Also asked, how many questions are on the NCE?
Similarly, how long should you study for the NCE? The NCE consists of 200 multiple-choice questions, and you'll have 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete it. While there are 200 questions on the exam, 40 of these questions are being field-tested for future exams and are not scored. Therefore, the maximum possible score on the exam is 160.
Also, what if I fail the NCE exam?
If you fail to pass that exam as well, you will have one more chance to automatically reregister. If you need to take the exam more than three times, you must resubmit the application. You must also pay the full application fee of $275 before being cleared to sign up for another exam date.
What happens after I pass the NCE?
After you pass the NCE and graduate, you have three years to complete and submit documentation of 3,000 hours of counseling work experience and 100 hours of direct counseling supervision completed over a minimum of 24 months. This will be the final step in completing your board certification.
