Update as of October 8, 2021: What Comes Next for September 2021 Examination Candidates?

Now that the examination is over, you may be wondering what happens next. We have outlined what will be happening over the next few months so you can know what to expect.

Examination Scoring & Analysis

Once the examination administration closes, the post-administration analysis begins. The IBCLC examination results are reviewed in all 17 languages. This careful review takes time, but, ultimately, it is to provide the most fair and accurate results to IBCLC test-takers.

You can learn more about examination scoring in the November 2020 IBLCE Briefing.

Release of Results in the IBLCE Online Credential Management System
(Planned completion by the end of 2021)

After scoring and analysis is complete, IBLCE will upload your score to your personalised account in IBLCE’s online credential management system. You will receive an email when your score is ready, which will include instructions to help you access your score and options for certification verification.

Registry Updated
(Planned completion by the end of January 2022)

The online Public Registry will then be updated to include the results of the September 2021 examination administration.

Certificate Mailing

Certificates will follow examination results and registry update by post in 2022.

We know that after spending so much time preparing for the IBCLC examination that you are anxious to receive your results, so we thank you for your patience.

Remember that you can track this progress at the September 2021 IBCLC Examination Candidate Dashboard.
