      @ajfinance,

      Good news for you is that your workday is done (or at least almost done). I’ve got to walk around the office feeling like crap all day.

      @Sophie Thanks. Band 10 is always tough to deal with I guess. Never been here before. Cleared the previous levels on the first go. This will just make me better.

      @Marc I actually have an interview lined up tomorrow. I’m figuring how to get this out of my head and focus.

      @Zee Since I failed Band 10, I was wondering if there is any procedure for retabulation of results?

      @AJFinance there is a procedure – but I’m not sure if it helps. I’ve never heard of a pass resulting from retabulation…

      I’m not really sure. I guess I failed because I scored less than 50 on the topics with maximum weightage.

      @ajfinance,

      I’m sure that your interviewers will be sympathetic. I mean, everyone can empathize with Band 10. They know that you’ve got the goods.

      @Marc Well, we need to deal with failure. I guess it will take a few days for me to get over this, and I hope the same for you too.
