The passing score will be set after a statistical analysis of the revised exam’s performance against the recommendations of the Standard Setting Committee. During the statistical analysis period, test takers will not receive their exam results onsite at the testing center. A score report will be sent 8-12 weeks after exam completion. You will know the passing score when you receive your score report.
