Though I was tickled pink that I passed the CPC exam, the conformation letter did not display the actual scores. Is there a way to find out what your actual scores are?:confused:

Excellent question! If you find out, please let me know. I've been pondering the same question ever since I passed back in 2005.

Great leadership

Thanks abishard!

That's great news Rhonda. Not knowing my exam score prevents me from building my profile when writing letters to those elite coding jobs; especially management positions.

Has anybody noticed the wonderful advanced changes happening ever since President Pew took the helm of the Academy? E.g. CEU process (although a little heavier on the wallet), new chapter development; etc.

Let me know what you think?

That's great. I would have liked to have known mine as well. Will we be able to go back and get them?

My biggest confirmation was seeing the CPC behind my name when I logged on. However, you can go to My Account- My Events- Past Events- Details and you should see your test and the results if they are available yet.

AS of 1-1-09 they are now going back to letting you know the test scores in the 3 sections of the exam. I know for 07 and 08 io=you CANNOT get a test score only PASS or FAIL.

Why need score?

I do not understand this hysteria about knowing your score.

How will you feel if you lose out on your dream job because your competitor's score was 1 point higher?

Do you ask your doctor what his/her place was in med school. What score s/he got in anatomy?

Do you ask your CPA what his/her score was on the CPA exam?

Do you ask your attorney what his/her score was on the LSAT?

No ... the credential is the credential. It's been earned; the exam was passed. End of subject.

Sheesh.

Well stated.... I've heard other's recently state they wish AAPC would have stuck with the Pass/Fail.

I like knowing my score for my own personal interest; however, I would never dream of putting my test score on my resume. As far as I'm concerned, whether you achieved a 98% or a 70%, you are still a CPC.

The only complaint I've ever had about the AAPC was that when I took the test they did not give me my scores. I am glad to hear that they have changed that process. It is only natural to want to know how you did. Just like in school when you want to see your grade on a test. Those of us that passed the test by the skin of our teeth would want to know which section we didn't do so well in, in order to help brush-up our skills on that section. Also, if you you fail the first time around, if you know your scores then you know what to study prior to your 2nd attempt at the test.

Scores - The reason I like to know scores

The reason I like to know scores for the areas is to satisfy the quest for improvement, to be the best I personally can. Knowing those weak spots provides that opportunity. Kudos to all those who seek to elevate their knowledge in order to help those healthcare teams they serve be the best possible in their field. America can use more of that, to be certain. Thanks, Rhonda, for helping the AAPC to serve we who count on it to keep current in our chosen careers.

Score

xrn5122, I presume you mean where on the AAPC site.
Just log in and if you have passed it will say welcome, your name CPC. if the results aren't yet available it will say 'pending'. If you have passed/failed, it will give your %score but you won't get a breakdown of each section.

I would like to obtain my test results to see where my strength and weakness are and which sections in coding I can focus on finding a job.

Does the mandatory 'break up scores' for each section still in vogue or just overall pass credentials of 70% will do ? I would like to have the most recent and the reliable answer for this,please.
Thank you

I took my CPC test less than a year ago. The information I had about it was, and is, that: You must pass each section with at least a 70%. If you pass, you do not receive a breakdown of your score from each section, only an overall score. I can still view my score from 9 months ago on my AAPC home page down on the left hand corner under "Purchases" by selecting my purchase for the exam. Hope this helps a bit.

CPC Exam scores

Hello :)

I was wondering if anyone knows how long it takes to get your CPC exam results online? I could never find a clear answer to this.

Most people told me they got their results (online) the following Friday after they took the exam (which was on a Saturday.)

I took my exam on 09/25/2010. Can I expect to see my results today? I am so super nervous!!!

Thank you,

Morgan

I took my exam on 09/10/10 and when I logged in on 09/17/10 I had my results. It was actually faster than I had originally thought it would take! Good luck!

Didn't pass my CPC exam, THIS TIME...

Took it Sept. 18th! But I didn't feel that I had passed it.. and didn't deserve to. I took too long on some of the E/M section questions/scenarios and then by the time I got to the end, I had to guess... And we all know that in a real coding job.. you shouldn't and can't "guess"... But will take it again in Dec. So I've already started reviewing! Also, have to stay on top of my medical terminology and abbreviations...

I didn't heed to the suggestions.. when I should have.. when taking the exam. I need to look these up in the discussion forums and make sure my coding books are marked so I can find the codes quicker.

CPC Exam Score

I took the CPC exam on October 30th and found out via the AAPC website that I had passed, 7 days later. The page did have a view score option, then. The documentation I received back in the mail, 6 days after my score posted online (and on my birthday), showed that I had passed and gave the score, but no other details about weaknesses and strengths.

I just thought I'd pass that along for those who were wondering. Thank goodness I passed. Bless Carol Buck's review guide. Anyone thinking of taking it should buy it and the AAPC practice tests; they're both such valuable exam prep.

Finding results

You can find your exam results by logging in with your username/password, highlighting your mouse over the "My AAPC" button, clicking on "Purchases/Items" and then clicking on the "Exams" tab. From there by clicking on "Details" you will find the details where next to results it will either saying pending, pass or fail. If it has been graded you can click on "View Score" to see the specific details.

I wonder how long they mail the letter of passing or not.

I just took my test CPC 2nd retake on saturday dec 8. I don't know my score and I don't know yet if I passed or not. I'm just nervous on what to look at.

I did feel much better taking exam 2nd time better than the first but I don't know if I passed and if my score is much better than my first time. Sometimes I'm dreaming that I passed but then is that dream true?? would I fail and pay another test? Let's hope not.

And I would hate to pay another exam again since I currently don't work and have much money to do so.

Exam results

I took my test on the 13th and had my results by the 17th. It gave me the actual overall passing score but did not break it down into each section.

I have taken the exam twice and failed both times, one 66% and the other a 65% - it tells you which area you failed on the test, on the AAPC website but not which questions were wrong. I.e. every section you scored less than 70% they showed 4000, 3000 etc etc. anything that you passed 70% or above, they do not show. Hope that helps!
