Pennsylvania Results

Recommended Posts

All of the other states have one, we might as well too (instead of reviving one from last year with 8 pages).



Post any updates for PA here (and results when we get them).

Per the state website, the next scheduled State Board meeting is Jan 8. I do not know if the law requires the Board to approve the results, and if so if there are ways to approve the results outside of this meeting.

With that being said, the Oct 2012 results were released after the board meeting occurred. Again, I do not know if there is a connection. Also, last years results were issued to the states on Dec 19. This years results were issued Dec 5.

Sorry engncpa...I figured that would happen to a few haha



Near as I can tell, no board meeting is required as I have checked back through several exams and can find no consistency of a board meeting occurring prior to releasing the results.

April 12, 2013 results released May 22 (40 days) on June 6 (55 days) so if we go with the same schedule that puts us at a release date of Dec 19.

Ok. You're citing the date that NCEES released the results (5/23 http://ncees.org/about-ncees/news/pe-results-have-been-released-to-state-boards/) to state boards and I'm guessing 6/6 is when PA examinees actually found out the results.



Hopefully you all get results before the holidays, but using dates from the spring will not necessarily correlate with the fall. Here is my past experience from taking exams in PA:



PE Civil (4/24/09) - Results on 7/6/09 by mail (73 days); License # on 8/6/09



SE Vertical (10/28/11) - Results via email on 1/6/12 (70 days)



SE Lateral (4/14/12) - Results via email on 6/19/12 (66 days, 67 days for those who took SE Vertical the day prior)




I recall one recent anomaly when one of my coworkers took the PE Civil on 4/8/11 and actually received results on 5/26/11 (48 days). Must have been a fluke...

This is what I just got from the PA board:


"Thank you for your recent email. The Board does not need to approve them at their Board meeting. Unfortunately, the Board does not have an exact timeframe when this process will be complete. You will receive a result letter from PCS when it is complete and when NCEES releases the results, you can view the results on their website."


So there is hope to get them before January.

Thanks for biting the bullet and making contact. I was very concerned that we would have to wait for a board meeting so this is good news.

Thanks engncpa...as expected, PCS is the issue here. Just makes no sense why some PCS states come out and others do not.

I just got off the phone with a representative from PCS inquiring about VA results. The lady indicated that PCS had received the final scores yesterday, and are in the process of updating each candidate's profile.



She also indicated that the NCEES website for each candidate would be the preferred place to look when results are posted. PCS website will have the results too but she made it sound like there would be a slight delay if you were only checking PCS website.



Sounded like we should be receiving them very soon given the tone of the conversation.

I know I just read that some people from VA have results on NCEES and PCS...my guess is that since you were speaking about VA and not PA that you may get yours and we won't see a thing...

Results for VA have not been posted. A guy mentioned that someone from PCS said they should be visible on NCEES; however, they are not on any of the websites.



Still waiting.......

I had emailed them last week and got a curt response that it will be 2-3 more weeks as stated on their website and per the candidate information it takes 8-10 weeks from the exam. I haven't followed up since 12/6.

Response to an email inquiry sent to PCS regarding PA results:

Scores have not been released to candidates. Scores were just released to PCS, we are now working on loading them into each candidates file. Please allow 1-2 weeks to view your score on your NCEES account.

That sounds similar to what I was told earlier when speaking with a lady from PCS. She said scores were just released yesterday. But didn't say anything specific about time frame. I assume it will be pretty quick since all they have to do is load it into their database.

Yes, the NCEES has released the results, what sucks for PA is waiting for PCS. From what I have been told in waiting for results in the past PCS does the smaller states first and of those PA is the largest state so it is usually last, the the PA board has to approve the results. So I would say if the board is meeting on the 8th, so I would almost bet the results will be released to you guys on the 10th.

I had emailed the board and they said the board does not need to approve them at the meeting. See above.

I remember your post, and am grateful we at least don't have to wait for them just to approve the results.

Otherwise I'd suggest we bring in Chuck Norris to instill some common sense by way of a few dozen roundhouse kicks.
