I finished BEC with about a hour left. 🙁 Thanks for the video!June 6, 2018 at 3:35 pm #1823651AnonymousInactive
I would say it's a good thing. It usually means you know what you're doingJune 6, 2018 at 3:44 pm #1823665June 6, 2018 at 4:21 pm #1823713AnonymousInactive
For what it's worth for those who speed through test:
FAR – finished one hour early, got a 77
BEC – finished 1.5 hours early, got a 79
REG – finished 40 minutes early, awaiting results on 6/28
AUD – taking it tomorrow morning (6/7). Based on Jeff's comments on people finishing AUD quickly, this will be interesting…
In hindsight, I do need to slow down a bit, as I've cut it close on my first two scores. Kinda had a mental lapse in REG and got overly frustrated with the SIMs and submitted too early. I regret not going through the final testlet more thoroughly. We'll see if it cost me.June 6, 2018 at 6:06 pm #1823815June 6, 2018 at 6:39 pm #1823837MIsconnieParticipantJune 6, 2018 at 8:52 pm #1824026Superdude3000Participant
I always used every single minute at my disposal. would review review review my last teslet making sure I didn't miss little details and on EVERY SINGLE EXAM I caught myself making at least one mistake. Use that time to quadruple check your answers and/or use the AL – you paid for the time, get the best bang for your buck. Could be the difference between a 74 and 75.June 6, 2018 at 9:12 pm #1824035AnonymousInactive
I have always been a slow exam taker. I did have about 5 mins or less left with Audit, and I believe about 3 with FAR, but for the most part, I'm usually working down to the last second. With BEC I remember having a few minutes left with the written portion (before BEC had Sims), I read over my responses and started writing more on one that I was not too sure about.June 7, 2018 at 8:32 am #1824290itooshallpassParticipant
I'm decisive and I don't obsess or second-guess myself. I finished FAR with about an hour left and used most of that to re-check my last sims and fixed a couple mistakes. With AUD I walked out with almost 2.5 hours on the clock – different scenario that time, I had basically given up at that point because I didn't know what I was doing. Somehow I managed to pass, I guess I got lucky. But AUD definitely goes fast because there's so little calculation.June 7, 2018 at 9:09 am #1824325AnonymousInactive
I took FAR Q4 2017 and finished with about 10 minutes to go. My last SIM was a doozie so I took extra time looking up stuff in the AL. I felt the most pressed for time during FAR. For BEC in Q1 2018 I finished with maybe 5 minutes left, but I got to the written section with an hour to go. I took my time and made sure there were no grammatical errors and all my responses were coherent. I took REG yesterday and finished with an hour to go. My last set of SIMs were things I was much more prepared for than my 2nd set (which had 2 SIMs that kind of came out of left field,) so I really didn't need to go back and scrutinize everything for that final set. I wish I could've gone back to my 2nd set of SIMs and looked those over, but it was obviously too late.
It's just freaking me out now that I finished so early. I felt more prepared for REG than either FAR or BEC. I absolutely blew through the first set of MCQ's in like 20 minutes, but I think I got a really easy first set. The second set of MCQ's were much harder, but they only took me like 45-50 minutes. Not a lot of my MCQ's had math involved, so maybe that was why it didn't take as long. Also, the first SIM I got was the research question and it was a very specific topic that I found in the AL right away. So barely after an hour I was done all the MCQ's and 1 SIM.
Sorry for the long post, but I am still processing my experience from yesterday in my head and it was bothering me a little bit that I was done so early compared to the rest of my tests. It's just quite a coincidence that Jeff posted a video about finishing early the same day as I took the only test I finished early.June 7, 2018 at 9:16 am #1824338AnonymousInactiveJune 7, 2018 at 11:36 am #1824577January 3, 2023 at 1:22 am #3315706joeGuest
I sat for Reg on 12-09-2023. I finished with about 30 minutes to spare. The test got progressively harder very quickly. By the time I got to the simulations, I felt I was taking a much harder exam. Hope this is a good sign Any thoughts ?January 3, 2023 at 1:22 am #3315709joeGuest
