So what possible reason could a VE team have for not letting a candidate know his/her score ? They should all do that, always.
I guess it's possible they would have told me if I'd asked. I was unfamiliar with what the score-disclosure rules might be when I took the test, so I assumed that the non-disclosure at my test site was normal. Personally I would have found it useful to know my score. I took the Tech and Gen in one sitting, and they encouraged me to then try the Extra. But I hadn't studied for the Extra at all, so it would have been a "guessing game" and I'm someone who likes to study properly, not just memorize answers.
I do remember that they gave me a form stating that I'd passed, but it didn't have my score on it. To me it would make sense if disclosing the score, in writing, were always required and why not on that form? That's what happened when I took the British test decades ago, the score was clearly stated on the "pass certificate" that I received in the mail (in those days they were essay questions, including drawing simple circuit diagrams, and you had to wait several weeks while the papers were graded).
Next time, I'll go to a different test site in hopes that they might have a different policy on the scores. There are several choices in my area. I'm going for my Extra soon.
