How to analyze your PMP Exam Scorecard
Hello & Welcome! Today, I will be presenting the PMP Exam Results report. You may have noticed that you can see your results right away when you take the PMP exam at Prometric Center. It takes approximately a few minutes to submit your final answers to all your questions. Then it does some grinding, and you see your results as PASS after two or three minutes. There may be people who get a FAIL score. Today, I will show you how the PMP Exam results report looks.
This is the Prometric Center’s report. You can print it out or get a copy with the seal from them. It serves as proof that you have passed the exam or received the results. The Result Scorecard has three sections. The top section is primarily the overall performance score.
This score will let you know if you passed or failed the exam. It actually has four ranges. (i) Above target; (iii); On target; (iii); Below target; and (iv). Needimprovement.
To pass the exam, you must be within the target or above the target range. There will be a needle that shows your position in the range. You have passed the exam if it is within the target range and above the target. It should not be below target or need improvement. This is the first part. The second part is slightly lower. The analysis of your score for each process group will also be displayed.
You are familiar with five process groups: (i) Initiating (iii), Planning (iii), Executing (iv), Monitoring and Controlling (v), Closing. You will see the same scores in each of these areas. For example, you might see Initiating on target or above target. You might see on target or above target when planning, or below target when execution is being done.
It is fine to be below target in one or more of these areas. Nobody knows the PASS code or secret codes for the exam. Also, who determines the minimum score required to pass the exam. This is because the exam is both a psychological and educational test. So I’ve shown you the overall score and the domain-wise score.

Analyzing the PMP Scorecard Report
Let me show you what it looks like. As always, the overall performance score is at the top. It can be either above target, on target or below target. You can see the situation in this example.
The second section shows the domain-wise and process group-wise. However, you don’t see any tables here. Instead, you see a pie-chart that displays different colors about your performance for each process group. You already know this because you saw it in the printer report.
You should see a detailed analysis of each task in the exam. It is possible to recall the exam.
