    I'm so depressed, I studied and studied, and work as a Scrum Master. Both times I got an 83% on the test.

    What am I doing wrong?

    You may need to spend some time with other Scrum Masters who can challenge your perspective. A training course might help, as might going through the content of these forums.

    Hi Cece, first off lets not be too harsh here.

    Two attempts and at 83% means your almost there with it and yes I know how your feeling.
    Have you attended a course recently as for sure its time away from the environment, real study time?
    This helped me as I was in the zone with people so as Ian points out, its that challenge that may be missing.
    Don't give up on this now at this stage would be my advice, the exam is not easy even for people with experience.


    This was my journey to PSM1 so know how you feel and how to make some progress from now.

    Hi Ian: I did take a Professional Scrum Master training class (certified by Scrum.Org) in July, and studied from that training class, and studied the Srum Guide (a lot), and took my first test inJuly and scored 83%. I also studied and reviewed everything I could and took it the second time yesterday, and scored the same 83%.

    Hi Cece,
    did you do the open assessment in advance? It really helps to do it before the real assessment, at least until you score 100%.
    Best, Ludwig

    Thanks Michael: I will follow your advice and try even harder and read the forums. I took practice test many times and scored 100% and studied the practice questions and Scrum.Org guide. I thinks its the subjective quetions I maybe missing.

    I will keep trying...thanks for the support.

    You have taken training , studied and studied , practiced and experienced as SM still you have not reached the required score in PSM1.

    It's not that you are not having knowledge on scrum. It's the confidence you need to have to crack the exam, it comes only by practicing in a simulated exam environment.

    My suggestion to you is practice rigorously

    Allow me to share my thoughts as well....

    A) I would suggest writing to support@scrum.org and asking for feedback to where you could improve.
    (I do not think this is automatically provided at he end if the assessment)

    B) I would reach hit to the Instuctor for further guidance

    C) Continue interacting with peers

    Good luck in your journey and I hope some of this helps.

    I truly believe you're almost there.

    Dont worry, my advise is to build a frame work about the knowledge since the scrum itself is a framework, there are so many little pieces around about scrum, but after you summarize them and put them into the framework, you will pass it; one method I used is to write down all the open assessment down in a paper, and do them again and again until I know why the wrong options are wrong and why the right ones are right, then you will gain a higher level in understanding the scrum.
