For Microsoft Exams you need 70% of the questions correct.

"The new scale requires a minimum passing score of 700 on all exams. The maximum score on the exams varies depending on the complexity of the skills being measured.

• Hello,

It is not really percentage based, but in most cases 70% will work. You need to get a score of 700, usually out of around 1000.

Hope this helps.
