Score Report

You will receive an immediate pass/fail score upon completion of your exam attempt at your testing facility. The score report will display the percentage of items in each section that you answered correctly for your exam. You can obtain a copy of your score report at any time by logging into your Pearson VUE account.

Welcome E-mail, Certificate Access, Digital Badge

Your email will contain your SAS ID and password to this system.
