Hi!! Is there any difference between the practice exams and the final exams on Achievable?

I noticed I have two final exams and a bunch of practice exams. Are the final exams harder?

Thanks!

Hi @Clifton_Quitzon, good question!

Yes, while the Final exams and the Full practice exams are all weighted similarly to the real exam, the questions on the Final exams have been hand-selected by our instructors, and they are a bit more challenging. They specifically test the most important concepts on the exams; each curated exam is a great tool/resource to use to determine if youâ€™re really ready.

Additionally, the Final exams are designed to be taken only one time each since the questions are curated. In contrast, the Full practice exams are semi-randomized, giving you a different selection of questions on each take, so you can take as many as youâ€™d like.

Thanks! I know you said they should be taken once, but I already took both of mine and want to redo one of them at least once. If I redo one of the final exams will I get a different set of questions?

Thank you!

The questions on the Final exams (not the Full exams) are hand-selected by our instructors - you could retake them, but youâ€™ll see the same questions again! If you donâ€™t get 100% on your second take, it means you didnâ€™t spend enough time reviewing your mistakes

Is there a measure of relative difficulty for the Final exams vs the Full Exams? I didnâ€™t realize how different theyâ€™d be until I read this post and I got an 80 on Final Exam A. Wasnâ€™t sure how it measures up to the Full Exam.

Hi @Warren_Prosacco, we do our best to ensure all our exams have similar difficulty and questions compared to the real ones. The â€śFinalâ€ť exams are just a bit more challenging since our team specifically selected these questions to ensure a deep understanding of the material!
