Your exam results will be reported as either Pass or Fail – you will not receive a scaled score.
By applying to take the PJET, you authorize NABP to release your exam results to the New Hampshire board of pharmacy. NABP will forward your exam results to the board, unless NABP has withheld or invalidated your results, as described in this Bulletin.
Only the individual board of pharmacy has the authority to issue an advanced license for pharmacy technicians. NABP posting a passing exam result does not constitute an advanced license to perform the duties of technicians. Boards will not accept examination results posted online via your NABP e-Profile for purposes of obtaining licensure. Online exam reports are for candidate use only.
The PJET is the means by which board of pharmacy assess pharmacy technician candidates’ knowledge of pharmacy jurisprudence. Any other use of individual PJET results is inappropriate and not condoned by NABP.
To receive a PJET result, you must have completed at least 107 questions on the examination.
Candidates completing fewer than 107 questions will not have their exam results reported. Candidates who complete at least 107 questions, but fewer than 120 questions, will have a penalty applied and their exam results adjusted to reflect the number of questions that remained unanswered, which may have an effect on exam results. It is in your best interest to answer all questions presented.
Because of the secure nature of the PJET, no review of the test questions is allowed.
The PJET passing standard has been established by a panel of pharmacy experts, and the ability level that defines the passing standard is the same for all PJET administrations.
You may receive exam results or an official exam report for the PJET directly from the boards of pharmacy, depending on the jurisdiction that issues your license.
Specific questions about PJET results evaluation should be emailed to CompAssess@nabp.pharmacy.
You will be able to access your exam results in approximately 7 business days after the exam date. To view your exam results, log in to your e-Profile and click on the Exam Results tab in the Exam Services section.
A highly rigorous process is used to ensure the accuracy of examination results, including a parallel scoring method involving independent scoring systems. Therefore, it is extremely unlikely that your exam results will be changed as a result of the rescore process.
However, you may request a review of your exam results by purchasing a rescore. Rescores may be purchased after the results are released to the board of pharmacy and within 60 days of the exam date. Log in to your e-Profile to submit the request by selecting the Purchase Rescore option under the Application History tab.
There is a $200 rescore fee for each exam.
You will be unable to cancel the request once you purchase the rescore. There are no refunds for rescore requests.
Upon verification that the exam was delivered as intended, and that no technical anomaly occurred during the test session, the candidate’s score is recomputed via an independent scoring tool. The rescore process does not include the review of item content.
You will be advised in writing whether the original result was deemed accurate. The information will be sent to you via email within 4 weeks.
On occasion, exam results are placed on hold for further evaluation. Exam results may be subject to a hold as part of NABP’s routine quality control and assurances processes. Exams are evaluated to ensure compliance with delivery and scoring models.
Exam results may also be held due to an incident at the testing center or an observed difference in a candidate’s performance on 2 or more examination attempts, or if a candidate’s exam result is unusually low. In the event of an exam result hold related to candidate misconduct, NABP will notify the respective board of pharmacy and the candidate within 7 business days. Should you receive notification of an exam hold, there will be explicit instructions regarding the action that you need to take in order to respond to NABP’s inquiries. All inquiries regarding exam result holds should be addressed to CompAssess@nabp.pharmacy.
NABP reserves the right to determine, in its sole discretion and at any time, whether to withhold the reporting of an examination result, or invalidate one or more examination results of an individual or a group of individuals. The withholding or invalidating of one or more examination results of an individual, or a group of individuals, may occur prior to, during, or after examination administration.
NABP may invalidate an exam result or withhold the reporting of an exam result for any reason including, without limitation, the following:
NABP’s right to determine whether to withhold or invalidate an examination result is not in any way waived or modified because NABP processed an examination application form, authorized a candidate to sit for an examination, scored an examination, or reported an exam result.
