I've heard a lot of talk about refreshing email. Are you all not about that push notification life?

Push notification is delayed by hours sometimes. Wondering if it is just my old iphone5.

Push notifications only check like once every 5 mins right? Unacceptably long wait when you're being neurotic about it.

This happened last year. I got mine last year on October 27th (Thursday) at 11:44pm, when we were expecting it around midnight. Others got theirs later. I'm not sure if the order is sent out as per pass/not pass score, name, or ID/seat number.

Thanks Toubro for posting that - I was just about to post the difference between a 'not passing' and a passing email. You'll know by the size of the attachment that you've passed (I didn't pass last year - mine was about 50 kb) and the passing attachment is just that page.

Agreed I too felt that the mbe was harder than essay.

Felt like I missed a lot of issues on the essays. Hopefully didn't miss too many on the MBE

If I got two sentences in for the second MPT (albeit think I owned the first one), only 2 sentences for one of the essays, sufficiently bombed another essay, and expect a 150 scaled MBE, do I have the slightest chance, or should I stop wondering if I passed and start studying for February?

I'll be honest: Only getting two sentences in for the second MPT is going to hurt you a bit. Each MPT is worth 10% of your overall score (think of it as two essays). It generally won't kill you to bomb one essay, but bombing two essays plus the second MPT isn't a good sign. Having said that, a 150 scaled MBE is a very good score, which may help you get over the hump. However, you're going to need that first MPT and the remaining 4 essays to be well above average in order to have a legitimate shot at passing. Good luck.

What are you basing that off of? Also, do you know if not putting something at all for an essay results in a zero, or would you just get whatever the minimum scaled score is and still get some points towards the 266?

I'm basing that off of previous exams I've taken in different jurisdictions. I will try to find you some links to articles that will also support my statement. As to your second question, I am not sure. Sorry,

That would be quite cruel. Like, I am probably on the verge of an ulcer...my body can't take this.
