There are no eligibility criteria to appear for the CISA Examination. However, a student will need to fulfill work experience requirement before the CISA Certification is awarded by ISACA.
A minimum of 5 years of professional information systems auditing, control or security work experience (as described in the CISA job practice areas) is required for certification. Substitutions and waivers of such experience, to a maximum of 3 years, may be obtained from ISACA.
CISA Examination covers the following job practice domains and task & knowledge statements:
ISACA uses a 200-800 point scale with 450 as the passing mark for the exams. The actual examination score (correct answers out of 200 questions) is converted into a scale between 200-800 points. For example, if the candidate answers all the 200 questions correctly, then he/she receives a scaled score of 800. A scaled score of 200 is the lowest score possible and indicates that only a small number of questions were answered correctly.
A candidate must receive a scaled score of 450 or higher to pass the exam. The passing score of 450 indicates the minimum number of questions that must be answered correctly by the candidate in order to demonstrate practical application of the job task and knowledge statements.
Only a candidate receiving a passing score may apply for certification if all the other requirements are met.
