About the PMP Exam


The following are the exam details:
Total duration of the exam is 4 hours.
Total number of questions: 200. Out of these, 25 questions are considered pre-test questions used for future
tests. Only 175 questions are scored.
All questions are multiple choice questions, with only one correct answer.

PMI grades students on each of the five process groups and assigns a grading of Below Proficient, Proficient
and Moderately Proficient in each of the five process groups.
The result (pass or fail) is determined by a combination of these grades. How many grades or number of points
one has to score to pass the PMP exam is not made public by PMI.
