Today I failed my RHCSA ex200v8 exam with following result:
Passing score:          210
Your score:             167
Result: NO PASS
Performance on exam objectives:
         Understand and use essential tools: 88%
         Operate running systems: 14%
         Configure local storage: 0%
         Create and configure file systems: 17%
         Deploy, configure and maintain systems: 29%
         Manage users and groups: 100%
         Manage security: 50%
The configuration of local storage score puzzles me most. I don't remember seeing in task on which particular disks new partitions should be made, so I just assumed to create partitions on any disk with enough free space, also I didn't reboot VMs when I was done with task, just mounted from fstab to make sure I didn't made mistakes. Maybe someone who passed can confirm that VMs restart was mandatory and that I misunderstood on which disks partitions should have been made.

    For me the reboots were not needed but that was 3 years ago. You may want to lab it out and see if it is needed.

    I did exam during EL6, at that time it was good to check after reboot whether services are persistant
    update :  you can check with RedHat for re-evaluation if you feel that the scores are not acceptable.
