Default Since Pass/Fail result comes 8 weeks later...

what do I put on my resume in place of "sitting" after taking it?


Right now it's:

MFE SITTING August 7, 2012



Also, in the next 8 weeks when applying for jobs, does it help your chances that companies see that you took MFE although they don't know the result?

Awaiting Results.

Yes it helps with job applications. Awaiting results is better than ''sitting'' or ''failed.'' Of course it would be good to put ''passed'' but I would rather put ''awaiting results'' for 8 weeks and apply for jobs than fail it and only have P & FM on my resume.

I agree with TheShark. Put "Awaiting Results" next to it to let employers know that you have taken it already; it's better than leaving it off completely.
