First : why is the pass score for the upgrade exam that high compared to the normal part I?
And most importantly: what is going on with that percentage? ---> 29 out of 48 is 60% and NOT 70%
60% seems more reasonable and more close to the normal part I
It seems that there is a higher chance that their is a typo in the percentage on their site (so 60% instead of 70%) then a typo in the number of correct questions: if you take 39 out of 48 you get 81%.
I was thinking it could had something to do with the individual weigth of the questions or so, but then again, if you check the percentage of the normal part I , its correct: 37 out of 64 is indeed 57% (while 39 out of 48 is not 70%)
Can anyone confirm that it is indeed 60% rather then 70% ?
I can confirm that the pass score is 60% and NOT 70% (is cearly printed on the exam result paper)
So its as to be expected the same pass score as for the normal part I
Good luck to all future upgrade takers!

Ok, I passed the upgrade today with 85% today.
I can confirm that the pass score is 60% and NOT 70%, so the SUN site contains wrong information (this was cleary indicated on the exam result paper)
So I hope this helps future upgrade takers !
