Failed Architecture registration exam

I guess I knew I would, I have been putting it off for 4 years.

I am so embarrassed, nobody fails it, and I am now the girl who failed it.

I asked the institute for some help but they didnt offer me anything, they said I could get extra time if I had a letter from a doctor. But I could not afford to go to a psychologist and pay all this money. I guess I also thought I would be okay.

I feel quite crushed, I worked so hard, but I didn't work smart. Put too much time into certain things more than others.

And I was sick at the time of my interview which made me even worse.

This exam has been the cause of stress and anxiety for 4 years. I don't even want to try it again, but I know I should.

Is there anyone I can turn to for help, an organisation or such that will help me get the exam more manageable for me? I don't see myself ever passing this..

Re: Failed Architecture registration exam

Ps. I have a diagnosis and I showed this to them, but it didn't seem to mean much.

Re: Failed Architecture registration exam

Who gave you your diagnosis and how long have you had it? Did you get support services in high school or younger? Did you have an IEP?

Re: Failed Architecture registration exam

It sounds like the issue isn't around your ability to do the job but your ability to organise yourself and prioritise appropriately. I also sense there could be some self-esteem/self-worth issues in there.

I find exams & assessments tough...there's a thing about being judged for me which shuts my brain down and kicks the processing into my back brain resulting in brain-fog.

I would advise some form of therapy for this, there are therapists who can help with this. It's not a quick fix.... however you have a definite goal.... and probably a timescale.

Dpn't expect to get what you need from the NHS.... but if it's what you really want to do it's worth spending the cash.

best wishes

kilted.

Re: Failed Architecture registration exam

Now that you have sat the exam, you have a much better idea of what to expect.

I suggest that you study the contents of the exam, so you will be better prepared for next time.

Good luck!
