Hi! I just finished the test. At the end I received a congratulation message, but no score, nothing. Just an alert I would have received an email in 1 to 3 days. Since I was not able to snip that message (PC locked), can I start the celebration or should I wait the mail? Thanks! C

Clara,

First, congratulations.

You will NOT receive a true "score" (that is, a number) from PMI, but you will received a breakdown of each rubric area in terms of where you are at (e.g. above target, target, below target, needs improvement). The actual "passing" score is a closely held secret at PMI, and, if my suspicions based on standardized testing are correct, will vary slightly from test to test. I don't believe you will get a notification sent to you that the information is available, but you will get an email stating that you passed. You'll have to log in to your PMI dashboard and do the exam analysis.

Again, congratulations. And, yes, start the celebration now.

Harry

Thanks Harry! Exactly as you said, I received today the confirmation email from PMI with the link to the test analysis. It went quite good, 4 areas above target and 1 at target. I really need to thank the PrepCast simulator for this result! Indeed, to study, I just used the PMBOK guide edition 6th and the simulator. Simulations made the difference. They helped with the questions (although it is true that the ones of the test are more difficult or maybe just in a different format) and to stay focused for 4 hours.
My advice to who has to take to exam is to keep an eye on the time, 270 minutes really fly. Check the time often (just to adjust your pace, not to make you anxious). As for the whiteboard, I do agree it is not agile to use, but it works. Good luck to the students and thanks to the teachers!C
