The last of the NCRC, and good riddance!

I took the last test on the NCRC today, Locating Information.  I had studied and prepared for the last 2 weeks.  I got to bed relatively early for me and slept in relatively late, so I had about 9 1/2 hours of sleep.  I had a good breakfast of Bran Chex, fresh strawberries, and milk with vitamin D.  I was prepared to do my best.

They had said at every test that this was the hardest of the 3 and that people typically scored lower on this test than the others, but I was hoping to be the exception.  I was praying for a gold.  Here’s the breakdown again:

  • 3 = bronze
  • 4 = silver
  • 5 = gold
  • 6 = platinum

I was disappointed to find that I only scored a silver on this test.  This means that when I get my certificate, it will show my score as silver, even though I scored a gold on the math test and a platinum on the reading test.  The certificate uses the lowest score, but employers can check with the employment department to find out what the individual scores were – if they care to check on someone with a silver certificate.

I called Mark and told him how disappointed I am.  Bless his heart, he told me he’s proud of me!  I suppose it really only matters if I decide to go work for a company that cares about such things.  For freelancing, the important thing to my clients should be that I got a platinum in reading.  Mostly I’m just glad this is over.  Now to get on with my business!
