I'v been reading posts about this subject now and again but it's still a little unclear as to what I will be experiencing on the actual lab day.
Fact being that there are NO PARTIAL points in a section, how many points generally make up a section? Would it be possible to have an OSPF section for say 15 points, where a single mistake would probably ensure you failed the entire exam?
I would assume that there is some "reasonable", point-limit to the sections, with for instance a 12 point OSPF section divided into two or three parts and points, but then again, that may be wishful thinking! ;-) I'm currently grading myself by failing entire sections if wrong at a single section requirement...which is good practice, but rather harsh! ;-)
Hope anyone who's done the exam can provide some insight here!
Thanks a lot,
I'm sure it's already been publicly explained (in one of those numerous Ask the expert threads led by Maurilio Gorito) that there's no partial credit by _question_, not by entire _section_, so it's not as bad as Reinier thought. But of course, if for example you fail question 1 on a section, and if later questions in the section depended on question 1, you could fail the whole section indirectly.
You absolutely don't have to care how scoring is done anyways, and knowing it won't change anything in the end. Your goal must be 100% accuracy, seriously! :) It's like these people asking for any Vue exam's pass mark: this satisfies one's curiosity, but won't improve in any way the chances of passing the exam.
