    Good luck! It's not an easy exam - you have to know your stuff considering the amount of questions and length of time.

    Failed mine by 15 points (6ish questions) - hope you do well!

    How did you work out that it's 6ish questions?

    The scaled scoring system that is used runs from 100-500, and the passing score of 300 has no direct relationship with a number of questions right and wrong.

    That's where the ish comes into play. You are right there is no direct correlation, i got a 275 on my exam (misstyped earlier), roughly speaking with 500 divided by the number of questions gives you the percent per question. Is it perfect no, are certain questions weighted more, yes. It was a method to make myself feel a bit better about not passing - thanks for bringing me back down to earth though...

    Well the good news is that i Passed the Exam..

    feelings about the exam.. mixed, the Questions with images i couldn't even make out the images as the pixels were so bad..
    a lot of catch ya type questions.. i did end up flagging the multiple-choice questions so i could come back to them and give myself time and breathing space to read over them carefully, i did knock off the single choice type questions first.

    Certainly not my intention. You're certainly close enough to a pass, with lessons learned from your first attempt you'll give it a good go next time I'm sure...
