    Today you need to get a 70% overall for all 150 questions. They all count the same. You can get any 45 wrong of the 150 and still pass with a 70%. I could not find this info on the AAPC website, but Laureen Jandroep checks every year to get the latest information and that is what she was told by AAPC for 2013. Years ago, you needed to get 70% in each section of the exam, but this is not the case now. (FYI, Laureen Jandroep, CPC, CPC-H, CPC-I, CMSCS, CHCI, CPPM, creates Blitz Review Videos every year to help students prepare for the CPC exam.)

    Default CPC Exam

    I took the CPC exam today and didn't finish. What's the chance of passing? I can't believe I didn't finish, the questions were so hard and I was taking my time. I don't think I complete any of the questions on HCPCS. Would that make me fail?

    I took my CPC exam today also. How did you find the questions? They were very hard to me and left 12 unanswered. Guess we will know in 5 days if we pass or not.
