How do I appeal a LEED Green Associate exam question?


During the exam, candidates may submit comments on any question(s) they believe to contain technical errors in content by using the comment button located in the navigation bar. In order to challenge an exam question, the candidate must have commented on the question and provided an explanation of their concerns. After the exam, inform GBCI that you have left comments on your exam; in your correspondence, be sure to note the email address used to sign up for the exam, as well as the date on which you took it. You must notify GBCI within 10 days of your exam date that you have left comments within your exam.

Because of the need for test security, GBCI will not release exam questions or answers to candidates. GBCI does not respond to complaints or challenges received more than 10 days after the test date and does not respond to complaints sent to organizations other than GBCI.

GBCI does not modify exam scores under any conditions. In the event of a successful exam content appeal, you will be given the opportunity to retest; your score will not be changed. The only way to earn a LEED professional credential is to earn a 170 on the required exam(s).
