Frequently asked questions
Can I reschedule or withdraw from an exam without paying additional fees?
- No. If you don't pass, or don't take it for any reason, you must pay a re-examination fee before you can be scheduled.
Will I get my test results?
Since the exam is pass or fail, we'll let you know if you passed or failed.
If you failed we will tell you how many answers you got right in each content are, but no specifics.
Test results are usually ready 6-8 weeks after the exam.
Can I review a failed exam?
No, but if you fail we'll give you a scoring breakdown in the subject areas covered by the exam.
