      This may sound strange, but I am not 100% sure of what the passing score is for the Sports Jeopardy test.

    • Jeopardy doesn’t reveal the passing score for the on line test and does not notify you if you passed unless you’re selected to continue the selection process but I’m pretty sure 22/30 (under 80%) isn’t passing.

        See, Harold, I’d heard rumours that the pass threshold was 21, but I obviously can’t confirm that.
