The AAMA sends you an official report containing the actual score that you achieved on the exam approximately 10 weeks after you take the exam or at least by the 20th day of the month after you take the exam, providing you also fulfill all application requirements. The AAMA only issues the Certified Medical Assistant credential after you meet these two main prerequisites.

The application requires verification that you completed all coursework, including a practicum. Nonrecent graduates must also submit transcripts with the application. If you are CMA Category 3, you must provide your CMA (AAMA) certificate number.

The AAMA Certifying Board determines the minimum passing score for the CMA exam. Every three years, the AAMA conducts its own studies to arrive at a consensus about minimum score standards. Based upon its studies, the AAMA considers 430 to be a minimum passing score, as of 2015.

If you do not pass the exam, you may submit another application and fee and retake the test at your earliest convenience. The AAMA allows initial candidates three attempts total.
