Regardless of your certification agency (PADI, NAUI, SSI, etc.), do you recall what grade you made on your first scuba diving exam? The exam you took during your first Open Water or Scuba Diver course that put you on the path to a life of scuba diving.

If your first scuba course was a long time ago, OR it was not graded as a percent...just provide your best guess.

[Choose #5] Everyone passes at dive resorts. But I did work hard, understand the material and pass.

[Choose #5] I think I aced it but that was 1979.

[Choose #2] I think I also missed two. It was in the medical stuff dealing with dive injuries.

[Choose #1] The test was easy as I remember it.

[Choose #2] I think I got two wrong. And the answers were debatable imho. But I always tell people that the written PADI test is about as hard as your driving test.

[Choose #2] As an instructor, I have only had 8 people out of 300+ students that have earned a 100% on their Open Water Diver exam.
