    80%, I believe is the pass mark for the practice exam suites (eg preplogic, transcender, etc). The passing score for any MS exam is 700, what this equates to percentage wise - no-one knows (apart from MS).

    See here.

    It's just like checking in from time to time to see that I'm not going totally crazy on this 271 revision ;)

    As said the pass mark is 700 for all MS exams but no one knows how they are marked. That is you may get 10 points for a question with two answers and you may get 20 points for a question with one answer nobody know how they are marked for sure.

    if your getting 80%+ on practice tests then you may be ok
