What if you fail in one area?

Taking test 10 May.  Do you fail if you are proficient in 5 areas, but do miserably in one, such as Integration?   In other words, do they average the scores and still pass you even if you do poorly in just one area?

Key is to score 61%, The evaluation is not based on the categories. You can score 0 in one category too.

Thank you Mr/Ms Admin.  That clears it up.

Don't bank on this 61%.  This mark is a thumb rule.  Once upon a time PMI explicitly used and stated this cut off to decide pass-fail.  Now they don't state any more.  It is stll a general belief that 61% is implicitly followed but nobody is sure
