PMP® Exam Change – No Score Results Aug 31

Home The Savvy PM Blog PMP® Exam Change – No Score Results Aug 31

102 There has always been a silver lining in the storm clouds of the PMP® Exam.  You didn’t have to wait for your results.  Immediately at the end of the exam, you would find out if you had passed (or failed).  No waiting for a verdict…no anxious trips to the mail box.  Unfortunately, that silver lining will disappear for several weeks starting with the exam change slated for August 31.

This week, we received the following communication from PMI:

As we transition to the new examination, PMI must update its examination reporting processes. This means for a short period of time examination results will not be available immediately following the examination. There will be a 4–6 week period between taking the examination and receiving the results via email. We know this will be disappointing to candidates, but please let them know the delay is necessary any time an exam changes to validate the new examination structure. In particular, please note the following details about the delivery of the examination results.

  • Candidates who take the updated computer-based examination on or after 31 August will not receive immediate results at the Prometric testing center.
  • Candidates taking the updated paper-based examination can also expect a delay in receiving their examination results.
  • Once PMI validates the new examination structure (by mid-October) we will be able to resume providing individuals with immediate results at the Prometric testing center.
  • Each PMP® candidate will receive a communication to notify them when their results are available at
  • All candidates can expect to receive their examination results by mid-October.

Now you’ve got another reason to get focused, study hard, and take the exam before August 31!
