There was a buzz in Project Management community about the drop in passing ratio in PMP exam, and so I thought to conduct a survey and seek the facts.
I am very thankful to all the folks who participated in the survey and congratulations to those who pass and best wishes for those who fail (It’s not the end of the world, collect your failure lesson learned and attempt again).
Whether you failed or pass, I would encourage you to compile your PMP lesson learned and share it in the forum.

The survey was run for a couple of months and I have eliminate quite a few entries and select some 78 entries. So the data below is from 78 participants who attempt exam in 2014.

On the PMP Exam, you are judge by Five Process Groups i.e: (Initiation, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling and Closing) and the result is either PASS or FAIL based on the criteria (Proficient, Moderately Proficient and Below Proficient).

Final Result: Showing green bar large is intentional 🙂
