The amount of time between taking a test and getting results varies, but in general you should count on at least several weeks and sometimes as long as three or four months for exam results. Why does it take so long? The reasons vary: many examinations come from New York State Civil Service in Albany, and they process, rate and analyze exams from across the state at the same time. If the examination was decentralized, the rating and administrative processing may be done immediately or may take several weeks.
