Mechanical Failing Scores

Recommended Posts

I prepped my butt off for this test....and I think it's very difficult to leave this test feeling like a boss. I would say 85% of the people taking the test are praying that they pass.

It's different than your exams previously taken in college. Those college exams you scored 80 to 90 on. For the PE, you're scoring approximately in the 70 +-3 range. On top of that....it's not scored on getting 70% of the questions right but rather their own scale.

I'm with you @TxMechEng!  Since June, I prepped for about 2 hrs during my lunch break, and another hour at home after the kids went to bed.  Took a vacation this summer with the family and studied every evening at the pool while the kids swam.  People including my wife were looking at me like I was crazy but I didn't care - I really want those initials after my name.  Hate to say it, but I'm spending a small fortunate of my own money for those prestigious two letters.

I really hear you man, what you said brought tears to my eyes, not because I am so emotional but because I really studied hard for that exam, every single night after my daughter went to bed until 11 or 12 at night then I had to get up 6:30 AM to go to work and so on until October 28 at 5:30 when I stopped studying to get ready to go to the exam site, and I really don't know if I will fail , does that mean I am a stupid ?, but anyway if I will fail I will register again and will go be to study until I will get those two letter after my name (struggle is real)

How is this so difficult to understand. 

First exam 67%   43 right

Second Exam 69% 44 right

Again, this is assuming each question is weighed the same.

Missed by 1?! Aw man.

Just think, if you were a wounded veteran and took the exam in Georgia, you would now be a Professional Engineer. (They get a boost!)
