CA Results

Recommended Posts

Guys and Gals!!!

It seems like it's going to be a long long wait until California decides to declare the results. So just to pass time, lets share our experiences and try to make the wait seem shorter..

I passed last year on the fall exam. To add insult to injury, the board met on the 15th or 16th of January. Monday was a holiday so that delayed the computer update and the mail! As I recall the letter came in the Tuesday mail (I live in Nebraska) and the database was updated early Wednesday morning. I'm guessing the letter will get there before the database is updated.

Hang in there.

My cubemate wrote the April 09 exam and it seemed like he got his results in no time, which we attributed to the fact that we were sooooooooooo busy we didn't have time to think of anything.. But its really killing me with all the wait..

It's terrible that they wait 120 days to meet to decide what the cut score will be. Why not meet in the last week of December? The entire state of California is a big joke.

Yes, it's been pretty dragging.

However, do I really want to spoil my holidays? lol..I guess it could be the other way around as well.

The board seriously needs to think of ways to make the process more efficient.

This is only a process time in the life and we will have a good news in the end of Jan. 2010.

Don't worry...just plan what you are going to do because a lot of people do not take the PE exam and they live happy than us..... You never know that maybe tomorrow you will win the lotto and forget about the PE. Let's said in this way, what PE license will bring to you? a million, 2 minllions? no...the answer might be less than 200K in life time.

Happy Holiday

yup. Board meeting on 26th Jan, so expect the results to be mailed around 28th-29th. Anyways I e-mailed NCEES and the Exam administrator told that the pass rates will be posted on NCEES website either tomorrow or next week (my bet on next week). Atleast that will give an idea about the first-day passing percentages..

definitely a long wait, but hopefully the ending will be sweet..

yes, that happens. I know quite a number of people who passed Seismic or Surverying or Seismic and Surverying and failed the National exam.

Really? That's great news. I wonder what the passing rate is for the other states.

contacted for what, especially when u know its not going to be futile at least for another 4-5 weeks.. during the exam, the proctors said "the exam results will be sent to you within 13 weeks". u have to wonder that Cali board people do make use of every second of those 13 weeks LOL.

I took Structural for my afternoon exam. It was tough. I don't know where you got the idea that Structural was easy. The only way by which you could make a sound comparison is if you took both tests. But none of us did...

it depends on lot of things.. geotech is not my profession.. i took it since lot of people told it's relatively easy way out.. and since i had to carry stuff from MD to CA, i didn't want to carry all the codes.. some of my friends told me it was tough, some told it was easy.. i looked at the paper for 2-3 minutes and whatever i saw (9 problems) they were relatively easy (especially compared to the geotech ones, where i had no clue).. anyways i know for sure that i wud have done a lot better at the structures depth.. i know i did pretty good in morning, so am hoping that it will carry me through..

Well, you should have taken Structural then if you thought it was easy and you know for sure you would have done a lot better at the structures depth. Nonetheless, I wish you all the best.

By the way, what's the point of taking a CA exam when you're in MD? Are you planning on moving to CA?

Oh...Four years? I know how that feels. That's what happened to me in California as I attended a foreign university. I almost didn't want to take it anymore. But I finally did and I am patiently waiting for the result.

I am wondering what is so special about CALI Board of PE that result release is almost 4-6 after everyone gets their. Well nothing can be done so lets just chill and party with whoever passed around you. :dancingnaughty:
