Grade Letter Information

The letter of your rank corresponds to the grade you received and the number corresponds to the number of candidates tied with the same score.  All candidates who received the same grade are then ranked in ascending order according to the last four digits of their social security number. 

Example:  Rank  “B7” = the ‘B’ indicates the score was the second  highest grade earned for this exam.  The number  ‘7’ indicates there were more than one candidate who received the same grade –  in this case at least seven candidates.
