  What is the Passing Score for the PMP Exam?

PMP Handbook says: The passing score for all PMI credential examinations is determined by sound psychometric analysis. PMI uses subject matter experts from across the globe to help establish a point at which each candidate should pass the examination(s) and the examination point of difficulty. Data that shows how candidates actually performed is cross referenced with the subject matter experts to ensure that the point of difficulty on each examination is healthy.

PMI has not mentioned the exact passing score in the PMP Handbook.

However, in 2005, PMI published a document "Frequently Asked Questions regarding the new PMP Examination", in which they clearly mentioned the passing score as 106 out of 175. The FAQ document is not distributed by PMI anymore. Therefore, candidates take 106 as a rough guideline for the passing score.
