    Default Does Microsoft give partial marks?

    If you have a question that says choose 3 out of the following and you get 2 out of the 3, do you get partial credit or is it a 0?

    Thanks

    (my 70-290 is next)

    I think it's all or nothing on the multiple choice questions, but someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I've never seen any official information regarding how they grade their questions. You may get partial credit for completing some of the tasks in a sim (like how Transcender scores it), but I don't think you'd get partial credit for a question like that.

    There is no "partial credit." Your answer to each exam question is either correct or incorrect regardless of how many choices you are required to make. Be thankful that the correct number of choices to make is indicated. The level of difficulty of a question would be much higher if you didn't know the number of choices to select.
