I'm confused. If there are 3 sections and you received 50% or less on all 3, how does that figure to 61% for the whole test?hello, i just took the exam, its not 70% total they break it down into section, three. you have to have a passing rate of 70% in each section not total like i was told by the proctors. i failed it, got a 61% will be taking it again in feb 2016. I got a 47% on first section a 50% on second then a 49% on third section. that sucks. I was told by proctors that its a 70% total to pass but thats for the CPC exam, not the CPMA exam, its different.
ok yes these are my scores from the CPMA test I took back in Dec 2015I'm confused. If there are 3 sections and you received 50% or less on all 3, how does that figure to 61% for the whole test?
The AAPC site breaks it down into 6 sections.
- Medical Record Standards and Documentation Guidelines
- Coding and Documentation Compliance Guidelines
- Coding and Reimbursement Concepts
- Scope and Statistical Sampling Methodologies
- Medical Record Auditing Abstraction
- Category Risk Analysis and Communication
When you get the CPC score it tells you only how you performed on sections you received under 75% on but no information on the sections you received over 70% on (you can request a breakdown on all sections separately). It sounds to me as if you failed in 3 of the 6 sections and passed the other 3.
I know this was a thread started last year but isn't the poster asking how many pass the CPMA compared to how many take it, not what is the passing score? Passing scores are always 70%Does anyone know the pass to fail rate percentage for CPMA exam? I test 12/19. thank you in advance
Fair comment. The scoring did seem a little weird though but, as someone said, in order to pass you need to get no more then 45 questions wrong. Score 105 correctly and you pass with a 70%.Yes, that was the focus when this thread was posted in 2015. When this thread was resurrected recently it was an inquiry into the poster's exam results and if her exam results qualified for a passing score.
