I failed to pass my PSM II assessment and the feedback is very poor. I would like to talk about a few questions that I probably failed to answer. Is it possible to talk about it here?

I also would like to know if I can make very short sentences to essay questions. I'm not a native english speaker. I loose many time to translate questions and find correct words for my answers. If it's possible, someone can give me an example of short answer?

This is a good point. I'm a native English speaker but I went right down to the wire answering the PSM II questions.

I reckon:

- it *should* be OK to write very brief sentences
- you may need more of them to represent or contrast points
- bullet points like this might help

Then again, the PSM II answers are positioned as being "essay style". So whereas most examiners will try and find marks in submitted factual material, and won't be particular about the format, I do wonder if that is entirely the case here.

Thank you Ian.

And do you think I can post few tricky questions of the PSM II assessment to talk about it here. It could help me to make progress or be more confident. Or is it forbidden?

Hi Abelle,

Thank you for your question. We discourage the posting of specific assessment questions on the forums, however, we absolutely encourage having discussions about the topics which are addressed in our assessments. We suggest starting a new forum thread to begin a conversation about the broader topic of which you'd like to gain a further understanding.
