CISA Result Pass Percentage

CISA Result Pass Percentage 

CISA Result Pass Percentage – After a candidate completes the exam, the raw score is collected and converted into a point scale of 200 – 800.In order to pass the exam, candidates must receive a scaled score of 450. This represents a minimum consistent standard of knowledge determined by ISACA.

Historical Information on CISA Result Pass Percentage

ISACA has stopped disclosing the CISA exam pass rate in recent years, but based on this presentation from University of Virginia and the linkedin conversation, you can expect a passing rate around 50% every year.

A (very old) article on ISACA website also indicates a 2002 and 2003 pass rates at 51-52%.

Implications on CISA Exam difficulty

Whether a 50% pass rate is considered high or low is subject to interpretation.

First of all, there is no educational requirement to sit for the CISA exam. In other words, anyone can give it a try and this often attracts “casual takers” with no background in IT auditing. This naturally drags down the pass rate.

When compared to other accounting certifications, the CIA exam requires a bachelor degree to get qualified. The rules for CPA exam is even more stringent as state boards look for 150 credit hours (equivalent to 5 years of higher education), together with minimum accounting and business courses.

Therefore, the 50% pass rate in the CPA exam is very different from the 50% CISA exam pass rate. We can safely assume that the likelihood of passing the CISA exam is considerably higher than 50% if you have background knowledge in information system assets, the risks involved, controls implemented and the audit procedures

Why is the CISA Certification so Popular?

The cert gives the holder more recognition and higher visibility throughout the job application process. CISA professionals are well equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge and expertise to identify and manage vulnerabilities, evaluate the compliance of processes, implement solutions to rectify any detected risks, employ control mechanisms and consequently, add value to an organization.
