What happens if I don’t pass the examination? Can I take the next examination offered?

You will be able to apply to resit the examination at the next examination seating in that language. If you are taking the examination in English, then you have the option of the April or September examination. If you are taking the examination in a non-English language, you will be able to apply to sit the September examination. Information about reapplying will be provided at the time of the examination results. If you don’t pass the IBCLC examination, then you are eligible to receive a 50% discounted examination fee for the next three examination attempts or up to three years following the first time you don’t pass. Both initial and recertification examination candidates are eligible for the discounted rate. The fee amount can be found in the IBLCE Fee Guide.
