Cissp test passed.... I think

Just finished the exam and got

"congratulations you have provisonally passed"

Really happy that I have passed, is it normal to say provisionally though or is it random?

I have 5 years web security experience and have been studying on and off for this qualification for 2 years, but the past 3 weeks.

I put about a 100 hours of study in using:

Shon Harris 2013 edition plus exam questions
Sybex 7th edition official study guide + official questions
Kelly's cybrary videos

Did about about 3000 test questions, questions only attempted once and averaged 80%. ( range was 75 - 90% on online tests, 80 - 100% end of chapter tests)

Just wanted to thank people who have posted on this forum regarding study advice.
(I was viewing it anonymous a lot)

I think out of all the study materials the cybrary videos were the most helpful and easy to take in. Really good to use a week before the exam.

The test was difficult and I can't really add anymore than what already has been said by other people.

Now I will wait for my official confirmation from itc2, how long does it usually take?

    they are auditing, or doing additional review of your exam. Normal is just a "Congratulations You Passed" not "Provisionally Passed"

    a co-worker recently passed and his said 'provisionally' and a few weeks later had his card and cert. mine said the same thing. i got an email the next day (friday) saying i passed and a couple of days later (monday) telling me to submit my endorsement stuff. so my thought was they all said 'provisionally'?

    I passed the CCSP (cloud) yesterday and got the "provisionally passed" as well. I wonder if everyone is getting that these days? Has anyone recently passed an ISC2 exam and not gotten that?

    It means you passed the test but have to complete the additional steps/credentialing process to officially earn the CISSP title. Congrats!

    I just got the email from ISC2 already regarding the next step. So I think it's saying provisionally passed! :D
    This forum really helped me a lot in preparing for the test.
