When do we get exam results?
Candidates will be notified of their results by email, and a mark will be indicated in the event of failure. Examination papers will not be returned to candidates. Please note that the minimum time for marking exams is two months.
How can I appeal my mark?
In accordance with the Examination Board’s regulations, any candidate who fails the examination may appeal the result within one month of receiving notification of the results. A $230 fee is payable for such an appeal and will be refunded if the appeal is successful. The appeal decision is final.
How are the exams marked?
Every paper is carefully read and evaluated by two markers, who must agree on the final mark. If they do not agree, the paper is referred to a third marker, whose decision is final. The passing score is 70%. Any examination paper with a mark that falls between 65% and 70% is reviewed very carefully to ensure that the pass or failure is clearly justified.
Why is a fee charged for appeals?
Neither CTTIC, STIBC, nor the other provincial associations can provide this certification service without a reasonable means to recover their costs.
