How Do You Get Your Results?

For multiple-choice exams taken on a computer, we will provide you with immediate, tentative results at the end of your test. For multiple-choice exams in paper and pencil format, we will publish your results in our Online Application System dashboard later.

For education and experience results, the process varies. Some education and experience tests will provide you with immediate, tentative results once you finish the exam, while others will post your results on your dashboard at a later date. Once scores are official, we post the list of all candidates who pass, ranked in order of score. Finally, we mail your official results, when the results list is established.


What if You Disagree With Your Results?

For all multiple-choice tests, you have the opportunity to challenge the exam answer key during a protest review session. You can obtain more information about the protest review session and the process in our protest procedures. In addition, you will also be able to appeal the score for any of the tests that make up your examination.

For more information on the appeal process, you can download the Appeal Completion Checklist of steps to appeal your score through the Online Application System.

Change of Personal Information

In order for you to receive communications from DCAS regarding your exam, it is important that you keep your contact address up to date. If you fail to update your address, you may miss an opportunity for appointment from the list. If any of your personal information changes after filing for an exam (ex. Social Security number, name, address, telephone, or email address), you must notify the exams team by completing a data correction form.
