Best Answer

You can't get exactly 70 percent, because that would be 11.1 questions wrong out of 37. If you miss 11 or fewer questions your score will be above 70%; if you miss 12 or more questions your score will be below 70%. This assumes the test is more or less "straight"; if it's scored like, say, the SAT (where leaving a question blank does not reduce your score by as much as answering incorrectly) then we'd need to know the exact details of how the test is scored.
