    I hope it's 10 questions. But this it too low, I guess the minimum is 15-18.

    9bits and Moh Al-Wab may I ask which certifications do you posses? I'm asking because you said that it was a bit difficult. No offence.

    CCNA R&S, CCNA Security.
    The assessment was not difficult, it just included questions from Linux and Windows. CCNA certificates does not cover those topics.
    I have encountered almost 7 CCNA and CCNA Security questions, the rest are Linux and Windows.

    Still haven't received a response since the email saying you should receive an assesment email by mid August.
    Did apply on the 28th of July though....

    Still nothing on my end. I read somewhere that the mail states that its not a pass or fail test which probably means that if you received the mail in the first place then you are accepted for the program. Is that right?

    No! it's not right. Here is a quote from the e-mail
    "If you pass this assessment, you will qualify for our valued scholarship to earn the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Cyber Ops certification. "

    Which means that this assessment is a pass or fail test. Good luck

    It gave a score report, including the details of every question I got right or wrong (or partial marks), and the correct answer. It then gave a percentage score.

    That's it though. To find out whether I'm in or out, and when the class starts etc, I have to still wait for email from Cisco.

    They said that the scores will also be used to place in appropriate groups. I don't know if that's just "high scorers in this group, middle scorers in this group, low scorers in this group" or whether it's more nuanced and "low in Windows score, low in Network score" etc.

    They also mentioned that they included some more advanced questions to get an idea of skill level and not to expect to get all questions right.

    I got 92%, I thought the assessment was easy and straight forward.
    I did notice them say the results will be in one week, right after the assessment was done and I was looking at my score.

    I guess that they mean the result of whether or not you'll be granted the scholarship.

    I still haven't gotten the email from Cisco with the assessment link. I guess it's not very likely that I will still get it. The F5 key on my keyboard has been taking a beating this week thanks to Cisco..

    Good luck to those that did receive the email!

    I got 18.5/30 on the assessment. I'm not strong on Linux and got most of those wrong. The CCNA questions were not difficult.

    Time will tell.

    Default Assessment Format

    Are the questions in the assessment in multiple choice format? Or is there also fill in blank, drag and drop or simulations? If there are lots of Linux questions, I think I can answer them in multiple choice format but if I have to type them in a simulated terminal window probably not so good. Thanks

    Too early to say that they stopped sending the assessment mails unless all the other we get the "no thanks" mail.

    as long as you have received some emails from them when registered, dont worry you'll get the assessment email, i suppose now they're working through a lot of applicants and maybe are dividing them into groups.

    Another update for the cyber security scholarship:

    Hi there, Martin and many others. Over this evening and into the morning, there will be a couple kinds of emails going out. Those who have applied to the Cybersecurity Scholarship program but have not yet received an assessment should either receive the assessment they've been waiting for or receive an email indicating that there was something in their original registration that did not qualify them to get an assessment. However, if you're in the latter case, you will be given some advice about how to reapply successfully so that you can take the assessment. Also, for those of you who have already received and taken the assessment, there will be communication later this week that informs you of when your test results will be available.


    Hope this helps,

    Gary Pfitzer,

    Content Marketing Manager, Learning@Cisco


    those who did the assessments like me will be contacted this week.

    Wasn't expecting to get an email, but I just got one. I thought I wasn't going to get one because of how much time had passed. If you haven't received an email, hang in there. Good luck!

    Edit: Okay, that test was too simple. I feel like Cisco is up to something.... lol
