    I just read a post on LinkedIn about a guy who said he was unable to type anything for the last 20-30 mins of 6C. He ended up passing with a 6. I’m not sure if he filed a grievance complaint. I guess either way, his result implies that there was some adjustment that contemplated the situation. Either that or he did phenomenally well on the rest of the test.

    That was me. And I shared here the response CAS gave me. They said they’ve let the Exam Chair know about my situation. I used the grievance form right after I came home from the exam. I passed the exam so I don’t know whether they adjusted anything or not. If I had failed, I would have been able to look at the questions I missed and see whether they gave me points for my answers in the grievance form or they didn’t.

    Because in the grievance form, I explained them my situation, provided the PEARSONVUE case number and also mentioned the questions I missed and what I wanted to write in those. I felt good (not exceptional) for the other questions I did in the exam. I believe I did enough to pass.

    My interpretation to this is that they might have checked the exam without considering the missed questions. If I passed, then they will probably ignore looking at my grievance form. If I failed, then probably they would have looked at the questions I missed and then decide whether to adjust my grading in anyway or not.

    The questions I missed were not the calculation ones (as those were the ones I did in the beginning). I left those ‘list items’ type of questions at the end, which is what I missed. And I believe I missed 3 of those questions.

    Hope this helps anyone who might face some difficulty in the future. I really hope no one goes through this torture but in case they do, they know what I did.

    I didn’t post in any community in LinkedIn. I just wrote a post and people came across it through their network.
