Did not pass the ACE certification exam.

Though I have attended the exam very well and I know that I have made most of the right answers, in spite of that I didn't pass the ACE certification exam. What could be the cause behind this ?

  • Hitesh, not wishing to cause any insult, I suspect the cause behind you failing is you didn't pass enough questions correctly, the notes tell me the exam is 60 mins with about 45 questions and a pass mark of 70%. I suspect you didn't answer 70% correctly. By my maths that's about 32 questions so I suspect you answered more that 13 questions incorrectly. remember a lot of exams use a lot of trick answers to catch people out. I read that you get two attempts at the exam so I would say revise some more, check out the forums, carry out some research and I'm sure you will pass second time.

  • Sorry to hear that. Did you go through all the topics under https://community.aviatrix.com/t/y4hh4ml/ace-associate-self-paced-learning-resources in addition to the online course?

    I took the Associate test today and I really doubt I've passed it. Honestly, I've followed the course on https://aviatrix.teachable.com, looked at the Videos a couple of time, took notes and completed the questions at the end every modules. Furthermore I've red just the text pages of the Self Pace resources, but not looked also at the additionsl Videos.

    My feeling during the exam was that the difficulty level of the questions and the tricky way they were intentionally formulated to proof the understanding of the topics were far beyond what was contained in the material and I felt it not really fair.

    I'm not saying, there is not enough study material, but if the tests are that way, I would expect that the available material would be a little more organized and targeted to the tests. The Cisco Press Certification Resources could be, from my point of view, a good reference.



  • Hi  DarioF ,

    I am part of the ACE team, and want to assure you that we take all feedback very seriously. We have revamped the content recently and will revisit the questions to ensure they are aligned to the learning objectives and content in the course. 

    Again, I truly appreciate you taking the time to post your feedback.

    Thank You
