This is a blog post about how I failed my first attempt at the IACC exit assessment in the summer of 2022. It’ll cover:
- What went wrong
- How you can potentially avoid this
- How to prepare for a resit
Most of the advice in this blog I received from meeting with senior scientists, others who had failed and my wider support network. This post is a thank you to those people and I hope sharing the advice they gave me is useful to you. I also want this blog to show you that failing is something that is a normal and natural part of life, which has happened to everyone you know and will happen to you too, perhaps even at the most pivotal part of your career to date.
