How did you guys make out?

Recommended Posts

Outlaw,

I agree that many disciplines like Civil have a very high cut scores like 55-56/80 question correct = 70%. But you cannot base your assumptions on other branches of engineering. For Mechanical TF/MD/HVAC cut-scores are very low, my buddy who scored 56/80 was on 82% for MD. Also unlike all states Texas releases percentage passing to its candidates. I know my scores and percentage from last time and the reason why I am basing my assumption that 46/80 is passing for MD area.

Is this state specific cut scores or developed by NCEES?

^^^ Yeah, I should have caveated my statement, saying that the fail score thread gets input from all disciplines and I don't know which disciplines the ~55/80 come from. I wasn't arguing or trying to refute the score you listed. I have seen those as well. I was just stating that I saw a variety and I was mentally picturing if I could get 60 or more, I should be good.

^ LOL. I'll try my best. We need to start a group. Post PE Anonymous. Friday was test day. Saturday was a recovery day of rest and relaxation. And Sunday was like "wait, what's it like to have a life again?"

I feel like I am going through studying withdrawl. And i saved a ton of money studying! now that I have free time I can do things! I liked the April test. Study in the wintertime.

I agree. I also took my FE in April, last year. It's going to suck if I have to take it again and study in the summer. What people refer to as "summer" here in MI anyways. Definitely a drastic change from TX.

Usually in the back of the Buick.........

..... oh... you're talking about the exam.... nevermind. :oops:

The "group" has been started. It's called EngineerBoards.com - it's like a brotherhood (sisterhood) of all of us who have been in this situation

I did mechanica/HVAC. I feel like I passed, but definately didn't ace it. I had to guess on about 8 in the morning and 8 in the afternoon. Half of those were educated meaning I could elimated 1 or 2 answers. The other half was a blind guess. After coming home and checking I realized I guessed right on a least 3 that I guess blindly on so that helped me feel more confident. Still the ones I felt good about I could have made a dumb mistake, so I guess you never know.

Regarding passing scores from what I have heard a 47/80 was a passing score on a past exam. Of course it's curved every time, but from reading the responses here that sounds pretty close to the average.

I think I'd have gone insane by now without this board. It really helped during studying and now during the long wait.

This wait is really driving me crazy. I hope that I don't have to study in the summer too. My wife would kill me if I had to be locked in the basement for another three months. Especially since we are having a kid in June. ohh well. 1 week down 7 more to go!

I feel that we should have results (majority of states) before memorial weekend. Just a guess looking at past result dates.

You need to have someone check for you if it is not there by then. But only have them call and tell you if you pass. That would kill my vacation if I found that out in the middle.

YES. Although, it is a wedding, where I am a groomsmen, so I will be drinking heavily to begin with. My liver might think its worth it to get the "wedding" and "failed the PE" drunk out of the way in the same catastrophe.

Yeaaaaa. If you look at that link to the other thread I sent, the last few years have a "method" column. Thank you for pointing out that MO does it by email! I totally didn't see that. Now I will have to look while on vacation...
