I received my score breakdown from State a week or so ago, and I was surprised at just how close to the passing level I was. Here are the numbers:
Job Knowledge: 56.47
Biographical: 41.13 (an abysmal score!)
English Expression: 61.16
Total Score: 158.76
Essay: 10 (yay!)
I was really hoping to do better on the test since I don't have much working for me when it comes to the QEP. The bio section was awful; I have my theories as to why I didn't do so well, and it has nothing to do with being inconsistent. These scores and my PNQ's must now get me to the oral assessment, and as badly as I want it, I'm unfortunately expecting a rejection. I am going up against people with all sorts of impressive backgrounds (lawyers, Ph.Ds, Peace Corps volunteers, etc.), and I don't even have a bachelor's degree. I'm unemployed, had barely any corporate experience, and none in management. I am desperately hoping that they see something in my essays that make them want to take a chance on me, but I'm not expecting it.
We're supposed to hear back in mid- to late-June, but I'm hoping it will be sooner (it was only three weeks instead of the 8-10 they originally said for the WE results). Time will tell, and until then I'm going to be a nervous wreck.
