    Hi Everyone,

    This morning I happened to sit for the 70-554 exam and got through it with
    just 700 marks.
    However with the detailed result sheet, i got confused since it was not of
    the type that i ever have expected it to be.
    It looks like the following


    70-529: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Distributed Application


    70-549: PRO: Designing and Developing Enterprise Applications by Using the
    Microsoft .NET Framework


    According to the progress-bar values, the marks i've scored for 529 is close
    to 820 and for 549 it's 700.
    From what i understand with this is, the exam is broken into two parts and
    the candidate is assessed by the minimum score he/she gets.

    Any thoughts on this?

    First of all, congrats. :)

    Now, it's been a while, but I would assume that if the two individual exams
    make up for 50% of the total, the score from the two exams would be added up
    and then divided by two. If that isn't case, I do know that for some
    courses, 700 is a passing score.

    I don't think that there is any deterministic relationship between those
    scores. They are just an indicator of what areas need more improvement, and
    that is what you need to focus on.
