CTFL Examination

Friday, February 22, 2013

i was one of the thirty candidates chosen to take the CTFL Examination...
*CTFL stands for Certified Tester Foundation Level*
which is under the Software Testing and Maintenance course i took during the previous semester...
this is my very first certification examination in my life...
so i was really hoping that i could pass this test and get my very first certified certification...

so like i said this exam thingy happened in my previous semester...
and i was chosen to take this exam...
and this exam takes place during the very first week of this new semester...
where i have to attend their training for the whole week until the exam day itself...
so i was not able to make myself to attend any classes for the whole week...
the training starts from Monday until Thursday from 8am until 5pm EVERYDAY..><
 

we were given these four books from ISTQB to study for the whole week...
*ISTQB stands for International Software Testing Qualification Board*
one is the Textbook where we actually had to swallow everything in there before the exam...
then another thinner Reference Book 1 which contains a simpler version of notes from the Textbook...
Reference Book 2 which contains all the exercises...
whereby we have to finish all of them based on the instructions given by our trainer...
and the thinnest book would be all the sample questions from the previous years...
which also need to be completed upon further instructions by the trainer...

it was indeed the most tiring week of all...
because all we face everyday are the same books..same trainer..same training venue...
and the tiring part was when you still have to study at night on what you learned during the day...
because the trainer will give a creepy Q&A session before he proceeds with the new chapter..><
so these are the things lying on my table every night for the first week of the semester...

 and Thursday night was indeed the most torturing night...
because we need to struggle to study all the chapters for the exam on the next morning...
i studied till 3am and woke up again at 8am this morning to do all the exercises for final revision...

so i was back in the library again at 11am this morning for registration...
and the exam started at 11.30am sharp...
i think this exam runs in a rather P&C way...
because we need to put our answer sheets and the question papers and rule sheets...
 into an envelope and seal it back before handling over to the proctor...

the CTFL Examination has finally comes to an end...
i am not putting much hope that i will pass this exam...
but i can say that i already tried my very best to answer the questions...
and still hoping to get this certification...
because it can at least back me up into MSTB for internship...

all the best to me..:)
