The NBDE Part I at a Glance

The National Board Dental Examination Part I is scored on a scale of 49-99. A scaled score of 75 or above is considered a passing score. This scaled score is produced from your raw score (the total number of questions you answered correctly). The scaled scores can be easily converted into percentiles using information received with your score report.

You will receive your score report approximately 6-8 weeks after your exam date. The dean of your dental school will also receive a copy of your scores. Additional copies are available upon written request.
