After the Exam


Once you complete your exam, a digital copy is transferred to the Software Certifications servers in the United States. No exam results are provided at a Pearson VUE Testing Center. All exam results are posted on the Software Certifications Customer Portal.
The estimated time frame in which your examination results will be available in your Customer Portal account depends on the exam type.


Results will be within posted 24 hours after the exam.


Results will be posted 4 to 6 days after the exam. This provides the essay graders the necessary time to receive and grade the constructive response questions on the exam.
Once your results have been declared you will receive an email notification letting you know your results are available for viewing on your Customer Portal account. At times, results may take longer due to heavy volumes of exams being graded.


Once the results are announced in the Portal, a certificate for those candidates who pass the examination is made available on the online portal.

As of April 1, 2020, ISCB decided not to send physical copies of the certificates. An online copy of the certificate is available in the Portal by clicking on the View Certificate link found on the My Certifications page.

In case of any concerns regarding your certificate, please write to with the your name, email id,
