when I will know result pmp exam

If you are wondering when you will get your PMP exam results, I have good news. 

You will receive your PMP certification exam results before leaving your testing desk.

Once you submit your answers, there will be a short survey. After that, the display will turn white for a few moments, and your test result will be displayed on the screen.

If you have passed the exam, you will receive a congratulation from the PMI and a message saying that you will get your certificate within four to six weeks at the address you provided to the PMI when filling out the application form.

You can use the title “PMP” immediately after passing the exam.

If you have failed the exam, you will receive a condolence message from the PMI.

You will receive a congratulatory email from the PMI within one to two weeks after passing the PMP exam. Then, you can see your name in the PMI certification registry and your certificate status in your PMI account.

Many professionals worry when they do not see their status updated in their account; they expect it to be immediate.

When I passed my PMP exam, this information was available within 24 hours, but these days, it takes one to two weeks to update.


You will receive your PMP exam results immediately after completing the test, and the Pearson VUE staff member will give you a printout of your result report. You will receive an email from the PMI within one to two weeks, and afterward, you can see your certification information on the PMI registry and in your account. You will receive your physical certificate within four to six weeks.

Good luck with your exam!
