The Certified Business Analysis Professional CBAP certification is one of the most coveted designations for business analysts globally.

Along with the reputation also comes the toiling for the CBAP certification exam.

One of the common questions CBAP aspirants ask is, “What is CBAP passing score?" IIBA doesn't provide any specific passing score. However one must aim for scoring 75% minimum in all the knowledge areas and overall. 

Since IIBA does not disclose this information, we don’t have a confirmed answer to this question.

CBAP is a competency-based certification based on the BABoK v3 scheme.

From the inputs received from our past CBAP participants and their experience, we know that it is safe to assume that the CBAP exam passing score is more than 70%.

Hence it's suggested to target 80 – 90% in the CBAP mock tests to be successful in the CBAP final exam.

Again there is no official data by IIBA to support this.

This is based on our best estimate of the information on the CBAP exam.

Professionals preparing for CBAP also ask, “what is the exam pattern of CBAP?”.
