Why I failed: I didn't notice that the North arrow was NOT facing 'upwards,' finally noticed it, had to change all my answers in the case study, and by that point had lost 90min to 1 case study. I never got it back.
What I'm glad I failed: I'm glad I took the test and saw what was on there. I studied hard for 6 weeks and had decent knowledge. I could have studied 6 more and kept doing the wrong thing.
So I think a fail was the next best thing: I know where I went wrong, know how to recalibrate, and go from there.
I harp on this in my other posts ... these are NOT tests, they are proving minimum competency to protect life, safety, welfare. So I'm glad I failed. I WANT to meet the minimum. And now I'm better equipped to do so.
