Tested last week, no scores?

Tested last week, no scores?

Postby danielamdg » Thu Feb 23, 2017 7:30 am

Hi there-

My friend took 4.0 exams last year and got his scores the week after on Thursdays. I took my first exam- CDS- last Tuesday, Feb. 14, and was hoping I'd get the results today. My score page on NCARB record says results are posted 4-6 weeks from date of exam.
Anyone know what the deal is? When I should expect my scores? Anxiety is killing me!

Thanks!!

It depends what state you are in on how long it takes to receive results. In NY, it doesn't matter what day you test on in the week, you always get your results the Friday on the week after. So taking your exams on a Friday reduces your wait time to one week. The state might have changed how they transmit the scores and changed the day?

Is your friend in your same state or different? My impression is that NCARB puts the 4-6 weeks on there as a safeguard so that if the state/NCARB takes awhile, you technically can't blame NCARB.

Try to distract yourself. I'm currently waiting on results too. Good luck!

Thanks, and good luck to you too!

I was actually wondering the same thing this morning. This was my 5th exam and every one I have taken before gave me results early the next thursday morning. I'm waiting for my results as well with no idea when they will show up now! I feel your pain! Hopefully, the waiting will be worth it! Best of luck!

Same boat. I always get results on Thursdays, so the fact that I didn't get the result of my (last!) exam today is killing me. Good luck everyone...

Nice to know I'm not the only one!

So, I was talking to the aforementioned friend, and remembering that he took one of his exams the week before July 4th... and that time, he got his scores a day late... Really hoping this is the case now since Monday was a holiday... Crossing fingers for tomorrow!

I'm in the same boat this morning, this was my 3rd New York exam, and the scores usually post at 5am- still nothing. I am so anxious!

Ok now me too. I'm in NY as well and my results always posted by 3:30 AM on the next Friday. Assuming we are all from different states, maybe it's a problem on NCARB's end? I tried googling but nothing helpful showed up.

Hi guys!
So I definitely think the holiday screws everything up. I got them this morning... I'm in MD and we usually get them Thursday. So with Pres day, got them today... NY peeps, my guess is you'll get them tomorrow? Worst case, Monday.

I failed mine :( so hope yours are better news!!

BTW- do you know exactly what the levels mean? and if level 1 means a pass for that section? I took CDS and got a level 1 in the vignette, the codes section and the CDs section... Level 2 on envtl. issues and practice mgmt. I'm just really trying to understand what I did wrong and how to fix it! Thanks!

Nooooo! I tested 2 Mondays ago, I've had the longest wait! Oh well, guess I will stop refreshing.

I took CDS too, if I remember correctly, level 1 means you passed that portion.

There's an older blog post by NCARB: http://blog.ncarb.org/2014/April/HowAREScored.aspx
But to sum up, Level 1 is passing for that section. Level 2s and 3s mean please review. I've read you can still pass with a level 2 in one or more categories but I think if you get a level 3 you fail. Not sure about that.

Edit: I got my scores on Saturday morning around 5:00 AM! And PASSED!! I hope all of you did too!! :-)

I have always taken exams on a Tuesday and received my scores the following Thursday (i'm in California).

For the first time, i took a exam last Friday, so i'm hoping the results will post tomorrow (Thursday).

Not feeling good about this one....at all.....

If you took an exam last week on 3/13, you should have received your score report this morning. Check the NCARB website. It should be posted already.

Of course, this only applies to ARE 4.0

I'm in CA, tested on 3/14... haven't gotten results either. Typically receive them super early on Thursdays. Wonder what's going on?

Perhaps this has something to do with Spring Break???? Maybe NCARB is partying in Cancun......

last week there was a big storm (or was supposed to be) on Tuesday. Here in NY everything was shut down, so mayb the office was closed in DC and that would push the test results off a day. you should get them tomorrow then.

This is quite unusual. Not sure if you'll have to wait till the following Thursday or early next week......i know what you're going through though. You just want to find out already!

A couple of weeks ago I tested the Friday before Presidents day in NY (Feb 17). Per the norm I was supposed to get my results the following Friday (Feb 24), but didn't get them until Saturday (Feb 25). I know people that week that were expecting their results on Thursday got them Friday. Like I said above, looks like they were closed during the storm so Thursday released scores probably got pushed to today, and todays results will get pushed to tomorrow. Im basing this only on my own experience, no hard facts obviously.

Good luck.. I know the waiting game stinks. Im currently waiting for results as well but wont get them until next Friday.

I'm in the same boat. I took the test last Friday 3/17 in NY and still no results. They are usually posted the following Friday.

I tested for SS last week (3/14) in TX and I usually receive the results on the Friday after as well. But good news is that I just received the results this morning (and I passed!) so at least it was only one extra day of waiting.

Reviving an old thread to see if anybody else's results are delayed. I tested Monday 5/22 in NY/NJ for building systems this time. I was hoping to receive my results this morning, but nothing yet. I am wondering if the holiday had anything to do with the delay?

you answered your own question. It's pushed due to the holiday.

Right... pushed as in tomorrow as was the case due to the snow storm a few months back, or pushed until next Thursday?

So I'm in the same boat as everyone else. I tested on 7/15 and was expecting my results on 7/20 but nothing has been posted. I did see that we could not schedule an exam via prometric for most of last week and early this week. So maybe that has something to do with the delayed score reports

Similar story.. tested Monday, and no scores on Thursday. Mostly the scores are posted by Thursday, except for one delay during the new year. Waiting..

Transfer to 5.0. That's the ONLY good thing about 5.0 is you get your score the next day. :lol:

I tested on 7/13 and still no score. Usually get my score on the 7th or 8th day between 3:30-4pm.

Are they on vacation down at NCARB? :lol:

Also tested on the 7/13, no score yet. Figured there was some major system bug that killed scheduling for a week as well and they are catching up?

Same here. Tested on 7/14, no scores yet. I spoke with NCARB this morning and I guess Prometric had a power outage on 7/14. So I called Prometric and they said that was true, but they sent scores over the very next day, and they sent my score over again while I was on the phone with them. I called NCARB again after that, and they maintained that they have 4-6 weeks to give us our scores and had no indication my test had been graded. When I told them that Prometric told me they should have received my scores (twice) they said they would look into it and call me back. ....crickets....

Hopefully, their IT department is better than their design department and customer service. Every time i've called, it sounds as though they hire retired people in their 60's or ghetto thugs off the street...Hopefully, you hear something soon! If it makes you feel any better, you're not the only person who has recieved poor customer service from NCARB...
