AuthorTopic: The most amount of tries?
@2017-12-21 19:02:26
Hello everyone,

For those that failed level I before, How many tries did it take you to pass level I and still persisted in getting your charter?

This will be my second attempt in June but i personally know 2 people that will be going for their third attempts in June. One of them failed band 10 twice.

Failures are categorized into 10 bands (deciles). The first band means you're in the first decile, or the bottom 10% of all failures. Band 10 means your in the 10th decile (90th pertcentile meaning 90% of fialures scored below you), or in the top 10% of all failures...or really close to a pass.

I failed in June 16, but passed in Dec.

Failing happens, and it really depends on you (your goals, interests, etc...) to decide whether you want to take it again or not, and how bad you want it.

I passed! I did not get a chance to tell you before the exam - but your site was excellent. I will definitely take it next year for Level II.
