NCEES monitors this board and if they see you spamming they doc points. Just a warning.

At least @Will.I.Am @Chattaneer and I will go out in a blaze of glory!

If that's true, then the three of us have definitely failed and we might as well go home now.

Maybe if we spam enough, we'll have so many negative points that they will overflow into positive points.

All I'm saying is the more you spam, the more likely you are to pass...

But now that the spam reached its goal way ahead of time, we're in uncharted territory.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Today marks day 34 of The Suck. According to the available data, day 34 is the earliest that NCEES has ever made their initial release of results. This should give some context as to why we're getting hosed by the timing. (Last year, Thanksgiving was on Nov. 22nd. This makes a huge difference between taking the exam on Oct. 26th, versus Oct. 25th.) There's a decent chance that everything else is basically squared away, and that the control systems cut score meeting could, hypothetically, take place this weekend... But that never had a snowball's chance in Hades of happening, because of Turkey Day. 🦃🦃🦃 So, we wait and wonder when the control systems nerds will be able to get together as we enjoy our turkey and football.

The struggle is real, my friends.

Do you think that the control nerds will be in a better mood after Thanksgiving and that it will therefore lead to them releasing more favorable cut-scores? Maybe this is a good thing!

Controls nerds will statistically be grumpier than usual because their customers scheduled their work for the holiday.

If you took the control systems exam, it probably doesn't hurt... For the rest of us, it just Sucks for a while longer.

It is safe to say that results will come out in 2 weeks, more or less. Hang on there!

An inconsequential day in (most) people’s lives?

Possibly the day that @Chattaneer loses his marbles.
