Hey Asingh- I am in the SAME boat as you!!!! I have already re-taken the exam multiple times, even separating the exams for different days (reading one day, writing the next), and for the life of me, I can not pass I as well work in the same county. I have finished all the requirements (including the RVE) and waited for the last year to take my exams. I did not realize the exam was this hard!!! Someone I ran into had to take the exam over 13 times. FINGERS crossed- not us! She said some exams are easier than others. Do not give up! I will continue to take it up until March 1 and will ask my principal if he could kindly request HR for an extension.
