scoring issues

Would someone please give me a rough idea of how many multiple choice
questions the students need to answer correctly on the exam in order to pass?

Also the number of points needed on the 6 open-response questions (its my
understanding that each O.R. question has 9 graded "points").

I do know about the scoring differences of leaving a M.C. question blank as
opposed to answering it incorrectly and that the exam is statistically
referenced somehow to get scores of 1,2,3,4,5. But I'd like to give my
students some point of reference on how many questions they need to answer and
how many points they need to obtain to achieve a passing score. (Obviously,
I'd like for them to get everything correct! ;-)

Thanks for your help,
