Question: CISSP Passing score

Preparing for my CISSP exam, I haven't been able to clarify this point out of all resources that I checked:

-Number of questions is 100 questions (or 150 if didn't pass within 100),

-There is a 25 not-scored questions, that makes number of scored questions 75.

-The passing score is 700 out of 1000. 

The question: Is the passing score 700/1000 is for the 75 questions (100 - 25 not-scored questions)? or is for the entire 100 questions? thank you.

@kalhassan Khaled,

Also, please note that the exam will cover all of the eight CBK domains, but you will probably not see the same number of questions for each domain. You have to achieve passing score on each of the domains. Quoting from the page that Alec linked to:

"The content for each CISSP CAT exam is constructed in compliance with the domain weights stated in the CISSP exam content outline regardless of exam length."
