So...when I took the CISSP exam (a billion years ago-- you whippersnappers with your six-digit ISC2 Member numbers and your fancy phones...), they gave us our score on the test, regardless of whether or not we passed.
At some point in the 21st century, that changed to only giving the score if you failed. Makes sense-- we don't need members with various certs claiming superiority over other certified members based on test scores. But it is useful for those who have failed to know by how MUCH they failed.
Got a message recently from a former student-- failed. No score.
Did the policy change at some point? I'd like to be able to tell candidates what to expect. Recent candidates-- wanna share your experiences with testing results?
I think they stopped giving out scores for failed exams with the introduction of the CAT version of the CISSP exam, which I believe was brought in around a year ago.
This policy is also applicable to all of the other exams, and presumably was applicable from the same date.
You are apparently provided with a proficiency rating (above/near/below) for each domain to help you know where to focus your studies for when/if you reattempt the exam.
Although, not all of the information on the website about the new policy had been updated until recently as you can see in this thread:
EDIT: updated to add info on the proficiency ratings.
Okay-- very good to know; thanks for the quick reply!
Yes, ISC2 should definitely update the website with the correct info. That's crucial.
On the FAQ page, it states that passing candidates will not be given scores but failing candidates will be provided with their proficiency levels.
