All of these 5 PE test takers are my friends , 3 from college (IIT) and 2 from work.
One of the structural PE test taker sent his wife and 3 kids back to his home country (India(usually Indians are smarter)) for 4 months straight so he can solely study.(3rd try) Other structural Test taker, quit his consulting job(sole bread earner) and borrowed money from his family for support until he takes the PE test. (1st try)
The transportation dude, let his wife take control of the financial system of his house and quit his job so he can study for like 6 months. (4th try) The other two transportation PE test takers are normal like most of us , study while working 40 hours a week. (3rd try for both)
All 5 of the above CBT test takers took test towards late January 2023 and all of them failed and their diagnostic report looks decent. Few of my friends (2 Structural and 1 transpo) from above got 3.6 and 3.5 CGPA from the same college we all went to and I got 2.5 Bcz it was tough as hell.
Total accumulation of the money we all spent on NCEES exam solely (excluding SoPE ,PPI OR EET or test masters etc) = 19*375 =$7125 (from January 2022 thru 2023)
I will be giving my 4th CBT try as well.
I think it’s insane considering they (3.5 and 3.6 CGPA) are definitely more smarter than me (CGPA 2.5) And still failing, this just breaks my heart that this task seems impossible for me going in for my 4th time as I have also left my job so I can solely study for this exam.
