Since 50/80 = 62.5%, and they say your scaled score is 69, then the curve is about 6.5 points. By my reckoning, you missed passing by one question.

I know the feeling, as the same thing happened to me years ago when I took my master electrician exam for the first time. But I nailed it the second time, so it all worked out in the end.

I haven't heard yet how I did on the October PE (we have snail-mail notification in my state), but I halfway expect to be taking the exam again in April. No big deal. All we can do is keep plugging away until we win.

52/80...Ohio Civil Construction...fail

I don't see a weighted percentage. I had a 0 out of 6 in one area in the afternoon, which came as a total shock to me. I bet with a few of those back, I would have passed.

I failed with 53/80 Civil Transportation.

Breakdown as follows:
Construction --------------------------- 6/8
Geotechnical --------------------------- 2/8
Structural -------------------------------- 6/8
Transportation -------------------------- 5/8
Water Resources & Environmental - 4/8
Traffic Analysis ------------------------- 8/9
Geometric Design ---------------------- 9/12
Transportation Planning -------------- 1/3
Traffic Safety ---------------------------- 4/6
Other Topics ---------------------------- 8/10

By looking at the diagnostics, I would probably need 56+ out of 80 (70%+) to pass the exam...

I'll assume this is based off of my comment on another thread about someone failing with 55/80, so here's some good news! I had misread someone else's post; they didn't actually fail with a 55, so no worries! I have yet to actually see anyone on here who failed at 55/80.

I can't believe 54/80 is a fail for Transpo. I'm used to seeing 51,52 as the highest fail score. Yikes.

54/80 is the highest fail score I've seen since joining this board.

Anyway, I feel for those getting 53 and 54, knowing how close you were.

BTW, each test is weighted differently, meaning a 54 may be a fail on one test/discipline, but may be a passing score on others.

Sorry you didn't pass, that's not a bad grade I think back in April that was a passing grade..

What did your diagnostics look like?

Can anyone confirm the note above that the different civil disciplines have different cut scores, I thought civil as a whole only had one passing score regardless of afternoon section. Has anyone gotten results on the civil structural exam?

I wonder if their is a fall and spring trend for cut scores or just coincidence. I always thought it was probably harder to the pass the FE in the fall than in the spring because you have more first timers in the Spring and in the fall you tend to have people who failed and really want to pass. Maybe my theory is wrong.

Civil/Transpo...fail...no diagnostic yet. Does anyone know if the rules changed in FL to where you can no longer take the PE out of state, then transfer it over? This will be my third attempt, and FBPE makes you take classes if failed the PE more than three times. a lot of people i know go to Alabama to take it on their third try, then transfer it. Any input is appreciated.
