Effective October 1, 2023, the examinations will be referenced to the
2023 NEC Code Book
If you are retaking the exam or if you are planning on taking it over and over until you pass, you should read this.
Retaking the exam will put you in a different position and you might get lucky and get some of the first questions you have in the first test this next time. So that's the good news.

We all know that the exam is not going to be same for everyone every time. It's always going to be a little bit different. PSI exams, the exam proctor, and the state have a pool of questions and they've got every question identified as to how hard it is or how many people get it right or wrong.
So they give you some percentage of a mix of each one of those out of each category and they just dump it in a test every every time. In fact your test version doesn't even exist until the night before your test and they load it onto the server to have it ready for you.
There are some six thousand or seven thousand questions in the pool. They are just randomly populated each time. But there are some core questions that they seem to ask all the time.
I don't know if those are just the questions they use to verify that you're alive and that you're not cheating or something.
So if you retake the exam, you might end up with a percentage that'll be either the same as before or pretty close to what you had before. But you can count on the actual questions to vary.
Hope this helps !
