ISACA uses and reports scores on a common scale of 200 to 800. For example, the scaled score of 800 represents a perfect score with all questions answered correctly; a scaled score of 200 is the lowest score possible and signifies that only a small number of questions were answered correctly. You must achieve a score of 450 or higher to pass the CISM exam.
