As with every quarter, I get reports from students that a few of their scores have been withheld for score verification.
Most of the time, this is a very nervewracking time for the student, and I generally try to put their mind at ease by explaining the reasons why it could potentially be withheld.
The main reasons are:
- Abnormal response pattern (easy questions wrong, hard questions correct)
- Ultra low scoring
- Large score increases
- Testing center incident
I explain more about these points in this handy video:
Unfortunately, after you fill out the FSBPT survey, you simply have to wait to find out if you passed or failed the NPTE. Until you get the report, I do recommend that you do your best to keep your mind off of the possibilities to help the time pass more quickly. In almost all cases, it is totally resolved by 10 business days after the exam.
Hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any questions!
