I need some help!
I have now taken the PA exam 3 times and each one progressively better to the point where on the last exam I only missed one section (I understand its cumulative for the overall exam and not section by section) but, with the result of my recent exam showing I only had one blue area and how confident I felt with the questions on the exam it looks like I didn't study or prepare for this exam at all. I'm just curious as to why and how going from a near pass to an absolute fail is possible.
Things to Note: This is my Last Exam, I have passed all previous exams on my first attempt with the exception of PcM due to me not understanding the new Break Policy. Most advice is take keep moving take the next exam which was fine. I don't know why PA is my Achilles heel but it is. I note the first attempt not prepared, took a break knocked out PPD & PDD took it again Almost made it according to score card. Fine study for another 2-3 months (Due to the 60 Day wait time). Re-read ballast, Skim the the Suggested readings, Amber Books (Exam get a 70 - then do all 95 question in the Walking the ARE), Black Spectacles Exams (70+ - this is using them as quick quizzes). During Exam made sure to leave time to review ALL marked question which was almost 40 of them (I mark anything I want to double check or has Multiple selection options).
I'm frustrated and heading into Test Attempt #4 (60ish day from now), but still unsure how I could go from almost there to not even close. I'm venting and I know there won't be a magic answer, but just had to get it out there.
Frazzled but still moving forward!
