    Gutted. Failed with score of 670. No idea if that is close or not. Guess a fail is a fail. Re=booked for June. Had 40 questions with about 8 Sims, Found Sims okay, so need to brush up on multiple choice. Frustrated because I thought I had just made it. Must keep the faith!:(

    670 is pretty close, I'd say maybe 2 or 3 questions off.

    I did the exam a while back too... didn't study at all and failed with a 640... I am in the process of doing it again in a few weeks and this time I actually studied!! Don't worry dude, I am sure next time you'll pass! I hope you used the second shot voucher.

    700 is a pass... as far as how many questions that is, it's impossible to say - only Microsoft knows, and they're not telling.

    Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, study your weak areas, and give it another go. :)

    I think everyone fails an exam at least once. You got yours out of the way, and were pretty close to the passing mark. Just keep on forging ahead. You'll make it through!

    Good Luck!

    I wouldn't worry about it, I actually failed it 3 times (shocking I know, I just didn't 'get' it at the time, other exams I breezed).
