The president of my local chapter told me in the CPC exam review class that the test is divided into 10 sections. She told me that you MUST get 70% in EACH of the sections in order to pass (not just a overall 70%) Is this correct??

That is out of date information. It used to be that you needed 70% in each section, but they changed it to now 70% overall is all you need to pass. I would suggest contacting AAPC to verify.

I've been proctoring the exam for 8+ years and am a PMCC Instructor- currently the passing score is a 70% OVERALL. The exam is divided into sections based on topics and each topic has a set number of questions, however that is for organizational purposes only. :)

Good luck on the exam!

I just took the exam. You need 70% overall. You can get a maximum of 45 wrong. That was confirmed by the AAPC.

Whew! What a load off my mind! I am so glad that the 70% is overall, and not in every section! I would be absolutely devasted if I scored highly in every section but would fail because I missed one too many questions in one section! That really puts my mind at ease! Well sort of, since I wont have my test results until later this week or next week!

Thanks sooo much for the quick replies everyone! :)

I passed the CPC with 70%. Totally disappointed because I was very confident I scored in the 80%. If pass, do they use a flat 70% or will they give you the exact %?

AAPC will post your exact score on your page when you login. If it says you passed with 70% then that would be your actual score. Congratulations on your certification. ??
