Exam Rescore Policy

The ABA offers a rescoring service to physicians who wish for their exam to be reevaluated. However, examinees are strongly discouraged from requesting this service as the ABA employs extensive and rigorous quality control procedures to ensure the accuracy of results and has no record of a discrepancy ever being detected.

An exam rescore is limited to verifying that the responses as scored were made by the examinee and were correctly transformed into a scaled score. The rescore service is not a review of the exam content, what the correct answer should be, the acceptability of testing conditions or a reconsideration of the passing standard.

If you wish to request an exam rescore, you must send a completed request form to the ABA postmarked within six weeks of the official release date of your exam results. A check for $250 made payable to the American Board of Anesthesiology must accompany the request form.

The ABA will communicate results of the rescore to you within six weeks of receiving your request.
