    I received mine this morning around 2AM but didn't realized it and went to work then took and finished it around 230pm. I think I scored an 85 if my math is correct according to the number correct out of 30.

    The email says "If you pass this assessment, you will qualify for our valued scholarship to earn the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Cyber Ops certification"

    However, another portion of the email says "FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS".


    So, I guess yeah you may pass it but depending on what number you were to take it, then you are either in luck or out. So a person scoring 83 whom takes it today may get in while a person scoring 100%, yet, doesn't realize he has the email and takes in 4 days from now may not get in.

    Interesting that they are quizzing you on Linux and Windows . I looked at the blueprint and found a section for "Host based analysis" which makes up 19% of the exam. So that must be why.


    Code:
    1.0 Network Concepts
    
    
    12%
    2.0 Security Concepts 17%
    3.0 Cryptography 12%
    4.0 Host Based Analysis 19%
    5.0 Security Monitoring 19%
    6.0 Attack Methods 21%

    Will be interesting to see how this all pans out in the future. I'm guessing the NA Cyber Ops will be easy-mode Linux and Windows but NP and IE will go much deeper, but hopefully not too deep since I have no interest in becoming a sys admin.

    I dont think there will be an IE CyberOps......

    but hopefully not too deep since I have no interest in becoming a sys admin.
    A good sys admin, a good!, knows where to look for incidents so it will cross some stuff

    Completed the assessment as well. They stated they will notify you in a few days after passing the assessment - which wasn't that hard.
    Working on: CCNA - Security

    This. A subject matter expert should've checked the questions and answers

    I took an assessment the same day I received an e-mail from Cisco. It was last Thursday (08.09.2016). Today I received the following information from Cisco:
    Because of the intense interest in the scholarship program, there have been many test takers and thus a lot of results to review and analyze. By the end of October, we will let you know if there is availability in the program based on your results and student demand. Your studies will come in time for the upcoming release of the CCNA Cyber Ops curriculum.
    So I still need to wait around 1.5 months for final verdict.

    Got an email from Cisco this morning saying I have made it to the next phase which looks like another online questionnaire to complete before Monday 31st and then if successful I will be told by mid Nov.

    **Update**

    The final questionnaire is just to confirm some details name, email and what certifications you have either Cisco or other vendor certs and some other basic questions.

    I think its going to be a bit of a lottery if you get a place or not now.

    It was clearly stated in initial e-mails that it will definitely start in 2016 and we have a short period (13 weeks - correct me if I am wrong) to complete it.
