Alert! Candidates must complete all divisions of the ARE before eligibility for the CSE.

California Supplemental Examination (CSE)

Appeals or Reviews

A candidate who was unsuccessful with the CSE and alleges they were significantly disadvantaged due to a significant procedural error or adverse environmental conditions during the examination may request a review of their administration. A request for review and all supporting documentation must be submitted in writing to the Board within 30 days from the date on which the examination result was released to the candidate. The Board may take such action as it deems appropriate; however, in no instance will the review result in the reversal of a score. Due to exam security, candidates will not be permitted to see their exams.
