The total test score reported to examinees for the Qualifying Exam is known as a “scaled score.” A scaled score is a conversion of an examinee’s raw score on an exam to a common scale.
A raw score represents the number of questions an examinee answers correctly. The Qualifying Exam has 150 scored questions so the maximum raw score that an examinee can achieve is 150. If an examinee provides the correct response for 100 of the 150 questions, the raw score would be 100.
As mentioned above, a scaled score is a raw score that has been adjusted and converted to a consistent and standardized scale. The range of possible scaled scores on the Qualifying Exam is 0 to 800. The minimum passing scaled score for the Qualifying Exam is 410.
