The Architect Registration Examination Report

The Architect Registration Examination Report

The Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®) is a multi-division exam used to assess the candidate’s knowledge and skills regarding the practice of architecture. Developed by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), the exam is accepted by all U.S. jurisdictions and is a key step on the path to earning a license.

NCARB is transitioning from ARE 4.0 to ARE 5.0: moving from seven divisions to six and arranging the material within the divisions around the progression of a typical architectural project rather than specific content areas. ARE 5.0 has been offered since November 1, 2016, and ARE 4.0 will continue to be offered until June 30, 2018.
