How do i calculate my marks the way cima does. i see on the results they say 100/150 yet we write 60 question.
Please may you help me to understand their scoring methodology.

It is not straightforward. This link attempts to explain the process:
The results are put through a statistical process that attempts to ensure adjustments are made to scores to ensure all exams in a paper are equivalent in difficulty of passing.
So, to pass you need at least 100/150 in scaled marks. If there are 60 questions that does not directly equate to 40/60. If an exam is judged to be on the hard side it would be possible to get 100/150 (the scaled score) by getting only 37/60 questions right (the raw score).
There is no fixed raw score pass mark but they aim to obtain a fixed pass standard.
