Yup. Felt like it was the most difficult exam for me. The studying was a breeze. Actual exam I thought I got a 60 or less on. Ended up fine

I felt like i failed them all. Ended up passing them all first try. Relax, there is nothing you can do now so don’t worry about it

The multiple choice was really hard and then really easy so I thought I had failed. Passed low 80s

I passed all 4 on the first shot. The only one I felt good about when leaving was Audit. I’m sure you did fine!

I thought my BEC exam was super hard and I felt like I guessed on pretty much all the multiple choice questions!! But I ended up passing with a 78. But I did feel pretty decent on the written part. Hope you did fine. Good luck!!

I felt like it was easy and got a 76.

The better you do the harder the questions are so it’s not uncommon to think you failed when you actually did pretty well.

Passed all on the first and thought I failed them. I’m sure you did fine

Yes. It felt like the hardest test but ended up being my highest score. It seems to have a crazy “curve” aka weighted questions that allow you to get less right and still pass

The exam curves itself. After each module if you did well, they ask harder questions.

Left multiple sims blank. Got a 78

Our school instituted a district wide 50% floor/grading policy. If you give a student an assignment and they do nothing, not even write their name, or turn in a blank sheet of paper, they get a 50%. If they score less than 50% on a quiz or test, we have to mark it up to a 50%. This is the new norm and is causing kids to not do work, or just the bare minimum. It has taken the joy out of teaching and has taken away the accountability of students. Anyone else facing this? What do you do?

Hi Ladies - Trying to decide when to officially go on leave. I was thinking two weeks before I’m due but everyone keeps telling me to work up until the due date to have more time at the end with the baby. I’m honestly just tired of working and barely get any sleep at this point. Wouldn’t mind having some me time (I have 5 months leave) but also realize the baby could come early. Let me know your thoughts!
