The North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) is a computer-based examination given by the pharmacy board in your state under the auspices of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy. This exam must be taken in order to practice in the field of pharmacy in your state. As of March, 2011, a passing score for the NAPLEX exam is 75. If you have recently taken this exam, it can be stressful to wait for your test scores, but it is possible to receive your NAPLEX score by following a few methods.

Wait for your official test scores to be mailed to you after taking the exam. NAPLEX test results are mailed out seven business days after taking the NAPLEX exam.

Visit the official website of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy to find out if you can access your score results online. Certain candidates of some states who registered online for the NAPLEX before March 23, 2011, can access test scores online. Check the website to see if your state is listed; only listed states provide scores online.

If your state is listed, go to the “NAPLEX and MPJE Score Results” page of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy website and click on “Log In to Access Your Score Results” and enter your username and password.

Click on the “NAPLEX/MPJE Score Results” tab to view your NAPLEX scores. Remember, the passing score for the NAPLEX exam is 75.

Contact the testing center where you took the NAPLEX if you have not received your official scores after seven business days.
