Those with total scale scores after one reading below 1390 fail the examination. If the applicant’s total scale score is at least 1390 but less than 1440 after one reading, all of the applicant’s answers are read a second time by a different set of graders. If the applicant’s averaged total scale score after two readings is 1440 or higher, the applicant passes the examination. Applicants with no grading discrepancies of more than 10 raw points between first and second read grades on any question with averaged total scale scores of less than 1440 fail the examination. Applicants with grading discrepancies more than 10 raw points between first and second read grades on any question whose averaged total scale score is less than 1440 will have those answers referred to the Team member supervising the grading of that particular question for resolution of the discrepancy (Phase III). The Team member will assign a resolution grade to the answer and the resolution grade will replace the averaged grade for that question. If the applicant’s total scale score after resolution grading is 1440 or higher, that applicant passes the examination.

Usually the Board rereads the papers of approximately ten percent of those persons taking the exam whose initial scores are below the minimum passing score. The examiners look to see if an answer might be worth another point or two, or if the overall quality of an applicant’s answers may adequately demonstrate minimum competence. As a result of the re-reading, some grades go up, some go down, and some remain unchanged. After the regrading, all scores are final and not appealable. All grading is done anonymously.
