How ITA scores exams

ITA exams are electronically scanned and scored. Quality control procedures during and after scoring ensure the accuracy of your exam results.

The passing rate for all ITA exams is 70%.

Exam Scoring Formula

# of Correct Answers # of Questions   =   X 100

Example
80 120  =   66.7100

Your final score is a simple percentage calculated by dividing the number of correct answers by the number of questions on the exam. For example, if there are 120 questions on your exam and you answered 80 of them correctly, you would receive a score of 67%.

As each topic area has a different number of questions, an accurate score cannot be obtained using the percentage from each topic.

Your Exam Results Letter will have details of your mark on each topic area.
