Scoring & Results
Exam results are emailed approximately 10 weeks after a candidate takes the exam, and the exams are scored with the result of ‘passed’ or ‘failed’, and the minimum passing benchmark for each exam is set by the ISFM. The purpose of this approach is to ensure fairness to candidates across administrations based on the difficulty of each exam, and the ISFM does not release the minimum passing benchmark.
