Second Attempt, Thoughts on Third
So I took the exam this past June and failed just by a small amount; my confidence interval showed me going either above or further below MPS. I’m sitting for the second time and, though it could just be nerves, barely feel in a better than the last time (which I walked out feeling I could have passed - sad mistake). I’m trying not to get ahead of myself and assume I’m going to pass, as I really do not feel all that confident I am doing much better than before. I feel as though I understand concepts and calculations better, though my scores have just marginally improved (around 70-75 range, depending on the day which is where I was last time).
Given all this: what are opinions on sitting for the exam a third time? Is this indication that the designation is not for me? I love the subject matter and content being studied; however, if I can’t even get through Level 1 it makes me thing I would not be cut out for an applicable career. Thoughts?
