I took the CISSP-ISSEP, failed. Took it again, failed again. Just got an email saying “woops” you actually passed, there was a grading mistake. My mind went through the following phases
- Disbelief that this could actually happen, when I first got the email I almost ignored it
- Anger and frustration (I wanted to sue them on Judge Judy for the 1 million dollars worth of mental anguish they caused me)
- Happiness and a feeling that weight had been lifted off my shoulders
My ISSEP score was exactly the same both times I took it. Depending on the weight of the questions I failed by either one or two questions. I’m still not exactly sure if I passed both times or just the first time. They did reimburse me for the second exam because I didn’t need to take it.
