UBE Post Exam Followup Form

There is a lot of useful information in examinee data when it is analyzed. Help me help you by filling out the below UBE post exam information. If you think you may not have passed, filling out this form immediately after you take the exam (while the information is still fresh in your mind) can help you later. For example, using this information, I track the key details of your attempt, so if you later find that you failed the exam, I will try to match your responses/statistics to whoever previously submitted the most comparable details (and later passed) to give you their advice on what worked for them. This information also helps me to better understand the exam and to give better advice in the future. If you start to fill it out and decide it is too daunting, simply send me what you complete – partial information is better than no information. If you were not a subscriber, skip the section that pertain to the subscription site. If you are not a re-taker, skip the section regarding past attempts.

Please make sure to complete all the fields. If you are not certain, estimations are OK.
