I Passed my RTRP Test (PTIN)

Well,  it took about 2 months instead of 2 hours, but I finally got my notice that I PASSED my RTRP test (the test associated with PTINs).

I wish I could tell you want I made, but they don't disclose that.  All the letter tells me is what the passing range is:  at least 350 out of 500 (so basically, if you make better than 70%, you pass).

I thought the result would feel better than it does.  I wanted to know if I made an "A" or a "B".  I am not satisfied with just a "Pass".   

If you want to know your exact score, you have to FAIL.  Then they will disclose to you what your score was.  That doesn't seem quite right to me.

Anyway, I promised to tell everyone the results of my test, and this is the best I can do.  Now, if I just pass the background check, I get to keep my PTIN.   I'll let you  know the result of that too.
