Hello everyone. A question for you
I ve seen some comments and exam results announcements from people who just cleared their CISSP exams.. I cleared my exam today with 100 questions and with still an hour remaining. is this possible.? I am aware that the CAT format follows 100 - 150 questions.. and when someone says I cleared the exam in the 100th question does it mean they have got everything right?
If my assumption is right as above, does it also include the 25 questions that ISC2 poses as experimental questions and not evaluated .? So in effect are you getting evaluated only for the 75 questions? Would you happen to know how do they arrive at 700 if you are evaluated only either for 75 or 100 questions. Thanks for your time
Hi @Gerald-victor - I think the video and info on this page should answer most of your questions regarding # of questions: https://www.isc2.org/certifications/CISSP/CISSP-CAT
"Each candidate will be presented with a minimum of 100 items and a maximum of 150 items. To receive a pass or fail result, a candidate must answer a minimum of 75 operational, or scored, items and may not answer more than 125 operational items. Additionally, each candidate will receive 25 pre-test, or unscored items, as part of the minimum length examination. (Pre-test items are items being evaluated for inclusion in future exams.) A candidate will not be able to distinguish between operational and pre-test items; consequently, a candidate should consider each item carefully and provide the best possible response based on the information presented."
However, I can't say exactly how the scoring works on each individual question, but the above info (and video at the link) should be helpful!
Thanks a lot for your response. Honestly I didn’t expect someone would revert at this lightning speed. This helps.. thanks again
thank you.. that’s helpful .. particularly around getting “enough” right .and also the proportionate test questions if someone were to finish around the minimum 100 numbers ... thanks a ton for your assistance
