This answer was rated:

My father got a memory test score of 74/100. I don’t think this is a good score. Is it?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: Just a memory nurse for the test
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hello -

Do you happen to know which specific test this is?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No sorry but it is one that obviously is out of 100 and in uk
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Sorry don’t want to call

Do you happen to know if there were 100 questions, or were there a smaller amount of questions?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
There were not 100 questions. It was in sections with a score for each question. But if you don’t know this then perhaps you cannot help?

The problem here is that there are at least 10 different tests given for memory impairment, all with different grading scales.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Ok. Didn’t think there were that many at all. Bye

Memory impairment screen

six-item screener

clock drawing test

mini-cognition

Short portable mental status questionaire

MMSE

MoCA

SLUMS

CERAD-NP

ACE

and others

without knowing the specific test -- it's impossible to answer here.

But a 74 / 100 generally will mean there is fairly significant memory impairment.
