Determination of pass/fail for N3

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

With N3, you need ≥ 95 cores (max is 180 scores. it means you have to get ≥ 53% 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.
