Hey guys, long term lurker first time poster. I am feeling very depressed today. I took the exam yesterday and failed. This was my second attempt and I am feeling defeated. I’m currently in a post doctoral program and one of my requirements for finishing the post doc is to pass the eppp. I haven’t told anyone that I have taken the exam twice already and failed. I am embarrassed and ashamed and not sure how to move forward. I used the aatbs materials and to be really honest I didn’t score in the 60s or above. I just thought I’d take my chances and just get this thing over with and now I’m here sharing my ****ty experience with complete strangers because I don’t have anyone else to share it with due to embarrassment. I’m the biggest critic of myself so I felt that I’d i messaged the tread then at least you guys may not judge me having been through something kind similar as far as the anxiety. I felt like I was doing just fine and that I knew the answers on the exam yesterday and I blew it. My supervisor is also putting pressure on me to take the exam which is freaking me out. Any advice? I don’t like any of the aatbs questions I don’t feel they are worded similarliky to the actual exam in fact I have some hand me downs of AR stuff from friends and they seem more similar. How should I get back into studying after a horrible experience yesterday.
