When I didn't pass the CBX on my first try, my dad told me "its a disappointment, not a disgrace," and I'll never forget that, because its true even though its a little cliche.
And, when I finally DID pass the second time around -- I damn near had a heart attack of joy.
Failing the first time made me appreciate passing so much more.
I know it sucks, and it sounds like you really put in the effort. But, it sounds like you may have self studied, which is awesome, however I think you will have a much better idea of what and how to study now that you've actually taken the exam.
The first time, I knew I didn't pass the exam, but I knew the exam was PASSABLE, and it gave me an idea of how to study for the next time.
If you want to buy updated books, people should be selling them on the cheap now that results are out. When I passed, I gave all my books away.
Focus on February....its right around the corner.
This life is an unmitigated and repeated series of horrors...a constant example of misery and disappointment guaranteed to frustrate and beat down even the staunchest of spirit. It is a constant reminder that it is often useless to try, effort is not rewarded and preparation and hope are misguided attempts to force order on a chaotic existence of pain and disappointment.
It doesn't matter what you do, good results are a matter of chance and luck not desire and skill.
What is really pissing me off is people have mentioned they didn't even answer some questions....I answered everything, I was actually ready for the secured transaction question. I cant wait to see my score to actually see where I failed.
What? am I suppose to learn something from this shitshow and be happy and a better person because I failed....no. I'm not going to say the right thing or be grateful for just being in the show. None of us are happy for the person that wins the lottery... we are all envious that it wasn't us. I'm gonna pout for a while. I wouldn't have any room to bitch if I didn't take it seriously or didn't study...but I put in the work, I studied for months straight for nothing. Apparently 64-70% of New Mexico test takers are better than me (even skipping some questions)..so be it. I take no solace in the fact that this was New Mexico's lowest scores in years The fact remains I failed. Not the first time, I can honestly say I have failed at other things before but this one....hurts a little more.
Are you a minority? There is a conspiracy theory that the NCBE takes into account your NCBE profile such as Race/LSAT Score/Undergrad when grading your exam.
NEVERMIND MY QUESTION. Didn't scroll down and read your MBE score before posting the above. You can't pass with a 117 dude. Good news is there is hope for improvement. I scored a 117 in July of 2015 and then scored a 138 in Feb of 2016. You can do it.
