CFP® Exam: Scoring & Results
The CFP® certification exam is a pass-or-fail exam. Each test question counts for 1 point each. Passing is based on the candidate's total score across all sections of the exam.
Receiving Your CFP® Exam Results
Preliminary results are provided to you immediately after taking the exam. Official results are provided to candidates by email approximately 4 weeks following the close of the testing window. If you do not pass, you'll receive a diagnostic report of your exam performance across the Principal Knowledge Topics, with indications of your relative strengths and weaknesses so that you know where to focus your studies for the next time you take the exam.
CFP Board does not disclose official exam results over the phone, by text, or by fax.
Exam DAY Issues
CFP Board reviews all exam-related issues identified by examinees and investigates significant exam-day issues with the test delivery vendor. If you have an issue to report, please contact CFP Board at email@example.com no later than 10 business days after the close of the exam window to identify exam-related issues that require further investigation.
