After The Test
At the end of the exam, the computer calculates and displays your exam score, advising you whether you passed or failed. You will then be escorted out of the test room and presented with a printout of that screen, giving your raw score and percentage correct broken down by section. To the printed results will be affixed a raised seal. If, when you filled in your U10, you provided a firm name, your employer will be notified of the result.

Passing the Series 3 does not automatically allow an individual to act as a registered commodity broker. You must first file an online registration application with the National Futures Association (NFA), then submit the appropriate fee and fingerprint cards.
