Regardless of a candidate’s area or subject matter, all the CLEP tests are scored on a 20 to 80 scale. To calculate the overall score, a college board identifies a scaled score and a raw score. Raw scores give a single point to each correctly answered question, while the scaled score is based on the other candidates on the same test.

Candidates receive an unofficial score immediately after completing the test. Official scores are processed in 4 to 6 weeks.
