(a)  After an examination, the applicant shall be informed, in writing only, by the Commission or its authorized representatives as to the results of his or her examination.  If a passing score is obtained, such notification constitutes certification by the Commission.  After each examination, a list of those passing shall be drawn up and made a part of the permanent records of the Commission.  Upon completion of the examination process, applicants who pass the examination shall be issued a certificate.

(b)  Under normal circumstances, neither the examination grade nor the examination paper of any applicant shall be made available to anyone other than the members of the Commission and its authorized representatives who assist in conducting and grading the examinations.  The examination papers shall be held by the Commission in a secure location for a period of six months following notification to the applicant.  Questions by the applicant concerning the examination must be made in writing to the Commission within six months of the notification date.  An applicant who fails to pass an examination, and who is still eligible to retake the examination under their current application, shall be entitled to and notified of the privilege to review his or her examination, within six months of the applicant's failed exam, in the presence of one or more Commission members or its authorized representative.
