At one time the score an applicant received on the DRII qualifying examination was a factor in determining which certification designation(s) the applicant was allowed to pursue. A score of 75 or greater but less than 80 would enable the applicant to apply for the ABCP or CFCP designation. A score of 80 or greater, but less than 85 would enable the applicant to apply for the ABCP, CFCP or CBCP designation. A score of 85 or greater would allow the applicant to apply for ABCP, CFCP, CBCP or MBCP designations.
After studying those gradient requirements, DRII determined that the qualifying exam score was not an appropriate instrument to determine application eligibility for the various designations. At that time, DRII implemented a “pass/fail” approach to the exam. Anyone who passed the exam was eligible to pursue any designation that their individual experience would allow them to achieve. At that point, the numeric score became meaningless, for application purposes, and a decision was made that it was no longer necessary or beneficial to include the score in the notification letter to exam participants.
