Anyone else have an odd test morning? I scoped out the test venue the day before, and planned for the next morning. I arrived on test day without issue, and was 4th in line. Then it began...

I partially agree. I think you're right and the exams have mostly been graded at this point and they are sitting on them. Without any evidence other than knowing how some of our software works I belie

The way 2020 is going, I figure 82/80.

Without any evidence other than knowing how some of our software works I believe the issue is they use their website as an initial screening for exams. As soon as a result is posted you either passed and you're locked from taking a future exam or you failed and the exam registration is unlocked. Reprogramming that is a big and costly undertaking and tough to justify as the pandemic situation is a one off and not routine. 

I understand your argument that careers are affected. I have a promotion with a title and potential additional perks pending results of the exam. Even with that in mind 11 days is not that big of an obstacle. Being a multiple attempt test taker I can say the anxiety is worse not knowing the "not before" date. My condolences if your stakes are higher.

I've been browsing this board for nearly seven years. And this is one of the most wise, calm, and rationale things I've read on here.

It's bad enough that I have regular daytime anxiety about the exam results, why do I also have to have nightmares about results? 

It is a horrible part of the process. My worst one was acually a dream that I passed.  And then they immediately transferred me to the office in the land of Oz. It was a pretty complex and disturbing dream.

I'm typically on the bad news delivering end of things like this in my industry. "Sorry, we fought but couldn't get the DOT to change the spec to the more contractor friendly version we wanted... Sorry, we couldn't get the developer to update the database before pre-season training... Fixing your 300k mile work truck was much cheaper than buying you a new one, 8 tracks are coming back anyway." It's easy to get upset at your personal short-term impact but in this industry we need to be looking at the greater good. 

If they did reprogram the site for this situation and reprogrammed it back afterward the next round of exams might be $500 instead of $350. I'm at a point in my career where $150 doesn't phase me much anymore, but when I started that would've stung quite a bit. I'd rather just wait the 11 days and keep the cost down for the youngsters.

What if the results are sitting in your MyNCEES account, but you've just not gotten the email notification yet?

Then you log into your NCEES account and manically refresh?

Or, you can blindly spam until the email comes! It's fun, I promise!

I haven't had any nightmares, odd.  Of course I have been checking NCEES every morning for the last month, cause you never know, right?  Maybe that is the key to avoiding nightmares...  

You should just check at the end of everyday, but I highly doubt anybody have nerves of non elastic steel for that. Hell I checked it every 10 minutes.

I Just keep the "2020 results welcome to the suck" forum up because I imagine someone will say something there when results are posted  and then I don't feel like a nutcase spam refreshing NCEES.  Of course that will probably change in the next week after we hit the "no sooner than" date.

I have checked 3 times thus far.  Oh hey, I found out 3 years ago right about now that I passed!

You can feel it when it starts to happen.  It was so strange.
