Splunk PowerUser exam failure

Hello,
I've completed the 3 courses including the infrastructure exam after using and implementing Splunk for 1 year now.

But I do have trouble sucessfuly finishing the final exam for the 2nd time in a row, and only 1 try left.
I'm not a native english speaker and find some questions very confusing.

Is there an option to see which questions I failed, instead of only a percentage-score on a knowledge block? I'd like to learn from my mistakes, but now I'm left blind.

Thanks in advance,
Remco

Even native English speakers have difficultly with some confusing questions. Unfortunately, there is no breakdown of your score available.

Hi Rezdrak,
I've done nothing different the third time, but was glad I had passed the exam.
After that I contacted Splunk and asked why there is no learning moment from the exams. I don't care about the number for passing the exam, but just liked to know what I had misunderstood.

Unfortunately that hasn't changed still. It feels like not being told to do that by your parents, but they not explaining why.

Good luck!

Hi RemcoKas

Totally agree with you on that. The number is not important.. but understanding the ones that we have doubt and want to get the understanding is what we seek.

Anyway wish me luck for the next exam. Hopefully will pass it.

Thanks again for the advise.

Thanks Rich!
I finally managed to pass on the 3rd time.

Still curious though what the correct answers would be, it would add up to the learning experience.
