Hi all I just failed pcm for the fifth time since 2019 looking at my score reports on this test , I have gotten worse since I have taken the test the first time and I feel like the information was way different than anything I study, do the questions get more obscure with the amount of times you take the test? I feel like if I had the same questions I did the first time I could pass but this is not the case and I have passed every section but at different times. I am feeling very down and disappointed as if I should stop testing. I have longed to be a architect since college and have always struggled on these exams. I have read that most exams show white males are the ones to most succeed on these exams and one person has taken pa 15 times and still failed, I have only taken it twice but god that’s awful. I was laid off last year in covid and have been taking these exams since then hoping to pass and get a job with the idea of being licensed and not getting laid off ever again. I even moved to my hometown to save money so I could focus on these exams and not working. Nevertheless I have taken all of the exams twice and passed only pJm and ppd I have pdd in two weeks. I am becoming disheartened and wondering if I am just chasing a lost dream. I don’t come from a wealthy family or from a family of architects, I grew up poor and barely knew what a architect was when I graduated high school. Falling in love with the profession in college and then in the job field I never stop dreaming but maybe. I should now. Looking for any advice on tips or just something to help the down and out. Wishing everyone luck on theses exams!!
