Exam Results

The OTE is scored and analyzed by a psychometrician. The scores are then broken down and ranked based on PGY year; however, PGY-1 scores are not included in the national averages. International programs are also scored separately. Candidates will receive their test scores within 9 weeks of taking the exam.
