Architect Registration Examination (ARE)


Candidates will be notified by NCARB via email when their examination results are ready for viewing and/or downloading. Results are reported as PASS or FAIL only - there are no numeric scores available. The Board recommends candidates keep the email address on-file with NCARB up-to-date in order to receive timely notification of examination results.

Diagnostic information regarding area(s) of weakness is displayed in the bottom half on the reverse side of the ARE Score Report for failed divisions. This is the only diagnostic information available. This feedback is designed to identify general areas of weakness to assist a candidate in obtaining additional experience or knowledge during the mandatory waiting period.
