Texas provides a "scaled score" and it is not your raw score. For example, a 40/80 raw score is a 50%, but the "scaled score" on Texas board might show a 60%. NCEES past president has debunk a lot of the myths with the whole 70% is equal to a raw of 56/80 with this article here:

Top 8 sections are AM

The remaining are PM. 

If you count the number of questions, in top 8 and the remaining, they are 40 and 40.

 

This probably doesn't apply to all disciplines.  For example, my exam (ME Thermal Fluids) has 12 sections - 6 are "Principles" and the other 6 are "Applications". However, the 6 Principles sections only add up to 32 questions.

@Keekabo : Congratulations! How are you calculating the 69%? Just trying to understand this better. Also, when you say 71%, how many q's did you get correct. Thanks

@Ricson Thank you! Texas gives your final percentage - I didn't calculate anything and I have no idea how they calculate it. And if you pass, you do not receive the number you got correct. Based off of everything I've seen so far, it looks like the cutoff for the Electrical Power this year is at least 48/80. Maybe someone from Texas with a 69% will share their score.

What depth?

I took WRE at 1st attempt and Transportation for 2nd attempt. The review courses through SOPE.

Please also note that the "scaled score" is different per exam and exam cycle. See attached image

1st attempt was structural - 25 AM, 23 PM = 48 failure.
Most recent was construction - 22 AM, 27PM = 49 failure.

Guess just hit the books more, it's mostly luck of a draw sadly.  Only 5% of this exam is what I do day to day and what makes me a valuable engineer. Oh well.

I've been "around" for a while just lurking but I just received my 3rd failure notice :( you would think it wouldn't sting as bad but it hurts every time!  

42/80 Civil- Water Resources / Environmental

Considering EET on-demand for the next time

I'm so sorry ::hugs::

I failed enviro twice and used EET to brush up on water, since I was so weak in that subject. Can't recommend it enough. Nazrul is fantastic.

I highly recommend the EET WRE course....I passed on my second attempt and the the online course I took from EET made all the difference. I also scored in the mid 40s on my first attempt.

First Try

48/80 Mech HVAC & Refrigeration

I didnt take in TX, so i counted up the questions i did get right and came up with 48. Is this a raw score or a scaled score?

Anyone from TX who took this test what was your raw score and your TBPE score? Been seeing how a 48 amounted to a 68% scaled score in other disciplines , and just curious as to how close i was.

MDM Failed 43/80 

MDM failed with 45/80. I think the passing score is 49/80 which is 61.25%.

Damn.  Sorry to hear that.  If you don't mind me asking, did you take a review course?

Would you please post the diagnostics sheet?  Thank you

Civil / Geotech here. Failed in April 2018 with a 53/80 after taking School of PE. This second time around, I used School of PE for the breadth/morning review and EET in the Geotech Depth afternoon. Highly recommend both courses (I know it’s $), along with the Geotechnical Engineer Handbook. Keep your head up, take a break until Mid-January and then start gearing up again! You will get there!

Civil-Structural

AM - 31

PM - 16

Overall 47/80

Took School of PE and felt very confident in the AM. Plan to retake for April 2019, but add EET to prepare for the PM.

Same deal as above! Took School of PE, morning went better. PM did not go well.

Anyone with 49/80 for Civil-Structural? How close was it?
