]]>Students who are concerned with passing the Geometry Regents should be aware that it is more difficult than passing the Algebra Regents, at least in terms of the number of questions you need to answer correctly. For almost every Geometry Regents Exam (Common-Core) administered up to today, students could pass by answering 17 multiple choice questions correctly and no free-response questions correctly. By comparison, students only needed to answer 15 multiple choice questions correctly, on average, to get a 65 on the Algebra Regents.

However, the most recent Geometry Regents, January 2018, only required 15 multiple choice questions to be answered correctly to get a 65. It isn’t known if this will continue, so students should be prepared to answer at least 17 multiple choice questions correctly in order to get a 65. If students are able to get any credit for the free-response questions, then the number of multiple choice questions needed goes down.

**Disclaimer:** The scoring can change from test to test, so the required number of correct answers is subject to change.

The Geometry Regents uses a conversion table to change a raw score into a scaled score. The raw score ranges from 0-86, while the scaled score ranges from 0-100. The raw score is the total of point gained for each question. The 24 Part I questions, multiple choice, are worth 2 points each. The rest of the test is free-response and each part has different scoring. The seven questions in Part II are worth 2 points each, the three questions in Part III are worth 4 points each, and the two questions in Part IV are worth 6 points each. All together, the points from the four parts add up to 86.

For the majority of the Geometry Regents exams administered so far, a student only needed to have a raw score of 33 or 34 to get a 65. Since the maximum raw score is 86, a student only needed to get 40% of the points (34 out of 86 points) to get a 65. If we only examine the multiple choice questions and ignore the other three parts, we see that a student needs to answer 71% of the multiple choice questions correctly (17 out of 24) to get a 65 for the entire test.

]]>How to pass the Algebra Regents Exam comes down to simply – math (of course, it’s Algebra).

The test consists of 24 multiple choice questions and 13 open-ended questions. Here’s the amazing part, it’s possible to pass Algebra I Regents Exam by only answering the multiple choice questions and getting less than 65% of them correct. Of course, students should take the entire test, but based on previous Algebra I Regents it is possible to pass the exam by only answering 63% of the multiple choice questions correctly and not even answering the open-ended questions.

From when the Common-Core Algebra I Regents was first administered to today, the average raw score needed to get a 65 is 28.7. Each multiple choice questions is worth 2 points, so a student only needed to answer 15 multiple choice answers correctly to get a 65.

Actually, the last five Algebra I Regents exams only required a raw score of 27 to get a 65, so only 14 correct multiple choice questions were necessary to pass.

**Disclaimer:** The scoring can change from test to test, so the required number of correct answers is subject to change.

In order to get a 65 on the Algebra I Regents Exam, a student only needed to answer approximately 63% of the multiple choice questions correctly. On average only 15 multiple choice questions needed to be answered correctly to pass, and 15 out of 24 multiple choice questions is only 62.5%. Plus if the student got any points from the open-ended questions, then the number of correct multiple choice questions needed is decreased.

If a student wants to pass Algebra I Regents Exam, the student should focus on answering as many multiple choice questions as correctly as possible. The questions differ from year to year, but the types of questions repeat. Practicing the Part I, multiple choice, questions is the best way to efficiently prepare to pass the exam if a student has limited time. Plus, topics and questions reviewed for the multiple choice questions will carry over to the open-ended questions.

The fact that only 15 questions were needed to be answered correctly to pass the Algebra Regents doesn’t mean the test should be taken lightly. Students still need to be prepared for the test in order to pass. The questions are difficult for many students.

To pass, a student has to study and practice, practice, practice. A student should take a practice test and identify his or her strengths and weaknesses and work on those topics.
