OK OK, I know that passing grades arent published but....

Anyone have a ballpark idea of what passes Level I usually? I mean, of course its on curve so, is it like a college Physics 21% is passing kind of curve, or more like a 70% and above kinda deal.

I think the estimates are usually in the high 50's / low 60's. But I could be wrong. When results come out, people try to estimate the MPS, with unknown success.

One of the metrics is 70% of the mark of the person at the 1st percentile, so around 68-70 is a safe bet.

if u go to CFAI's website under FAQ's, you'll see one that has to do with people scoring between 50-70 on all sections and not passing, which probably happens frequently. So I would assume that you would need AT LEAST low 60's, but more likely high 60's

I am happy to say that I passed! Your study notes certainly helped prepare me for what was the most difficult exam I had ever taken.
