REG didn\'t answer 3 questions; did i fail?

    I retook REG just yesterday, I ran out of time and was not able to answer basically anything in the final testlet. I only quickly filled in 4 answers, but was not able to do anything else.

    I wanted to get REG out the way before the 2019 changes. For the rest of the test I feel good/okay about. Of course there were a couple things here a there I was unsure about, but there were definitely some questions I got right, and parts of the other task-based simulations.

    Having basically three tasked-based simulations wrong, does that mean I mostly likely failed?

    Its okay to be harshly honest on your thoughts. Thanks.

    Failing is not the end; keep trying. I will keep trying.

    As long as you rocked the MCQ, and one of those TBS that you left blank / didn't complete was a pretest, there is some hope. It's all relative to how you scored on the rest of the exam. Crossing my fingers for you.

    FAR - 76 (Lost credit), 76
    AUD - 80
    BEC - 76
    REG - 75

    Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.


    Have you passed any other exam? You could gage how you felt about those other exams to this one. I would say the chances that you passed might be low, hopefully one of the questions you did not answer was a pretest. Can you please update this post when you get your results?

    AUD - 64, 80 Passed on 10/09/17

    BEC - 75 Passed on 12/09/17

    FAR - 69, 71, 73, 83 Passed on 06/10/18

    REG - 81 Passed on 09/10/17


    I did not complete 2 of the last 3 SIMs on my FAR exam when I was timed out, although I did enter some partial information on each if I remember correctly.
    Still ended up with a 91, so I wouldn't stress about it. You can't change it anyway, just hope for the best.
    Good luck.

    @Karla – I had the same exact experience as you; I took it on 11/26.


    Thank you all for your replies/thoughts and your good vibes.

    I have not passed any other exam, so I would not be able to compare how I felt. I will update this post, hopefully it helps other people who had similar experiences.

    would you be able to update this post as well, once you get your results? Good luck!!!

    Failing is not the end; keep trying. I will keep trying.


    got my score today…82. i cried with joy because i completely guessed on the last SIM testlet which had 3 SIMS i had no clue how to complete. good luck.


    Congrats! I had similar experience with FAR. I ran out of time and completely guessed on 2 out of 3 sims on the last testlet, and got 82

    AUD - 76
    BEC - 86
    FAR - 82
    REG - 87
    No pain, no gain
