Receiving Your Results (ISC)² conducts a thorough statistical and psychometric analysis of the score data to establish the pass/fail score before releasing scores. We need a minimum number of test takers before this analysis can be completed.
Depending on the volume of test takers for a given test, there may be times when scores are delayed for approximately six to eight weeks to complete this critical process.
Your exam proctor will give you an unofficial exam result when you check out at the test center. (ISC)² will email you the official result.
In some instances, real-time results may not be available.
All test results are subject to the (ISC)² psychometric and forensic evaluation. This evaluation could take place after you get your official results. (The timing is based on the number of tests taken.) If the psychometric and forensic evaluation affects your score, (ISC)² will notify you.
Results will not be released over the phone.If you have any questions about this policy, contact (ISC)² before your exam.
