I Failed the SPI Exam – Now What? 2560 1707 My Ultrasound Tutor

If you’ve recently failed the SPI exam, you may be wondering where to go from here. Rest assured that your situation is not a lost cause and that we’ve helped many who have failed the SPI exam in the past to reach their goal of becoming a registered ultrasound technologist.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Having Failed the SPI Exam Does Not Make You a Failure

In fact, some who fail the SPI are working technologists who are very good at their jobs. Don’t give in to the idea that you are a bad student, test taker, or ultrasound technologist simply because of one test. There are many reasons that people fail, and we can help you to address those reasons.

Know What to Study

Sometimes, it comes down to knowing what information you should focus on in order to score higher next time. It’s nice that the SPI gives you a list of focus areas of study so you can prepare to take the test again. But what if it seems like the list was just about everything? Does that mean it is hopeless? Not at all!

Making Connections Is the Key

The secret to passing the SPI exam does not involve memorizing lots of facts and figures. The key is to make connections between the information you know so that you can use it to solve problems. The SPI exam challenges your understanding of the science rather than the ability to repeat information.

4 Key Areas of Focus

Because the test requires you to make connections, you have to understand the basic building blocks. Then, you can put that information together to solve problems. Here are the four main areas of focus that will give you the foundation you need:

  • Relationships
  • Resolutions
  • Artifacts
  • Doppler (including relationships)

If you have all of those down, then you should be able to work out the answer to most SPI questions.
