Exam Results

Exam results are expected to be available approximately 4 to 6 weeks after the close of an exam window. Whenever NBMTM introduces new test forms of the BCMTMS exam, NBMTM conducts a thorough analysis of the exam items and the performance of candidates to identify the minimum passing score representing basic competence in the subject matter. NBMTM recruits several subject matter experts to conduct this analysis. NBMTM would then convene to discuss the recommendation from the subject matter experts and approve the minimum passing score. Rigorous quality control processes and data quality review steps are completed to ensure results are presented accurately to all tested candidates.
