In order to pass the English Regents exam, you must score a 65 or higher. It’s important for you to remember, then, that if you want to graduate with a Regents Diploma, you must obtain this score on at least five of your Regents examinations or else you cannot graduate high school.
Because the English Regents exam is divided into three parts, each part requires a raw score that is weighted, so students have an opportunity to obtain a higher maximum score for each section. For example, the first part has a maximum of 24 raw score credits, with each multiple choice question being worth one point. Part one is weighted only by a number one weighting factor, so students can only obtain a maximum weighted score of 24 for this section.
