CBAP Exam Passing Score

CBAP Exam Passing Score


Listen to this blog

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

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

One of the common questions CBAP aspirants ask, “What is the CBAP exam passing score?”

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

All we know about CBAP is it is based on BABoK v3 scheme of competency-based certification.

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

Hence its suggested to target for 80 – 90% in the CBAP mock tests to be successful in the CBAP final exam.

      But one has to be extremely cautious of time and has to be aware of the time management tips to complete the exam in time
