  1. Will The American Board of Pharmacy accept my best scores?
    Please is there anyway we can convince the American board of pharmacy to accept my best scores.
    I have been struggling with Toefl since November2019 just for 1 or 2 points short each time. Also, my FPGEE exam result will be expired soon.
    Thanks a lot.
