Just saying...if you’re still not happy with what the board employees are doing, the board meetings are held online and noticed on the board’s web site. Feel free to call in and voice your concerns during public comment.  I can tell you for a fact that the actual Board wants to hear it. Simply making off-handed unflattering comments simply because you’re anxious to find out your results and you’re willing to bad mouth people for which you have no idea the effort they put in, is simply not becoming of a professional engineer. 

How do we go about commenting at their meetings? I would love the opportunity to provide constructive feedback to the board. I've had an absolutely horrendous experience with them thus far.

I actually believe that the scores are probably lower. We didn't have three extra months to study, that would have been the case if we were given a solid delayed date from the beginning, but we were jerked around and rescheduled several times and being demotivated for three months. On top of that, people are depressed and stressed, and don't forget that wearing a mask during the exam is an extra distraction that others before did not have. For all these reasons I would not be surprised if the cut off score was lower.

Hopefully we all pass, and none of us have to guess at the cutoff score

😎

P.S. I set up a gmail filter so that whenever I get an email from the board, it will forward as a text to my cell. No longer do I need to obsessively refresh my emails! Ya'll should do the same. I feel way less stressed out now.

Who does the results email come from?

But where is the excitement in that, it's almost like you want to be productive??

And as always, sometimes emails can be caught up in spam filters so remember to check for those.

When I took seismic in Feb and results came on March 12th, this what came in the To Line "BPELSG_Exam_Info, BPELS@DCA". The actual email address was aliased, so you may see that too.

What makes me so mad is why I am mad at myself for being surprised- from MY experience, almost every step of the entire process was a hassle with the Board. The employees are nice but the organization could use some lessons in treating their stakeholders just a little better by streamlining their processes and making their communications (website) more transparent and timely. (Last week, I had posted something similar, then deleted it). Not sure why i would need to go to their Board meetings to give this bit of feedback (and can provide specific concrete examples) but I will- after I pass, when ever I pass.

Did anyone who took the seismic test in July get their Prometric fee get refunded? I took the test, received my notice of completion, and then on August 1, I see that Prometric refunded my exam fee. Really freaking me out! Please Prometric, just keep my money!!

I was scheduled for the Surveying test which got cancelled. I had to reapply to take the test and  Prometrics charged me additional $65 to register. They refunded me $65 a few weeks ago since I paid twice but only scheduled to take it once.

I was scheduled to take it in March and my Prometric fees were refunded in April. I had to pay again when I rescheduled for the July date. If you’re concerned I would contact Prometric, the board probably wouldn’t have record of these transactions.

I think there’s a possibility that we may get it before Friday

What would lead you believe that? The updates said expect to release by Friday and then today they say they’re closing offices early through Wednesday. Did we all miss something?

They are closing the offices early, but they said remote working will continue as usual. Delay assumes that this has to be or is currently being done in the office. Which it could be, but then I think it would be hard to say the results were delayed due to the fact that people are working from home. Can't have it both ways. 

Think its best to let it go till Friday and be pleasantly surprised if it comes in before then. Anyone who wants to can attend one of their meetings and roast them immediately after.

This experience completely tracks with how awful the process has been so far.                                                      :poop2:

This part. I think it’s far more likely they get delayed into next week than seeing them before Friday at this point.
