I have been preparing for the ACP-120 exam and have given it my all. I did the courses and took all your tips to heart, even from the call with the 5 tips.

Now I still failed the exam the first time on September 10, 2022 which made me sad. Now I wrote the exam again on September 22, 2022.

In the course description it says that it is up to 70 questions. In the exam, on September 22, 2022, there were actually 75.

Then at the end of the exam it said that I scored 63.7% of 64.0% of the points and did not pass. When I then received the confirmation email it said 63.0% at the end. Why would be rounded here and why -0.7%.

What I want to say is that I find this unfair. I do not know how my colleagues who are also preparing for the exam see it. According to the numbers and what they said should have passed. Is there a way of fairness there at Atlassian?

I don't see any unfairness here, only a bit of inconsistency.

If they've changed the (maximum) number of questions from 70 to 75, then someone absolutely should update the documentation to tell us that.

On the scoring, I suspect the inconsistency is a simple one - the exam system is giving you a percentage rounded to 1 decimal place, but the email has been told to round it to 0 decimal places (humans don't tend to care about the decimal places in a percentages.  In most cases, we don't usually care about the preciseness of the second digit either).  But, yes, I would like to see the email lined up with what the exam system reports back to you, whatever rounding is chosen.

That sounds unfair to me if you're score was 63.7 and the pass mark is 64 that's a pass in my opinion. 

It's always worth asking - Atlassian are fair and transparent and it might take some time but they'll correct a mistake if one has been made or clarify it for you if not.

One thing is, You can raise a Atlassian support ticket with your concern and now as you have experience of exam for two times, better to sit and recall all the points which were asked in the exam and this time for sure you can crack it. Hope it helps.

I don't know, I believe in Atlassian and sell Atlassian products to our customers. Thanks for your tip but now I can pay the fee again, take time I don't have and lose sales. The exam is exhausting. Writing again is twice as exhausting. Why when I've given everything on my part. I'll submit a ticket to support and see how Atlassian responds. I don't want anything for free, just that it's correct.

@Pero Medic Do you mean October 22 of this year?

No, i ment September 2022, I correct it
