There are a lot of factors as to why students don’t pass the first time around. Here’s the thing, you are not alone. 10% of NPTE attempts result in failure.
The good news: Failure is NOT final.
Typically, students fall into two primary categories as to why they didn’t pass on their initial go around. The first reason surrounds a poor match of preparing the wrong materials with the wrong test taking strategies. The second reason is probably why you are here: Failure to pass came due to a combination of life events, test taking trepidation, and potentially… reading comprehension, technological, or linguistic challenges.
- Test anxiety.
- Time management.
