Of course. However, you must wait 48 hours before taking the test again. Pro tip: Use those 48 hours to review the study guides and class resources. If you do not pass three times, you will be blocked re-testing for 30 days.
No. Once the test timer begins it cannot be paused. It is not recommended to close the page or browser during your testing.
The test timer starts as soon as you view the first page of questions. Chances are, you started the test at a previous time but closed it before finishing. The system can't send notifications of expired time while you're not currently logged in. Thus, you'll receive notification of not passing the exam upon returning to the page.
Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience. The test will unlock itself 48 hours after you received the notification that your time expired.
Not at this time.
The score is calculated by the number of incorrect answers divided by the total number of questions. Since the individual test sections contain a different number of questions, the section percentages are not weighted evenly when averaging the scored based on the sections. Re-evaluate your score using the above formula and if your score still seems incorrect let us know on this form.

The HubSpot Design Certification has two parts: a test and a practicum. In order to get certified, you'll need to pass the test and successfully complete a practicum. The practicum details are included in the email you'll receive when you pass the test.
The HubSpot Design Certification is an individual testing process. In order to complete the certification, you will take the test on your own and complete the practicum with your personal design work. Lastly, submit your practicum using the same email address with which you passed the test to ensure that your certification status is processed properly.
If you've ever unsubscribed from any HubSpot emails, you may not receive the email notifying you that your practicum has been approved.
If it's been more than 5 business days since your practicum was submitted and you're still waiting for results, check your certification status by clicking Resources > Certifications and locating the HubSpot Design Certification.
If you passed your test more than two weeks ago and your practicum has yet to be approved, you may receive an email like this.
If you’ve already submitted your practicum, please disregard the email. Your practicum is added to our grading queue the moment that you submit it.
Unfortunately, we cannot reset your password. However, you can create a new user with the correct email address and if necessary, we can transfer any existing certification to that new account.
