Default Average # Attempts

May I know how many attempts it takes, on average for you to pass a written exam?

It takes so much of effort and time to study for a written exam. Even if it's for a re-sit, you still need to put in as much time as a new attempt. How do you find time and keep yourself motivated facing such a tough luck in the exam? Have you ever thought of giving up? What keeps you going?

i have 26 grade slips so far and i'm still waiting to hear back from my 9th attempt at the final assessment... and u don't get "fail" grade slips for the assessments so i guess i'd have a whole lot more, smh

motivation has been extremely hard for me, at least in writing this stinkin' paper! it's been over 10 years since i took my 1st preliminary exam.
