I took the exam on April 20th. Curious to know how long it takes for the results to come and do they email or send in mail??

Hi Jeff.

I took the exam at IUSA and it took about 2 weeks to get the results. They send the results via snail mail and image submission results via email.

Good luck.

I've found that the results of most exams come about 3 days after you've given up hope of ever seeing them, and a day or so (sometimes longer) after you've completely forgotten you're waiting for them.

The same is true of almost anything I've bought on ebay. :)

I, too, took the exam at IUSA, but for me, it took 4 weeks to hear back. Lots of fingernail biting, but it was worth the wait! ;)

All depends on how fast the liaison gets your test mailed out. Mine wasn't so fast, so it took 3.5 weeks to find out. If they get it out quickly, should take about two weeks.

Good luck!

Hi Jeff, nice to see you here!

Craig said that he was going to end out the test the Tuesday or Wednesday of the week we took it so I imagine we'll get the results the first week of May.

I put the exams in the FedEx Box last Wednesday evening. I am hoping all 3 of you passed and will now be onto the print submission part.

Hi Jeff;

Congratulations !!! See, I told you letting out a scream first would chase away all the butterflies. ;) I'm sure your print submissions will do equally well.

Are you coming to the June meeting ?

Just reading this thread makes my stomach flip-flop :) A bunch of us just took the exam on Sunday, so I know I've got a little longer to wait!!

Hi Louise;

I hope it's not exactly the same letter ... could be embarassing if it started off Dear Jeff; ! :D

GOOD LUCK ... you know I have my fingers, eyes, and toes crossed for you.

Okay - I just had to share a funny story... I just got a call from the nanny telling me that the mail came and there was an envelope from PPA. OPEN IT! I ask (in my most non-anxious voice)!! Well, sure enough, I got a beautiful certificate for my PPA merit from Jeff's class in the mail... not my test results. Hmf! Psych!

Hi Heather;

Well, at least that is better than junk mail. And, now you can display it on your studio wall. I have all mine up but they do take up a LOT of room. I'm sure your clients will be impressed. If it's one of your 1st I'd suggest mounting it on mount board (I use self stick) and display it on an easel or some other prominent place.

I guess I better get those tests back to PPA so you can get that letter in the mail....

Oh, and don't confuse the next letter from PPA with the Merit certificate for taking my class with the one containing your CPP results.

If only I could find a pencil to address the envelope.. there must be one around here somewhere...:eek: :D :D

Oh, Don... you're such a tease!!!! At least, I really, really, really HOPE you're teasing. :) I'll assume from now on that any 8.5x11 envelope with cardboard inside is probably NOT my test results!

I'll send you a whole case of pencils, Don, if you tell me that you're kidding!!

Test results come in a blue letter-sized envelope, if I remember correctly- and it's from 'certified photographer' or something like that. Looks diff from the usual PPA stuff.

Ok, you're right... Just teasing.... I didn't need a pencil to get the tests back to PPA as they gave me a preprinted Fedex label..

As I recall, my results came in a #10 envelope (5 years ago). They were tri-folded.... I should be hearing from PPA about re-enlisting any time now... But you really should be getting another Merit certificate in the mail any time now too....

Woohoo! You rock, Mr. Chick! Now that we're starting to rack up the service merits, it's time to start racking up some print merits!
