Examination Results Procedures
E-mailing of Scores:
Examination scores will be mailed to you within 20 working days after you have taken the examination provided all official transcripts verifying the appropriate degree have been received.
Note: Examination results cannot be released by telephone to anyone. DO NOT submit a new application fee to retake the test prior to receiving your examination scores.
It is important that you retain the examination score report as this report will be the only document from the Board of Certification that will contain your Certification Number.
If you are unsuccessful in passing the examination, information on re-testing will be enclosed with your examination scores. DO NOT submit an application fee to retake the examination until you receive your examination scores by email.
Maximum Number of Examination Attempts:
You are permitted to take the examination in any one particular category a total of five times under one route. If you are unsuccessful after five attempts, you are ineligible for further examination in that category under the same route.
Release of Scores:
Successful International Certificant names will be published in the International Certification Report. If you do not wish for your name to be published, please email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 10 days before your examination.
Request for Examination Scores Mailed to a Third Party:
Requests for copies of examination scores mailed to a third party, such as a State licensing board or employer, must be submitted by the examinee in writing/e-mail at the time of application and include the following information: full name, certification category, date of examination, name and address of third party, and signature. Requests received from anyone other than the certified individual, will not be honored. There is no charge for this one-time release of examination scores sent immediately upon successful completion of the examination. Please refer to Verification of Certification for all requests after successful completion of the examination.
Verification of Computer Examination Results:
If you wish to question your computer examination results, you must notify our office in writing within 30 days from the date of receipt of scores. A $25.00 fee is required. The check or money order must be enclosed with your request. The ASCP Board of Certification does not release or disclose the content or answers for specific test items. Incorrect responses will not be reported when requesting a review.
