Hey everybody,

So results are coming in from the Part III and for me, I didn't pass. Got a 72 and need a 75 to pass. Can someone who actually got points back give me some pointers? review vs rescore? How to go about it. Is getting 3 points even possible?Can we bring laptops and stuff? Thanks guys..

Hey icekitsune, I wanted to know if you got the 3 points or not, if you don't mind. I missed it by 4 points just now and was wondering how much of a chance I had at the challenge session.

Hey, did you challenge the exam? Did you get points back?

Are the results for June exam out?
From What I heard, getting points back are hard but worth a shot
No the results are not out yet. I'm so restless just waiting for it. I am just praying to God that I passed.

Hi
Could someone please guide me about the compounding review session . I missed the exam by 3 points and I need some pointers for challenge session. And
If someone ever got 3-4 points back after reviewing the exam.

I failed January 2017 exam by a point. When you go to rechallenge, you're not allowed to bring electronics but you can bring out printed papers bound in a binder. I challenged all the questions I got wrong, except math. I gave great evidence- cited the package inserts, lexicomp, etc etc but I didn't get the point back. If your answer isn't written exactly how they want it, it's really difficult to get any points back.

Thanks for the detailed answer.
That means it's impossible to get any point back, it's really depressing :(
When and how did they inform you after the review session??

Did you pass the June exam?

Definitely go to the challenge session. It will be worth it, trust me I had to go twice. You can get points back. I got 6 points back my last time and passed. Hood and Floor Proctors are considered infallible. Focus on challenging other areas, especially mis-interpretation of your E/O reasonings and the profile reviews. 100% definitely bring the most recent printed version of the Lexicomp handbook for those. You can bring as many bound resources as you can carry. Bring a basic calculator too. 2 hours is enough to find some challenge-able points. Write out your challenges in a reasonable and respectful way. Cite the Lexicomp handbook as your source over RxPrep. Results from the challenge sessions took 20 days to arrive in the mail after the June 2014 challenge session, and 16 days to arrive after the January 2015 challenge session. Good luck!

Thanks a lot for the detailed response . That means there's still some hope.I think I lose due to day 1 profiles :(
Should I buy this, lexicomp latest edition?
