I wouldn't look at it that way. It appears it will be a real accomplishment to pass. Many professional exams, such as the P.E. (Professional Engineering) exam, are known for having a very, very low complete passing rate--something like only 10% of applicants pass the whole thing the first time around. Most engineers pass a portion of the sections and have to re-take the ones they didn't pass again (often multiple times). You never know how you will do until you take it yourself.
