Test Results

How long are people waiting to hear back on their test results? NCARB still says the wait time is 4-6 weeks, but since the blackout and change over, I haven't waited longer than 10 days. I took my last test on Jan 16 and have yet to hear anything. This is my final test so I'm a little anxious. Has this been happening to anyone else?

I've taken 2 since the blackout and found out the results by checking the NCARB website. The email they sent me to let me know my test had been reviewed came days after I had already checked the website (which i did morning day and night for 10 straight days).

I have waited 10 days to get my first 3, but I just got my last one in only 5 days.

I am wondering the same thing. I took my last test Sat. and I am hoping to know more before leaving on my vacation. Fingers crossed it is good news and I am done. Not as confident about it as I hoped. I think with Monday being a holiday it may take longer. Is it about a week or 10 days? Any other feedback appreciated? Thanks.

It seems like the typical results days are Thursday + Friday. Don't know if you'll hear back this week, but if you do, hope you get good news!

This week will be 5 weeks with no word yet. I've called NCARB, but they were of no help in explaining when I might expect it. So I wait and it is killing me!

Found out this morning by checking the NCARB site. It's a PASS! That was my last test, so I am officially done. Woo Hoo! :D

Agreed; seems like scores are reported on Friday. I think Monday is an 11-day wait, from what I've read; nice table, regardless.

I took an exam a few weeks back on a Friday. Got my results the following Thursday, so 6 days.

Before that, I took an exam on a Wednesday and got my results back the following Wednesday, 7 days.

My hunch is a lot of it depends on what state your in. I haven't asked others yet but my results have come on Fridays both times since the blackout. I took the first on a Sunday and received the results on the following Friday (5 days). The next test I took on a Monday and had to wait until the Friday of the following week (11 days). I took this last one on Wednesday of last week so my hunch is I'll hear this Friday, although I think that could depend on how close to the pass/fail line the results might be. For what it's worth, I'm in Washington (not DC).

the chart was dead accurate for my SS exam - this needs to be bumped up.

Do they always send you an email letting you know they've posted results?? If so, I think it's smarter (and less anxiety inducing) for me to just wait until I get the email to look. Otherwise, like others, I'll be obsessively checking every.single.day.

I took SS on a friday morning, so we'll see. This is the first one i've taken since they changed how results come to you.

I have taken 4 exams post blackout. Three were taken on Friday's and I received my results the following Wednesday. My last one, SPD, I took last week Tuesday and have not heard anything yet. the F5 key is starting to wear out. Do we know that exam results are always posted at midnight EST?

It'll be 2 weeks since I took my last two exams (back to back). They are my last ones. I'm stressing that it means a fail when it takes more than the 5-10 day average I'm reading about.

Anyone else take weeks to get results?

The state I test in (Oklahoma) seems to act very differently than everyone else in this thread.
I always take my tests on Mondays. I usually get a letter in the mail almost 2.5-3.5 weeks later on a Thursday. Then 2 weeks go by and I get an email from NCARB saying my results can be viewed online.
It seems like your states allow NCARB to show results right away on the NCARB website, while my state feels the need to mail me my results.
Is Oklahoma the odd man out?

I'm curious if anyone thinks the differences in the timing of the score reports could be based on which exam it is? Does one exam consistently seem to take longer to get the results back?

Just trying to figure out why so many people are reporting that it took up to 10 days to get their scores - maybe it was the same test?

I've taken SS and PPP, both on Saturdays, and got results back the following Thursdays. Both times I got the email right around 3pm, even though the score report was available first thing in the morning.

I've been on a test taking binge (circa every 2 weeks for 5 of them) and the results have come in like clockwork--I've taken the exams on Mondays or Tuesdays & the results come in the Thursday of the following week at 3am (don't ask why I'm up at 3 am PST--I'm in California by the way). Until now! I took structures last week, and as you might guess with a sub-2-week study period, I don't think I did so well. I've gotten passes on all of the previous results, so the fact that I woke up to no information today (Thursday) makes we wonder if I failed or my test merited a review. I wouldn't be surprised either way, but will be refreshing my ncarb page obsessively until then...

Leftcoast, I'm experiencing the same thing, except I've only gotten results for 2 tests so far. But both score reports came in at the same time the following Thursday.

Last night, I waited up to see if it was true that results were posted at midnight, but they weren't, ha. This morning I was sure there would a score report waiting, but no.

Well, we both have been getting regular score reports except for the ones we took last week, so maybe there's a reason score reports are delayed this week?

Same thing happened to me...tested last Monday, was expecting a result this morning like clockwork and nothing. Maybe its a glitch? I hate that we are all stuck waiting, but I am glad it isn't just me! Fingers crossed for a round of passes!

And I also waited until midnight, haha!

good to hear we're all in the same boat! yes: here's to passes! though, sooner or later my breakneck study schedule was bound to catch up w me, so i won't be surprised if mine is not.
i will confess: i woke up in the middle of the night & checked (my brain! it has a clock!) & when I didn't see a result I went back to sleep & dreamed that there was a weird rococo process by which borderline test results were decided, part of which involved meeting an NCARB official at a highway rest stop to plead one's case in person. !!! this is my second to last test and i'm obviously ready to be done...

I took my exam last Monday as well and it's been a nail biting circus of checking for results, sigh of semi relief of no "Fail" sign then panic that it could still be looming.

My last exam (PPP) I took on a Friday and the results were waiting for me Thursday morning. Does anyone think the wait is for marginal scores which required a human review?

I don't know about marginal scores taking longer... I think my pass in SS MUST have been borderline, and I got that result in 4 business days. I walked out of that exam 99.9% sure I had failed, and then surprise! I must have just scraped by, but it didn't take long to find out.

i'm in md/dc. when i took the test on a saturday, i found out the following thursday (6 days later). for the past 2 tests that i have taken on mondays, i have found out the following wednesday (10 days later, if you include the monday in the count). the frustrating thing is i know exactly where NCARB's office is (i can walk to their office!) and i always feel like showing up at the front door and asking for my results in person! would completely get rid of the waiting anxiety

Nothing last night like many people have been saying.

This is my last test, would that make any difference? Does NCARB need to send out additional paperwork or change my NCARB screen if I pass?

I took SS on Friday. I haven't heard yet, I think it'll be interesting to see if I hear tomorrow or Monday on the account of Monday being a holiday.

A friend of mine recently passed his last test (SPD) and heard in the typical 10-11 days.
