  1. Apparently it's time consuming for the MN board to upload results for the 10 of us who took it... But maybe that's because 9 of those results will include a diagnostic 🤣. Which likely includes my results.
  2. Was it a concrete problem that you guys/gals had an issue with? If it was I'll probably still bring it up to NCEES even though it's well past the 10 day time limit they gave me. If it was a different material then I'll just ignore it and assume I was doing something wrong on the problem I'm referring to. I'm assuming that's not too much information to divulge on this forum but I'm sure someone will let me know if I've said too much. 😕
  3. The guy who emailed me just said 10 days, so I'm assuming he meant calendar days.
  4. A little off topic, but did anyone else know that if you want to send a comment to NCEES about an exam problem you have to do so within 10 days of the exam? I'm sure that's written somewhere on the website or in the fine print of the exam and I just never bothered to read it. I contacted NCEES about a concrete problem on the lateral AM exam because I thought it should be simple and it was bugging the crap out of me that I couldn't come up with one of the answers, and they told me my 10 days to submit a comment about an exam question was up. So fair warning to all taking the exam in the future, if you have a question or comment about the exam make sure you contact them within 10 days.
  5. I took both days in MN and got past the vertical but not lateral, which was what I expected, 25/40 and IR on all four afternoon questions. A little worse in the morning than I expected but not by much. I was pretty confident on the wood/masonry and steel questions in the afternoon, I figured I would get A on those two and IR on the other two, so I'm curious about how much we need to get wrong in the afternoon to go from A to IR? I'm guessing you need to do every step right with just minor math errors in order to get an Acceptable score, but do you think they actually deduct for not referencing equations, factors and load combinations in the code? I would think if you're showing the right calculations they wouldn't require referencing every single equation and factor, but maybe that's what pushed me to IR on those two problems. I am confident with wind design on a wood/masonry structure as I do that a lot at my job, and I also thought I did well on the steel problem because I focused my seismic studying on steel and was hoping for some luck on the concrete portion, so I can't think of anything other than math errors and not referencing equations that I could have done wrong on those two, but I was two months ago so I could be misremembering. It sure would be nice to be able to look through our graded exams one time after we get results so we could see our mistakes and not make the same one's next time, I'd pay $100 to be able to do that because it might save me the $500+ it would cost to take it a third time. You'd think NCEES would see the 19% pass rate for lateral buildings repeat takers and see a correlation between that and not having an opportunity to see what we did wrong, but what do I know.
  6. Illinois makes sense, they do everything backwards, but Idk what Minnesota's excuse is.
  7. Anyone in Minnesota get results yet? Because I have not, but there were only 11 of us.
