It is solely a score, not a percentage. The scaled score allows CMA candidates to know how they performed in relation to the passing standard of 360.
Candidates who do not achieve a CMA exam passing score will receive a report that indicates their performance on each of the key topic areas in the multiple-choice section as well as their overall performance on the essay section of the exam.
There are three performance ratings: Satisfactory (S), Marginal (M), and Unsatisfactory (U).
