Another exam out of the way.

So, John had put me on the spot by offering to allow me to do the Met exam today. While I felt I was nearly ready, I wasn’t completely confident.

He had someone coming in for a trial flight, so suggested I hit the books for an hour or so, and see how I felt once he got back.

This I did, completing all 3 practice papers in the AFE Q&A book, and about two thirds of the questions in the Confuser. I was relatively confident by this point, so decided to go ahead with the exam.

I used my usual technique, making a first pass through the paper answering all the questions I thought I definitely knew the answers to. After this, I was left with 4 or 5 questions, that I went through and answered on the second pass.

I made a final pass through, re-reading all the questions, choosing an answer and checking that this matched the answer I had actually noted down. One of the questions at the end I came up with a different answer, and on further study decided that the new answer was the correct one.

Big mistake! I got 95%, with the only incorrect answer being the one I’d changed. And my first answer was correct!

Oh well, next exam will be Navigation.

    Sod’s law that the one you change will be from right to wrong!

    Indeed! It was obvious afterwards that the original one was right. Oh well, I guess 95% will do!
