LFCS Exam Grading

I have a quick question about the grading of the LFCS exam. It is regarding the fact that some questions have multiple parts. How do these get graded? Is it a hit or miss (i.e. you have to get every part correctly to score the full mark, or get a 0 otherwise), or are they partially graded according to some criteria? So for example, say there was a question with three parts, and the total weight given to this question was 6%. Would it always be 6/6 or 0/6, or is it possible to get something in between if you solved some parts but not the others?

    Hello Cadmus86,
    A bit late reply, but maybe it will help someone else...
    Judging by the score I got on my first pass, I'd say it's partially graded. So if you have a question comprised of 3 tasks that weighs 6% and you do 2 out of 3, you'll get 4%
