Extremely unlikely.
I don't know if late seroconverters experience ARS at all. Or if ARS occurs in the normal timeframe and actual antibody production up to a detectable limit later.

ARS typical occurs between 2-4 weeks. Since a 3 month test is conclusive I can't see how it could occur as late a 6 months unless possibly you have taken PEP.
