This is the first exam I’ve taken where I’m so sure I failed I’m not nervous at all. It’s kind of refreshing really. If things don’t go as expected then that is a welcome surprise.

Same.

Just curious - Did you feel unprepared going in, or did you feel well prepared but got blindsided by the questions/length?

Not the person you asked but I felt pretty prepared going in, then felt somewhat blindsided by some of the questions. Seems like a lot of people felt similarly so I'm hoping that in some way helps. Haven't thrown in the towel just yet.

I went in feeling okay, I wouldn't say I felt "well prepared." I had some life distractions leading up to this sitting.

I thought I had the potential to pass at the end of the reading period. But I practiced extraordinarily poor time management on IQ1, and that flowed through the rest of the exam.

This is where the experience of failing last year helped me. I still wasted too much time on IQ1, but I recognized I needed to cut my losses much sooner.
