    PEV Exam results

    Hi All

    Am I glad I read your posts! Found out today that I've failed the second section of PEV and thought I'd fail PCR not the other way around?!!! Having read some of your posts here, however, I think it may be worth my while appealing, so thank you. I have to admit I did run out of time but that ruddy turbine question threw me completely and it's good to know that I wasn't the only one!

    The more of us do this, the better.
  • JamesJames Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 24
    I am appealing, please let me know if anyone else is!

    Appeal

    Hi James

    Just a quick note to confirm that I will be appealing. 4 out of 6 in one class (as detailed on another post) is horrendous?!

    I am just waiting to read the Chief examner's report because I think there will be much said about section 2.2. I was certain I had failed section 2 on PEv becuase I got lost in a sea of figures (which were all wrong on later reworking) yet I somehow managed to pass the whole paper. I would think there will be much said about this particular part of the paper and wonder if the whole question was disregarded because of the obvious problems that so many of us had with it.

    I feel for all of you that didn't pass the paper (especially those who only faile done section) but I am sure you will all pass next time - you all seem to talk here with far more confidence than I have ever had.

    Good luck to those of you who request a reassessment of their scripts - I know for certain that they sometimes upgrade people's marks (it happened to someone at my college after December's papers).

    Has anyone actually sent their appeal off yet? still have to try get my tutor/boss to sign it yet!
  • Sonny_LSonny_L Well-Known Registered Posts: 201
    Congratulations to everybody who is now finished. I passed PCR, PEV, BTC and PTC and now AAT is over for good!!

    Finding an ACA contract seems as though it may be difficult for a non grad though... :(

    I am so glad that I started this thread. I thought I was the only one who had failed after thinking I would pass.

    I have spoken to my tutor today and she is really surprised to hear that I have failed. She has advised me to appeal against the mark, which I am going to. Its worth the £42 I think. And if the outcome is still the same then I know where I need to improve.

    Overall the pass rate in the country for this PEV exam was 56.5% Thats not to good in my opinion as its only just over half that has passed. I think something must have gone wrong along the way for so many people to be feeling like this.

    I am so going to appeal, the sooner the better in my mind! Does anyone know how long it will take for me to get an answer when I do appeal?

    It take 2-4 wks to get an answer back from AAT. I am also going to appeal my PEV result, i passed all my exams apart from PEV section 1... im quite shocked at that as its the exam i was most confident about in june!!!

    Goodluck wit your appeal... hope our N's turn to Y's!!!

    Guys what did you write in section 3 of the appeal form? What reasons and evidence did you give to support the review request?

    Thanks :wink::wink::wink::wink:
  • Laura88Laura88 Feels At Home Registered Posts: 48
    Thanks for this info. Going to sort it tonight I think.

    I really can't beleive how many people are actually in the same position as me, glad I'm not the only one?

    A lot of people were going to complain about the wording of the 2.2 question. I must say it was poorly worded, but can I just say, this was the exam where the AAT had put Level 3 on the front of the Paper instead of Level 4. Because we all questioned it and the examaner got all flustered, becasue of this big who-are our exam was postponed 45mins so we were all sat in the exam room at our desk just waiting for he ok. Which I found quite off putting! Maybe this is part of the reason for the failure! Don't know but I am def putting that in my appeal.

    I basically wrote that I believed I'd failed on section 2 question 2.2 and that I felt that the question was badly worded and that any error was due to a lack on understanding of what the question wanted not any lack of understanding of the subject matter. I also explained that I had completed their feedback form at the time of the exam to say I thought it was badly written and hoped they'd have reflected it in their marking.
  • plamenaplamena Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 16
    Yeh u should if u really had that problem u should mention it. I'd say about the wording only :001_smile: didnt have your problem

    Poppy, this is a very good reply. But does this section not need to be completed by tutor/employer? Or can they just sign it off?

    I failed PEV section 2 and I am extremely disappointed as I felt I had done well on the paper apart from the turbine question which I did not understand. No amount of extra revision would have helped me understand that question.

    Does anyone else feel that they have been cheated but at the same time is it pointless to appeal? The reason I am concerned that appealing may be a waste of time and money is because I think they will just check they have marked the paper correctly. I know i answered the turbine incorrectly because the wording was so bad that I didn't know what was expected. I don't think an appeal will turn my N to a Y on that basis.

    Does anyone else feel like this?

    Kind of to be honest I am all confused and disapointed. At least when you appeal u've got a tiny chance to turn the "N" to "Y" as if u dont appeal u would never know. Thats how I feel.
    What is it about the feedback form after the exam? I never got 1

    Jangles, I think it is worth appealling as I now know of quite a few peoples papers that the mark had been undervalued and after the appeal, they had actually passed and not failed. And, because I feel as though I am quite confident in PEV normally and thought I was going to pass, even if my mark does not change to a pass, they will give detailed feedback on where you went wrong so you can improve next time. I would appreciate this as I really don't know where I went wrong!!

    Plus with the overall pass rate for PEV being low, the more people that appeal, the more chance of us all getting our marks changed.

    If you believe in yourself, then I think you should appeal. I am!

    Laura - I would have been asked to write it by boss even if it's not my section :001_tt2:



    I understand where some are coming from but appealing is not just about us, if we don't complain future years will suffer like we have. I think it's very short sighted and what if???

    I took an extra week of my own leave to prepare for those exams and I want to know why I failed and If I've failed unfairlt then I want to know. Come on everyone lets look out for everyone:thumbup:
  • PoppyPoppy Well-Known Registered Posts: 105
    The form was somewhere on the system will have a look and get back to you, might not still be on there.
  • tripod333tripod333 Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 20
    I would definitely appeal if you believe in yourself. And it might be worth it to get some actual feedback from the exam so you know what to improve on.
    I feel lucky that I have scraped through both PCR & PEV, had convinced myself had not passed at least one. Congrats to all those that passed and commiserations to those that didn't this time. The AAT qualification would not be worth having it was too easy so don't give up it will be worth it in the end!

    I failed pev section 1! out of all the exams i took { PEV, BTC & PTC}.I think i was most confident about PEV.... everyone is saying they've failed section 2 due to the turbines... so its more confusing for me, as i failed section 1!

    I dont know where i went wrong in section 1 .... i do feel cheated about the result so appealing is the only thing i feel i can try do to change it!!! I hope if many people appeal, AAT have more sympathy!!!

    Whats more dissappointing is if I have to resit in dec, then its a wait of 6 months/ 1 yr before i can start acca!!!

    I am printing off the appeal form as i type!!! I feel happier already knowing I am doing something positive about it instead of sitting here being angry and feeling cheated!

    Hopefully it won't take long to find out :thumbup:

    Thanks for the advice. :001_smile:
  • plamenaplamena Settling In Nicely Registered Posts: 16
