Impact of exam failures on students - Actual cases

A failure in the certification exam can put a spanner in the works when it comes to your promotion or pay revision. It could lead to a potential financial loss of USD 12K per year plus a significant jolt to one’s self-confidence and self-esteem.

Here’s how -

This can ultimately leave you concerned about what this might mean for your BA career.

Here’s the story of one of our students from Charlotte, who approached us after failing the CBAP certification twice.

With over 7 years of BA experience and an overall experience of 14 years up her sleeve, she was distraught and disheartened and was even thinking of trying CCBA instead of CBAP

When she approached Adaptive for the first time, all she wanted was some genuine expert guidance to fulfill her dream goal of getting CBAP certified.

The agony of failure can impact certification aspirants in many ways.

It can lead to a delay in reaching your certification goals. Remember, a failure will undoubtedly be much more expensive in terms of money, effort, mental agony, and reputation loss among your official/friends circle. Above all, it will take away all your energy and motivation. That’s exactly why you must take a prudent decision considering these factors.

Sometimes, failure can also lead to the abandonment of the certification journey. Not becoming certified can result in a setback towards your career goals. It is a proven fact that certified professionals earn more, have better chances at promotions, etc. The economic downturn during the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic has also shown that having a certification in your resume gives you an edge over others.

Both these scenarios are not ideal and definitely not what you deserve.

One of our candidates was stood down by her organization during this crisis. She bounced back immediately as she had CBAP certification with her. She had done her CBAP with us about 3 years back. At that time, she had bagged a job in a new country. And now even after 3 years, she got another job. Benefits from becoming certified will be evident at every level of your career.
