4th PPD Fail, over a span of two years.
I allowed 2.5 hours for the Case study hoping to use 1.5 hr and the remaining hour to review my MC questions. There was a serious computer lag of about 15-17 seconds to open each drawing, and when one goes back - it shifts to Scenario, then you have to reload. On top of that, there were 2 computer crashes on one, I got shifted to another that also lost connection with the clock counting down. With 20 minutes remaining for MC questions review, it only allowed question by question rather than the marked ones only, again losing time. Prometric noted the problems and NCARB gave a seat credit - but most importantly I lost 1 chance of my retake and they are dwindling down.
I wanted to avoid the proctoring exam. This time I did worse than ever before, (most of them in level 3) even worse than the first time when I had barely studied for a couple of weeks, and most of my score was in level 2. The more I retake the worse it gets. aarggh!!!
Anyway taking a break and picking myself up, and have to change my strategy.
Advice welcome. TIA.
