    I'm curious about this as well; in the other direction.  Has anyone had it say there was likelihood of a preliminary pass and then it turned out it was a failing score?

    Good luck Sarah.  Fingers crossed. ;)

    Additionally, I just saw this excerpt in a Provisional Feedback post made by Ryan at NCARB:

    "The provisional feedback displayed on screen will inform you of your overall likelihood to pass or fail the division.

     
    Keep in mind, the feedback provided at the test center is fully accurate but not official, because the results have not yet undergone further statistical analysis. Because of this, a printout of the feedback will not be provided at the test center. Provisional feedback does not replace the importance of the official score report, which will still be released per the rules of your jurisdiction. Remember, your official score report contains complete information about the appointment, candidate performance, and rolling clock information. Failing score reports will continue to provide greater feedback on how you performed on each content area of the division."

    I just ended my PjM exam and I'm pretty sure I read 'likely to fail' but it was in blue letters.

    I could be mistaken, but I think I remember 'likely to fail' in red and 'likely to pass' in blue.

    Anyone if the 'likely to...' is in a designated color?

    Hi Jamie,

    The "likely to..." feedback is always in blue, regardless of the pass/fail outcome.

    Took a test this morning and got a feedback “likely to pass”. Will let you know if it flips in the official report. I am really curious about the NCARB’s explaination that says “results have not yet undergone further statistical analysis.” Are they grading on a curve?

    Damir...nope.  Absolutely no grading on a curve.

    Check out some of the responses above in this very same thread (and several other threads) as to why score in the test center is preliminary.  Unless you cheated, the score won't flip.  And I assume you didn't cheat.
