Determination of pass/fail for N1

In order to pass, (1) your total score needs to be at or above the point required for passing (overall pass mark) and (2) your score in each scoring section needs to be at or above the minimum point required for passing (sectional pass mark).

With N1, you need ≥ 100 scores (max is 180 scores). It means you have to get ≥ 55.6% of max scores.

The required sectional pass mark is :

Language Knowledge (Vocabulary/Grammar) ≥ 19. Reading ≥ 19. Listening ≥ 19.

If there is even one scoring section where the score is below the sectional pass mark, examinees are determined to have failed, no matter how high the total score he/she might have.
