Exam Scoring and Score Range

APICS uses a scaled score methodology, which is a technique for equating scores in which the degree of difficulty varies from one exam form to the next. This ensures equivalent passing standards are maintained for each exam form. Candidates can download Understanding a Scaled Score for more information.

The CPIM score range is 200 to 350

Pass = 300-350
Fail
 = 200-299

At that time, candidates can then access the ATT form at www.apics.org/att and select the View/Update an existing Authorization to Test option to choose a new exam window. If a candidate chooses a new window that starts within six months of the original date the ATT was issued, no additional fees will be assessed. If a candidate selects a new window that starts after 6 months from the original ATT issue date, they must pay a new exam fee. No refunds or transfers will be issued.
