    Took the exam last night. 70% pass mark and I got....69%!
    To be honest, I got a little bit cocky and that bit me on the a$$. Booked in for a week or so later and going to spend this week reviewing my notes, writing code and working through practice tests.

    The exam was pretty cool though. A lot of "What happens when this code is run", fill in the blanks and general Python questions. One thing I do not like though, its not a proctored exam so if you spend too much time on a question, you get a big screen flash up saying suspicious activity!

    Well done getting that close. I am gutted for you being so close but that would mean there’s not much more for you to do. The exam sounds pretty cool you’ve got me feeling tempted now

    Yeah, a bit frustrating mate but it is what it is. The course is really interesting (via https://edube.org/study/pe1) and if you complete the course and pass the test, you get 50% off the exam.

    Tough luck mate, better luck next time. I got half way studying for that exam and then stopped as I had to start studying for something else.

    I do have to say that failing by basically 1 or 2 questions is worse, imo, than failing it by a better percentage.

    Totally agree @Kitkatninja
    At least if its a significant fail you can go back and focus on certain areas.

    On a side note, sat it again this morning and passed with 80% so thats lovely.
    I was considering doing the PCAP Exam but its about £290 so Im thinking of giving that a bit of a swerve for the time being. I wanted a Python cert just to show I know Python and can use it. Maybe if Work were to pay for it id consider it.

    In the mean time, straight into the Google Cloud Digital Leader course.
