Technically it really doesn't matter whether you get 701
or 1299 as long as you pass and have the cert in hand

I think there's no 1000 point for full exam. For example on 70-290 my
boyfriend had 765 points and he made mistake in only one question. So
maximum may be around 800 points.
Our friend had failed with 665 points and it looked like he didn't
answer around 7-8 questions.
It's very hard to guess what way they are counting points.

I think that the same situation is possible on 70-270. I can answer
this question in 2 weeks when he'll take it.

We are preparing to get the best score. I'm passing 70-290 in two
weeks so we can compare scores.
