February 2013 Exam Statistics

The results from the Feb. 1, 2013 examination are in. Of the 27 people who took the exam (or parts of it), 12 are now Certified Federal Surveyors! Congratulations!

This brings the total number of Certified Federal Surveyors to 592.

The exam is divided into three units. Here are the results for each unit:

  • 13 students took Unit #1, 100% passed
  • 27 students took Unit #2, 44% passed
  • 16 students took Unit #3, 81% passed
Unit #2 continues to be the most difficult unit.

Some trainees were retaking a failed unit; of the 20 units re-taken 9 were successfully passed (45%).

Another way to look at this exam is based on the first, second or third attempt:

  • First attempt……… 55% passing rate
  • Second attempt….. 40% passing rate
  • Third attempt……... 20% passing rate
In total, 56 units were taken and 38 were passed (68%).

We are proud of all trainees who dedicated the time and effort to attempt this rigorous and thorough examination.
