# How many points do you need to get to pass

Ive noticed when going through the mock assesment on the AAT site, that ther is more than 100 marks in this exam, so how many marks do you need to get to pass please

• Competency is 70%
• How many questions do you need to get right , to get 70%. As ther are more than 100 marks in this exam.
• So for example, some of the earlier Level 2 exams have 120 points total.
120 * 70% = 84, so you need 84 points from the whole exam to pass.

However not all of the tasks carry the same amount of points - one might have 8, another 12, etc. So if you wanted you could calculate 70% of each of those. In any event you can't pass if you've left a task unattempted.
