Fellow candidates, Yesterday, 1/21/2023, i took an in-person PJM exam. I answered my 61 mc questions, took my break, then returned to finish. After searching the references to answer the first case study question, I went to the next question and could not tab through any of the reference materials: I could not look through any of the multiple references that NCARB provides to answer the case study. I notified the proctor, they reset my system, i went back in but still could not review any other references. I promptly notified the proctor again and they then called NCARB for intervention. My testing center rep WAS TOLD THAT NCARB IS AWARE OF THIS ISSUE IN THE CASE STUDY AND THAT THEY ARE WORKING TO CORRECT IT. The options given to me were to continue and finish the exam UNABLE to review the references OR reschedule the test. I dare say that most if not all of you would be pissed off at this. NCARB is aware that this is an issue yet they choose to not make candidates postpone their scheduled exams until the issue is corrected. To put this into perspective, I was 82% done with the exam, felt confident that i performed well to that point, then to have the rug pulled from beneath me because NCARB chose to hide the fact that the test might or might not work well enough to complete it. What a crock! Missing work to take this test, losing time that i cannot get back, and now having to reschedule to some later date because they are not ethical in their administration of the exams. Oh the irony of ethics in practice. We should all DEMAND more from NCARB. The BBB WILL hear from me on this as well as all higher ups at NCARB. The toll these exams take on us is no joke. NCARB needs to get their act together and be forthright with us candidates when things don’t work right. They must want your rolling clock to expire son they can get more money instead of granting you extensions due to their system issues. PLEASE, CONTACT THEM AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.
