Architect Registration Examination (ARE)


Reviews, Challenges, and Appeals

There are no provisions in the Board’s regulations that permit a review of an ARE division, challenge of multiple-choice questions, or the appeal of an ARE result.

As stated on page 20 of the ARE Guidelines, a review procedure is available to a candidate ONLY if a board of architecture permits reviews of failed examinations. In jurisdictions where permitted, a candidate may challenge a multiple-choice question incorrectly answered. NCARB does not permit challenges to a graphic vignette.
