I received my scores, and they just show what a lottery it is... I ran out of time on Essay #2 since I did Essay 3 and Essay 1 first.
If the first grader gave me a 70 instead of a 60 on the First Read for PTA, I would have passed!!!
They did give it to me on second read, but the score was averaged.
Noticed how I performed worse than others on Contracts but still passed the MBEs.
What a shame... I could have been celebrating a win of this lottery now. Every exam is so different, and how well you perform now seems to have nothing to do with the next 'game' of essays and PTs and MBEs.
Crushed. Totally crushed.
I also feel like the July test is a suicide - all the recent graduates are going in for the kill.
And I am working full-time now. What should I do - retake, or wait it out until next winter?

This nightmare is not over yet....
What a lottery.... I can tell by the scores, especially by the discrepancies in the first read and the second reads!!!!!!!!! A higher score on Essay 6 and on PTA ON THE FIRST READ would have passed me, which means that YOUR DESTINY DEPENDS ON THE MOOD OF THE GRADER, REALLY!!!!!! HOW IS THAT FAIR? There's a huge difference between a 60 and a 70 score on a PT!!!! For the same work written!
