A guy brought a ...... to the exam!

Recommended Posts

Note that if you do, they should be individual earplugs (not connected with a string, ect.) The proctors will instruct you to cut it off.

I wonder why that would be?

I used earplugs when I took the exam. I think I brought around 5 pairs. Redundancy FTW!

If I had to guess, I would say to make sure it's not some kind of wire for a recording/transmitting device. It's been known to happen - http://cdn3.ncees.co/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Licensure_Exchange_August_2009.pdf

No wonder ncees is so paranoid!

I hate to admit it but I was kind of impressed that she was able to pass the FE exam while pulling a crazy stunt like that.

Article said she attempted the FE - doesn't mean she passed. Puerto Rico may be one of those crazy places that lets you take FE and PE at same time and/or out of order. I've heard of other states doing that.......

Read closer. She was caught during the Civil PE exam. They suspect she used the same devices for the FE one year earlier. I agree pretty genious!

Yeah, I was commenting on ptatohed's comment thinking he was assuming she passed the FE because she was taking the PE. My point was that it appears she was taking the PE even though it appears she hadn't passed the FE since the article said she attempted the FE.

If you figure out how to build a transceiver in a pair of earplugs with a string between them, I think you deserve a PE.

I think NSA might have some of those gadgets or maybe this dude lol

Nobody thought of bringing ear plugs besides me?

I brought a butt plug to the exam. No need to waste valuable time on bathroom breaks.

A butt plug is overkill. Just a wear a diaper like I did.

You don't know Fudgey, or you would never suggest such a pedestrian solution.

Maybe Fudgey had both - just in case...

A couple folks brought their references in on bell carts from the attached hotel. Can't imagine the front desk was happy about missing so many bell carts.

Diapers can chafe if you have sensitive skin.

You all missed this? ^^^

I know I had to read it twice...

It may be because the stamp has stayed in the drawer this week though...
