    Oct 2018 Exam - Thoughts?

    On NCEES' website, they give you the passing rates and the number of people of first time test takers and repeat takers for each exam. You can then figure the overall passing rate for your exam.

    Advice from those who Passed Civil

    Don’t feel down. According to some of the Texas posts, this was an extremely hard exam! I think the cut score is around 46/47. That’s really low. I took structural last April, my 3rd attempt, and it was the hardest exam. You can do it. Just keep going at it. I highly recommended EET. Also, having done this 4x, there’s a bit of luck as well. It’s crazy how different each exam can be and you just never know what they’ll throw at you.

    Structural Depth April 2018

    I passed!!!! Fourth time and I finally passed. I’m overwhelmed with emotions and just revisiting my old posts. I attempted Structural 3x and failed each time. I finally switched to Construction this cycle and passed. I’m relieved. To those that didn’t pass, keep going. I had many dark lonely days where I wanted to give up . It’ll happen to you!

    The States Still Waiting After Day One

    Waiting for MN too. Last cycle was the first time they let NCEES release electronically on the second day. Hopefully they do it again. MN usually sends results by snail mail first then releases scores online.

    Grading/Cut Score Theories - GO!

    Last cycle was 51. However the past cycles have been consistent at around 56.

    October 2018

    I felt the same for the morning. I took civil construction. This was my fourth time doing civil but first time doing construction depth. This was one of the hardest morning sections. I figured it’d be harder because last cycle was very straight forward and as easy or easier than the ncees practice exam. I’m hoping for a miracle. The morning threw me off. Having done this four times, you can study all you want but ncees can still throw whatever at you and material you may never have thought of to look over.
  13. Are we thinking next week for results? When does someone create the Oct 2018 results topic?!

    Oct 2018 Exam - Thoughts?

    I hope to hear more from others. This is my 4th time taking the PE so I've become a veteran. There's always a "theme" for the breadth. The times that it is heavy in structures, I do well in and most people have difficulty. Unfortunately, this was heavy in areas I'm not comfortable with. I did waste a lot of time as well searching through. It was a weird breadth. It does go down as probably the second hardest breadth of I've done. Last cycle's was the easiest and most straight forward, i thought. It was the only one I ever felt was similar or easier than the NCEES practice exam. It showed in people's results too. All of us who failed last cycle's structural (i switch from structural to construction this time around) all had high scores in the morning around 30, but the afternoon was so difficult, we all go below 20 and failed. As for the Construction depth, i spent so much time looking things up. Some of the non calculation problems, you almost have to be in the industry as a construction manager to be able to know. I'm very uncomfortable at this point about how I did...
