5 Key Sections of a Cisco Score Report

  1. Retake Date – You will not see this date on a passing score report. This date is visible only to candidates who have failed an exam and will show when they are eligible to retake the same exam again. For Associate, Professional, and Specialist exams, you must wait 5 days between exam attempts. For Expert exams, you must wait 15 days between exam attempts.
  2. Your Score – This is the overall score you achieved. Scores are reported using a scale score that ranges from 300 to 1,000.
  3. Passing Score – This is the minimum score you need to pass the exam. The passing score will not be the same number across all exams.
  4. Grade – Indicates if you Pass/Fail based on whether or not you achieved the minimum passing score.
  5. Section Scores – These scores are represented in percentages (out of 100%) and provide information on how well you did in each section. These sections are the domains on the Exams blueprint. If you did not pass the exam, you should use the section scores as an indication of your strengths and weaknesses and where to focus if you choose to retest. One misconception is that these percentages are cumulative to your passing score, but as you can see highlighted in the above score report, they are not. Though you may score above 70% or 80% on multiple sections, to pass, you must earn enough points on the exam to achieve the minimum passing score.
