2). Results are mailed to you in approximately three weeks after you have taken the test. JCNDE examination regulation prohibits reporting results by telephone, fax, email, or in person. The truth is that the results may take longer than three weeks.

3). Only the total number of correct answers you are selected are counted. This is then adjusted for any minor differences in difficulty across NBDHE forms, in other words, scaled.

Recommendation: if you know the topic, think hard and hopefully you will choose the right answer. If you know that you do not know the topic, and if you know that thinking will not help, just move on and save time for questions that you do know better. For more information, visit http://www.ada.org/~/media/JCNDE/pdfs/nbdhe_examinee_guide.ashx).
