MOC Score Reporting

General Pediatrics

Due to the large volume of diplomates maintaining certification in General Pediatrics, that secure examination is offered from January 1 to December 15 every year. Results are typically posted within 4 weeks of the examination.


The pediatric subspecialty examinations are offered annually during two administration windows: March 1-31 (spring) and August 15-September 30 (fall). The ABP begins scoring a subspecialty exam when the testing window closes, after which it takes up to 60 days to process results.

For all subspecialty examinations, results are available through the ABP Portfolio within 60 days of the close of the testing window.

Scoring of the spring examinations occurs in April and May, so diplomates who take the spring exams typically receive email notification by early June that results are posted in their portfolio. The fall exams are scored in October and November so diplomates should be notified in early December of their results.

Why can't I have my results at the testing center?

We conduct routine quality control activities before releasing results to make sure that the examination is psychometrically sound and the data are accurate. Learn more about Quality Control Analysis within the Scoring section.

To ensure privacy, we cannot discuss results over the phone. However, if you have not received your results in the stated time frame, please email

Can I re-take the exam if I fail?

You may re-take the exam as often as logistically possible. A re-take fee is applied for each additional attempt, but all attempts must be completed during an available administration window within the same calendar year.
