So I started the AREs on June 5th and took my last exam just this past Sunday. I saw provisional PASS after all 6 exams, but I found out today that only PjM division turned out to be FAIL... Has anyone else received a FAIL after provisional pass? I got Level 2 (meaning passed) in 3 subtopics within PjM (so 3/5) but still failed... I spent about 10 days per division and had 3 weeks off after PDD due to a family issue.
So disappointed to see PjM fail after seeing pass... I think a provisional PASS should not be given out if it's not 100% accurate. It hurts more when you see the different result a day or two later. waiting for 60 days is going to not help my performance review at the firm either. anyways, I thought I'm going to be registered soon... guess not? unless anyone at NCARB can review my exam - just want to know if it really is FAIL...
FYI: Here is my exam timeline;
PA - passed 6/5
PPD - passed 6/25
PDD - passed 7/6
CE - passed 8/3
PjM - failed 8/11
PCM - passed 8/12
I used blackspectacles, Ballast 4.0 & 5.0, Brightwood 5.0, Kaplan 4.0, Hannahan lecture, designer hack questions, AHPP, MEEB, ASG, Ching books, FEMA, ADA/IBC pdfs... basically for each exam, I used ALL the references in NCARB guide pdf.
