    Emailed. Usually three weeks from your test date.

    Does it just say whether you passed or failed, or does it show the actual entire score report, percentage, and a breakdown?

    It says it all. When you first open up the .pdf you'll find out if you passed or fail, and once you scroll down a bit you'll find your 3 digit score followed by your 2 digit score, which is derived from your 3 digit, so don't take your 2 digit score as a percentage... if you want to know at what percentile you scored at... just simply find what your z score is and that should let you know where you stand. One page two of the document you will find your performance profile report, similar to the NBMEs depicting what your performance was on each topic.

    Hope that answers your q's.
