After Test Day

Receiving Your Results

Your pass/fail results will be posted to your online account approximately five business days after your eligibility period ends. The results will be sent to your jurisdiction at the same time; no further action is required to send your scores to the jurisdiction you selected when you registered for the exam.

Your free score report, which includes your numerical scaled score, will be posted to your online account ten business days following your exam date. This report can be accessed for free for thirty days. After thirty days, you can access your score report by purchasing an Individual Score Report on your online dashboard.

The free score report posted to your dashboard includes only your scaled score and pass/fail status. If you would like additional diagnostic feedback on your exam performance, you may purchase a Performance Feedback Report (see below).

Withheld Scores

All scores are subject to review and validation prior to their release, and FSBPT has the sole authority to determine whether a score will be released to any party. On any given exam date, some candidates will have their scores withheld for a number of reasons. Withheld exam scores will usually be released within a week of their planned released date in most cases, but this may vary with high testing volumes.

If your score is withheld, FSBPT may ask you to provide additional information before your scores are released. Responding promptly and accurately to this request will help to facilitate the release of your exam scores.

If you have any additional questions about withheld scores, see the FSBPT website.

Completing the Licensure Process

If you passed your exam, congratulations! Your score will be sent automatically and electronically to the jurisdiction you selected during registration. Make sure to contact your jurisdiction directly to complete the licensure process. Jurisdiction contact information is available on the FSBPT website.

Score Transfers

Your scores are automatically reported to the jurisdiction you designated when you registered for the NPTE. If you need to send your scores to another jurisdiction, you can do so any time after your scores are released by logging in to your online account and clicking on “Score Transfer to State.” Score transfers are electronic and immediate, though it may take some time for the jurisdiction to access your score. A $90 fee applies to all score transfer requests.

Need to Test Again?

As long as you have not reached a testing attempt limit, you will be able to register for another exam approximately fifteen days following your unsuccessful attempt. All standard registration policies, deadlines, and fees apply to your next registration.

Performance Feedback Report

To help you understand your areas of strength and weakness, you may consider purchasing a Performance Feedback Report. This report provides detailed diagnostics on your performance and is broken down by content area, by body system, and by section.

Performance Feedback Reports can be purchased from your online account for $100.
