    Don't forget after you come up with a design solution, you get hear about how it is over designed and that they have been doing it another way for years.

    Oh i realize the chances are slim, but if for some reason i were to fail i would not retest till next spring so i would have plenty of time to at least try. Similar to dating the worst they can say is no. I am encouraging another engineer in the office getting ready to fill out his application to specifically state they have never worked on nor will work on designated structure as defined by Georgia rule ..blah.. and see what happens with that.

    April 2018 SE Exam Results

    I am hopeful that this cut score meeting will be a positive for us, it is the first cut score meetings since the test was introduced and when the SE is compared to the PE the pass rates, they are significantly lower. And when you review other threads with scores of 30/40 A/A/A/UA as a failing exam, i am sorry that is too strict in my opinion, by their own definition the test is to prove minimum understanding not full understanding. between bridges and buildings we probably have a 35ish % pass rate while all other PE average around 60%, while our test should be considered harder, it is more in depth and two days, i dont think the passing percentage should be half, i don't find it a coincidence that ALL the PE test have similar pass rates, i would imagine that is by design. So hopefully that was discussed at the meeting and the cut score was lowered and will be implemented on our tests.

    Look up Georgia Rule 180-2-.04 Georgia adopted the definition of a structural engineer as one who designs building defined as designated structures, which are risk category III or IV, buildings overs 100,000sqft with accessible areas at over 45ft above grade level, building with height to width ratio or 7 or greater, or buildings that are analyzed using non-linear time history analysis. If you do not work on buildings by these definitions the state of Georgia defines you as a civil engineer who engages in the design of structural elements which is supposed to be allowed to take the 8hr PE civil breadth structural depth exam. Although i feel confident with my performance on the exam if i do not pass i may petition with the state on being allowed the 8hr test because by their adopted rules published on the state website i am not required to take the 16hour SE exam. However, the law is interpreted by the board so it may not mean much.
