    Hi, This is my first time posting here and I just took BEC yesterday and had an experience during the written communication section that I was hoping someone could help me with. So in an effort to not disclose any information ill keep this as vague as possible. In one of my written communications it asked me to explain a scenario. In my response I explained the scenario and used the exact terms that they asked me to define in my response however in my response one of the terms that they asked me to define was marked misspelled. The term I imagine did not exist in the dictionary but it is the exact same term that they used in the question and I could not answer their question without using this term over and over again. By the end of my written communication I had my entire paper in red but it was due to the same term being reused over and over. I know that we are not supposed to misspell words in the Written Communication but I had no choice. Is this something that they would take points off of? Has anyone else had this happen to them.

    Thanks guys and good luck. By the way the test was a beast



    I've never had it happen but I don't think they will take points away for it, if you spelled it the way they spelled it.



    I'd agree with Kricket. I also think spelling the word correctly would've been okay. I would guess that either way you will not lose points for this.

    I don't recall seeing any misspelled words on my BEC exam.

    You did your best, now it's on to the next one. 🙂 Best of luck to you.

    Yea it was a very commonly used word in practice so I was surprised that the software marked it misspelled. Either way yeah I'll just have to wait and find out. Worst comes to worst it'll end up being self graded.



    I took BEC today and had the exact same experience (I wonder if it was the same exact question as yours??) I also did it the way you did it and didn't really give it a second thought. I think it will be fine.
