How do I get my results from the attorney exam?

Examination test grades are available approximately two months after the exam. Grade information will automatically be sent to applicants by mail as soon as they are available. Re-grade information will be provided by mail as soon as they are processed. All re-grades are processed at the same time and results are mailed simultaneously. No status information will be available until after the re-grades are mailed. After you have passed the examination, your notification will be mailed to you and will include a registration data sheet and a provisional number. The provisional number allows you to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office during the Official Gazette public comment period. When using the provisional number it must be preceded by the letter "P" to indicate provisional status and you may not advertise yourself as registered.
