It got me as well: I tried the EU concours and failed…I took the test earlier this year, after about 2 weeks of rather relaxed studying. Not a big surprise I failed, quite the opposite. I managed to get 23 out of 30 points, while the pass point was at 24.333. And although I went well above the required marks to pass, I have not entered the best 440 people taking the exam. Tough.
The actual result was:
Test a): 7.667/10 (pass mark 5)
Test b): 15.333/20 (pass mark 10)
Total: 23/ 30
Pass mark: 24.333
It’s a pity I can’t directly compare these results to those of Jon (with the best blog discussion of an EU concours), would at least get some satisfaction in beating him while failing…
