The pass rates, by division, for all candidates (first-time and repeat) who took the ARE are listed above. Data are the most recent available from Thomson Prometric, NCARB’s testing consultant.

As developed by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, the ARE assesses a candidate’s knowledge, skills, and abilities to provide the various services required in the practice of architecture. It has been adopted for use by all U.S. registration boards and the Canadian provincial architectural associations as the registration examination for all candidates seeking architectural licensing.
