    The cut score for different versions of the test for the same division may be different because of different difficulties.

    This link shows the passing rate and may help:

    There was a chart with average cut scores for each exam.
    Passing rates don’t help. It is good to know cut scores when doing practice exams.

    Yes that gives an overall average with a spread of more than 10%.

    Hey Inda,

    Great question! We unfortunately only post the cut score range as illustrated in the link posted by Gang Chen. NCARB does not post the individual cut scores for each version of the exam (or form) you may experience in the test center. If you score at least a 68% on scored items, you will pass all forms within all divisions of the ARE. I would use this percentage as a guide as you prepare for your exam.

    Hope this helps!
