TEACHER CERTIFICATION

NYSTCE EXAMS

Your exam score results will be reported to both you and to the New York State Education Department. There is no need to send your scores to Albany, or include a copy of those scores with your application for certification.

A total score of 220 or higher is needed to pass each test. Any total score below 220 is not passing. There is no limit to the number of times you may register and take the exams. If you do not achieve a passing score on the exam the first time, you may take it again. However, keep in mind that you must submit a new registration form and payment for each test you take.

We do not have copies of your score reports. To obtain them you must contact the NYSTCE testing company.
