    @ifex No reason to feel bad. Can't compare yourself to some of us who have been in IT forever. Take it one step at a time, challenge yourself, keep learning, keep momentum going, and you'll prevail.

    I took my assessment 11 days ago, and still waiting for the reply.
    Has anyone heard back from Cisco?

    We will all be waiting awhile I would guess.

    I think the assessment is to do two things:

    1. Make sure that people have a VERY basic understanding as stipulated in the program criteria - how successful would the low scorers actually be?
    2. To make sure that people coming into the program have the most likely shot to succeed.

    This is the same reason some colleges have close to a 100% graduation rate. Not because they are amazing at turning around low grade students into high grade student. They are very picky with who they let in.

    Maybe I'm wrong ... but I would think the only people that get "cut" based on assessment would be those who score very low. I am only basing this on what Cisco has already told us.

    Hello friends,

    23.6/30 here. I was aiming for 80.00 line but unfortunately it wasn't the case this time...but despite all of this some of you folks really made my smile show up through your messages and speculations.

    Also, I've noticed I can take another attempt at the exam quiz, is this true for you also? Does it count?

    Wish you good luck!

    Hello Friend:

    28/30 in 12mins -- Cisco will pick the fastest, top scores first. If you allow the best to get the certs first it will give the image that the cert has value.
    (my conclusion) Then more SOCs will request that their analyst need Cyber Ops Cert, Cisco makes more money and the continuation of the machine... well as long as one of ya'll don't put a wrench in the machine... (don't search "cotton candy kid")

    Just logged into my account and see they put up the following information

    "ALERT: We are in the process of removing users who have previously completed the assessment. If you have already completed the assessment you do not need to retake the assessment, your original results are the only ones which will be counted."

    It does bother me a little bit that it shows I have an assessment to do and I cannot see my previous completed assessment though...

    I took my assessment on September 6th, scored a 79.6%. I just received an email stating a new Cisco Cyber Security account has been created. Has anyone else received this?

    Edit:
    Never mind, that's the same site the assessment was on, I was hoping it was a good sign lol

    if you received a email like in the link below, then it seems to be a scam.

    Yes, it is just like that one. Not a scam though. It sends you to the same website the assessment was on. I read a post on reddit that a few people received this and emailed cisco. They received this response:

    We aplogize, this email was generated in error. Your user access was revoked after you completed the assessment. Please disregard! You will hear fro mCisco within 1-2 weeks with an update on the scholarship program.
    Thank you,
    Sabrina

    Seems they were revoking access and somehow it auto generated some emails.

    I think they have some troubles with their exam system.

    1. Some questions in the quiz were not making any sense.

    2. A friend of mine had the same "opportunity" to take the exam quiz again, he did it and noticed a change in one question that was not making any sense in his previously attempt. Although they have put that ALERT message, I have a strange feeling that they will not have the access to see if a user took the exam again.

    2. Some received the email that was telling them to log into a new account.

    3. Now, they said that we will no longer be able to access the account, but for me is still working.

    quote from the email that i got recently

    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.

    There's obviously a lot of demand. The question now is: What results are they looking for?

    Also, how many people do you guys think have signed up for this? I think the cap was 10,000 people if IRC.

    Im probably out of the running. Oh well, I will have returned from my GPEN course then and be focusing on that exam. Good luck to those who get selected. I need something OS/Cisco related after that to meet DOD requirements.
