding. Unlike the kind of technical examination, PMP test questions are all single-choice questions, and the time is abundant. There are four hours. Generally, as long as sufficient preparation is made before the examination, there is no big problem in the examination, and the PMP examination results are not graded, as long as you pass the examination, you can get the certificate.

Netizen Analysis 4:

In fact, PMP pass rate is very high, which is much higher than the Software Exam. Six of our company all have passed the PMP Exam. In the five process groups, the Execution and Monitoring Groups are of high score, which you can't not fail. If you fail one of them, the efforts are totally wasted. There are some things that should be memorized and the teacher will give you pithy formulas, which can be mastered through several exercises. I did a total of 3 series of exercises, which was very close to the test questions. You can pass the exam if you do the exercise carefully. Just find a reliable institution. Don't worry too much.

 

Netizen Analysis 5:

The pass rate of PMP Examination in China is generally higher than that in the world, which is about 60%. The pass rate after general training can reach more than 90%. The time of PMP Training is short, and the review time is also not enough. It is easy to get tired after a long time, so the time of general PMP Training is about 3 months. Therefore, systematic training will be carried out three months before the PMP Examination, so that the Chinese and English registration of the PMP Examination will also be assisted by professional teachers.
