AuthorTopic: The Myth About Ethics

Just to put the rumor to rest, I passed level I, however, I managed to simulateously bomb the ethics portion of the exam. So.....I guess the rumor that you have to pass ethics to pass the exam isn't necessarily true. Any thoughts???

...Same thing, passed the test, bombed ethics. It's a tiebreaker for those on the 'bubble' is what I hear but who really knows?!

I was told that ethics is used to determine pass or fail for borderline exams only.

When you say "bomb", do you mean below 50 or between 51 and 70?
@2014-02-15 11:03:17
I mean like.....below 50%.....I was kind of surprised I did that bad...but...I guess it didn't end up mattering.

To put the rumor to end once and for all... I was one of the borderline candidates... and failed level one, however "kicked ass" on ethichs--i.e. >70%... leading me to believe, that the whole ethics counts more especially if on the boarderline is one big crock!!!!

ethic is the easiest portion so thats y more stress is being given in syllabus outline or on inst site +++++++++++++ think so

Hey bbking! How do you know you were borderline? What was your feedback from the other sections?

If you are over 50% for all areas will you pass?
Any ideas?

I was very pleased with your notes and question bank. I especially like the mock exams because it helped to pull everything together.
