Default How is the exam graded?

I've been browsing through old MLC threads and people say you get a score of 1-10 on each question on the WA section? Some say you need a certain threshold in the WA to pass too. I heard about the 60-65 points overall range to pass. I was wondering if someone can give a more accurate explanation on how possibly this exam is graded? Thanks!

I don't think there is a more accurate explanation available publicly.

Not sure but do you get a score for each question if you pass the MC?

Yes. So let's say you do well enough to get WA graded, but fail the exam overall, you'll see grades for each question on your SOA transcript. If you pass the exam, then you won't see grades for each WA question.
