I took FAR 4 times!!! The first time was in 2011. I was so disappointed, I took a step back and re-evaluated what I really wanted. The second and third times were in the fourth testing window of 2014 and the first window of 2015. My score was steadily increasing, but still not close enough to pass. 50, 61, and 70. I was heart broken over the 70, because I felt I tried so hard. But on 5/5/15, I finally saw that I had passed FAR! I am so freaking happy. Now time to buckle down and pass the rest, before FAR expires! I don't EVER want to take FAR again!!!
Good for you for sticking it out all this time. Those close fails really are heart breaking. My first attempt at FAR I got a 73. I beat myself up a little bit for that but then just said to myself “Hey, you got this close so you can def. do this”.
