    Default CPP Exam Fail Rate

    What is the fail rate for the CPP Exam?

    After talking to several other photographers, it seems like a lot of people fail the exam.

    Thank you so much!

    Jamie,
    It's true that many people fail the exam on their first try but then again how much of an accomplishment would it be if the test was easy? People fail for a variety of reasons but with the right knowledge and preparation most of these can be overcome. Apply yourself to learning as much as you can about photography and the science behind it and you'll not only pass but you'll be a better photographer in the end.

    As to the actual percentage that fail, I have no clue.

    don't feel bad if you fail it the 1st time
    I took it 3 times before I passed
    of course o didn't open the book till the 3rd go
    I missed it by 2 1/2 points the first try
    1 1/2 the 2nd
    now that was in mid 80s before digital
    I imagine it's changed since then
    print submission was a breeze

    I am taking it for the 3rd time next month. I am also studying differently, sleeping in my own bed and only driving across town this time.

    Ey I passed the first time however I was barely at 75 lol. I probably lucked out on some random question!

    It would be interesting to know the actual pass/fail rate.

    I know someone who failed it 5 times. His reasoning was that he was sure that a couple of questions were right. What I had to explain to him was that there were 28 other questions that he needed to pay attention to. So, don't get hung up on the few questions you know are wrong, just get the other 28 right.

    If your business depends on you, you don't own a business-you have a job. And it's the worst job in the world because you're working for a lunatic... You can't close it when you want to, because if it's closed you don't get paid. You can't leave it when you want to, because if you leave there's nobody there to do the work. You can't sell it when you want to, because who wants to buy a job?
