Since this is a beta exam you will not find out that information. It depends on how well the entire beta takers answer the questions.
Thts part of the fun of doing a beta exam

I think the passing score should not be too high as this is the entry level certification.

Hi all
I love this idea of this certification! It gives a general overview of what one should expect when thinking of going into development with the Technology! On the contrary i believe the passing score should be a high one! Well just my view!

I agree that passing rate should be higher, otherwise, people might find exams are easy to pass.
