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 mail 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, by email or by fax.
