Last verified on June 19, 2017
Candidates failing any part of the computer-based Qualifying Exam must repeat only the failed part(s) in the next annual exam. Those candidates failing all three parts must repeat all of them.
After the exam is scored, the Board will send each candidate notification of his or her results, including a quartile ranking in each of the separate categories within the clinical portion of the exam.
To assist them in monitoring their programs, program directors and department chairs will receive the same information for all candidates from their programs.
Initial Qualifying Exam results are posted in each candidate’s myABR account approximately four to six weeks after the exam. Candidates will receive an email when results have been posted. “Next steps” letters and performance reports also will be received within three weeks after the results are posted to myABR.
During this time, please do not request scores by email, fax, or any other method. If you have not received your results within six weeks after the exam, you may contact the ABR office.
