CAS Exam MAS 1 – Pass Marks

The pass mark is the number of points needed to pass the exam and is set each sitting by the Examination Committee.

The pass mark (%) is the pass mark as a percentage of the total points on the exam. Between 2018 and 2019, a candidate needed to score better than a 56%-59% on the exam to pass. 

The 95th and 75th percentiles show the score achieved by that percentile of the pool of exam takers for the sitting. It can give you an idea of how well the more-prepared candidates did on the exam.
