CCS Exam Results: Immediate Scoring Now Available

CCS
by Mary Beth York, CCS, CCS-P, CIC

After months of anxious waiting on the part of CCS candidates, immediate scoring is now available. Immediate scoring became available for test-takers starting August 9, 2019.

For those who took the CCS exam May 1 through August 4 there is still one more step in the process that must be completed prior to releasing your scores. AHIMA has indicated that candidates should expect to receive their results on or around August 19, 2019.

(The 2019 CCS exam was launched on May 1, 2019 and immediate scoring was suspended during the beta testing and data validation process.)

AHIMA has indicated they will send a message to all candidates letting them know they should be receiving their results in the mail. I highly recommend candidates check on the Pearson Vue portal and AHIMA website to see if their results are posted there. It is most likely a quicker way to get your exam results.

    Hi Mary Beth,

    I took the CCS exam on 8/13 and did not receive my results 🙁 I contacted AHIMA and the person I spoke to was unsure why.

      Kim – thank you for your note. While AHIMA had indicated on August 12 that the CCS was out of beta, we have heard from several other CCS Exam Prep students that immediate scoring did not actually occur until August 16. I am sure AHIMA will catch up soon with those candidates who are still waiting to find out their results.

      I hope you did well. Best wishes.

    I called AHIMA this week and the representative stated that I should receive my CCS exam results by August 29th. I took my test on 8/6/19

    I took the exam May 29th and still have not received my exam results. I’m curious if others who took the exam during the beta period have received their results yet? This is a good opportunity for me to practice patience 🙂
