You can also say, "What is the minimum requirement to pass the test."

The sentence is grammatically correct, but needs to be re-worded to make sense. The mark is the score or grade, so we are talking the level of just one score, so 'how many' is innappropriate. The sentence should be; How high a mark is required to pass the test.
