The Code Council reserves the right to revoke or withhold any examination scores if, in its sole opinion, there is adequate reason to question their validity. Reasons are:
· Giving or receiving assistance with answers during testing
· Using unauthorized materials during testing
· Failing to abide by the rules presented or directions from the proctor(s)
· Attempting to, or removing examination materials or questions from the testing center.
In cases of examination irregularities which are suspected at testing centers, the scores of the individual(s) involved will not be released unless approved by the Code Council. Additional sanctions may be authorized by the Board, which may include restrictions on retesting for up to three (3) years.
Some scores may be rendered invalid because of circumstances beyond the examinee’s control, such as faulty examination materials or mistiming. In accordance with the Certification Committee Rules of Procedure, these situations will be investigated; when such occurrences result in cancellation of an examinee’s scores, the Code Council will arrange for a makeup examination for the examinees concerned.
