Architect Registration Examination (ARE) Statistics
The information contained in the following reports represents the performance of candidates on divisions of the national Architect Registration Examination (ARE). Candidates are listed under a particular school based on transcripts received by the Board which delineate the degree earned by the candidate.
Care should be taken in interpreting this information since many variables may affect scores, such as period of time over which data was collected, length and type of work experience obtained prior to taking the exam, and number of times the exam was taken. The Board will continue to refine this data over time to minimize the variables. In the meantime, in the interest of accuracy, the Board requests that any reprint or reuse of this information also reflect its limitations.
