Depends on what you mean by "unusual."

There's about a 61.7% chance of getting at most 5 correct. So there's about a 38.3% chance of getting more than 5 correct.

Does 38.3% qualify as "unusual?" If you roll a die, is it "unusual" if you roll a 5 or 6? It probably won't happen, but it's not that unlikely, so I wouldn't call it "unusual." But the term is subjective, so there is no correct answer.
