The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) reports examination results for the national examinations as "pass" or "fail." No scores are reported. Candidates who fail the examinations will be provided with a diagnostic report to indicate performance in those sections attempted. More information about this policy may be obtained from the NCEES website. Do NOT contact the Board requesting your score; the scores will not be provided. Beginning with the April 2009 examinations, the results for the California Special Civil [Seismic Principles and Engineering Surveying] examinations will be reported as "pass" or "fail." No scores will be reported. Candidates who fail the examinations will be provided with a diagnostic report to indicate performance in those sections attempted.
