Not feeling great after leaving FAR for the second time. First time around I got a 67. Today I felt okay on the first set of MCQ, but apparently I didnt do too well because it seemed like the second set of MCQ got easier. Sims were a questionable. I know I got the research question correct and I definitely got the majority of points possible on a couple of the other sims. However, the rest of them were tough and I'm hoping for partial credit.
Anybody feel like the second set of MCQ got easier and still able to pass this beast of an exam? Feeling exhausted, frustrated, and still questioning my answer choices this morning.July 31, 2020 at 3:49 pm #3062631CH89Participant
Honestly, I don't think I have ever noticed the second testlet of MCQs getting harder. There may have been one exam where it definitely felt like they were more difficult, but I they usually feel the same to me. I don't think too many people feel great after leaving exam, I know I don't normally feel too great. If I do feel good about it, it means I failed haha. You gave it your best, take a day or so to relax and enjoy some free time, and go from there.
Hoping to hear good news for you come time for your score release!August 1, 2020 at 8:52 am #3063123bmj2sParticipant
I wasn't feeling too great after leaving my exam yesterday either.
This was my first time sitting for it though. But I don't think it's easy to tell if the second testlet was harder or not. My second testlet had a lot more “definition” questions but I always kind of thought of it like maybe people spent so much time on calculations that they missed the “easy ones”. I know in BEC plenty of people were like I should've studied COSO more and I didn't have a problem with COSO on my exam.
These 3 weeks will be hard to not think about getting a passing score out of FAR constantly. Good luck to you!August 1, 2020 at 9:05 pm #3063687JFKGYParticipant
Just to make you feel better, I got the same question in the second set and third set before, and I don't know what the answer is. I think if you know half of the questions (or be able to get it down to 50/50), then you should pass with a 80.August 2, 2020 at 3:24 pm #3064095ClarkGuest
Thanks for the responses everyone! If I pass FAR, then I only have one left.
@bmj2s I did feel like my second testlet was more definition based as well, which is scary because I feel like those are technically easier, but maybe they're not?August 2, 2020 at 7:30 pm #3064296bmj2sParticipant
FAR is actually my last exam to pass, then I have my state ethics exam. But I agree, I'm not totally sure how to feel about it, I'm going to continue re-reading ninja notes and doing some mcqs every day until I find out what I got and go from there.
Sometimes the exam throws you curve balls and maybe I did well enough but I'm not sure how they determine what a “difficult” question is or not.
