Blackboard Teaching vectors

So, you’re getting ready to take the Florida Teacher Certification Exams (FTCE)? Well, you have found the right place to get all of your registration questions answered!

We will go over how to register, the cost of the exams, and other important FTCE registration details. Next, we’ll go over what you need to bring on the day of the exam. Do you need an ID? If so, what kind? We’ll also look at FTCE test tips and whether or not you get a formula sheet or a calculator to use. Finally, we’ll look at what happens after you take the exam. We’ll answer questions about failing, retaking the exam, and how long you have to wait to retake a test.

First, let’s look at the registration process. Great news! Access to online registration is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

How do you register for an FTCE exam?

When registering for the FTCE you need to:

  1. Log in to your FTCE/FELE account (you can also create an account from this page).
  2. Once you are logged in, click Register for the FTCE/FELE and choose your test. You’ll be asked a few background questions and need to agree to the testing policies.
  3. Under Open Registrations, click Schedule to choose the date, time, and place of your exam.
  4. Review your registration and complete your payment by entering a debit or credit card.

How much does it cost to register for an FTCE exam?

The cost of the FTCE Professional Education (PEd) or Subject Area Exam (SAE) is $150. The FTCE General Knowledge (GK) exam is $130 if all four subtests are taken together. There is also a retake fee if you need to retake any subtest.

Are there any other FTCE registration details you should know?

If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment you can do that by logging into your FTCE/FELE account the same way you registered. Then, under Open Registrations click Reschedule or Cancel. You can reschedule or cancel your exam within 24 hours of your test appointment.

Next, let’s look at what to bring the day of the test and some test tips to help be better prepared for the FTCE.

Do you need an ID to take to an FTCE exam?

You must bring two valid forms of identification printed in English. You will also have your photo taken and palm scanned for identity verification purposes.

What are some test-day tips for an FTCE test?

Plan to arrive at the testing site 30 minutes before your scheduled testing appointment.

You will also complete an online tutorial on how to take a computer-based test.

Do you get a formula sheet or calculator on an FTCE exam?

On the General Knowledge exam, you do get an on-screen calculator, as well as a mathematics formula sheet to reference.

Elementary Education K-6 and Prekindergarten/Primary PK-3 exams provide a mathematics formula sheet.

Scientific calculators are available for the Mathematics 6-12 and Middle Grade Mathematics 5-9 exams.

A scientific calculator and physics formula sheet are provided for the Physics 6-12 exam.

For the Chemistry 6-12 exam, a scientific calculator, periodic table, and a chemistry reference sheet are available.

You will not be able to use your own calculator or formula sheet. Cell phones and other electronic devices are also prohibited.

To wrap up all you need to know about registering for an exam we’ll look at what happens if you fail the exam.

What happens if you fail an FTCE exam? Can you retake it?

The good news is that you can retake any test, subtest, or section that you score a NOT PASS on. There is a wait time of 31 days from the previous test date but there is no limit on how many times you can retake a test that has not been passed.

Hopefully, you have learned everything you need to know about registering for the Florida Teacher Certifications Exam!
