Warning! Discrimination in CS exam

Discrimination and racism is widely prevalent, passing step 2 CS looks a remote possibility for me.

There's no discrimination in CS. They will not discriminate against your look or accent.
Hundreds and thousands of people (from your ethnicity) have passed the exam.
If you have very poor English language and you fail the exam then that does not mean this is discrimination!

Im sorry to hear that u felt this way. My experience at CS was very professional and fair.

have u got the result already? there are many reasons why u may not pass, but racism is definitely the last one to consider!

They have raised the bars which is a good thing, even though it means more studying and commitment from us. But I don't think racism is an issue.

Everyone there is really respectful and professional and so the SP's I have to say.

So did you or did you not pass? did u get a look at ur performance analysis ?

maybe that will give u some clues about which areas of the exam u need to concentrate on.
