What Should You Do If You Fail Leapforce or Lionbridge Exam Twice and How to Re-Apply?

If you fail the exam the second time, Leapforce will not allow you to retake it a third time. In this case I would advise that you apply to another vendor like Lionbridge (or vice versa). 

Option 1: re-apply from your own PC 

Before proceeding with application you will need to clean your devices from the data left from unsuccessful exams.

  1. Sign out all Gmails associated with your unsuccessful attempts (make a complete sign out on a laptop, PC and your smartphone) and to be on the safe side, re-install your chrome browser on your PC;
  2. A new IP address will be required. You may use a residential VPN to change your IP address. Do not use normal VPN if you are going to apply for Lionbridge, use only a residential VPN. It is VERY easy to know if you are using a regular VPN. As an option you may change your Internet provider or if you have a dynamic IP address then no action is required at this stage;
  3. Create new gmail;
  4. Proceed with application as normal.Once you have started the application and qualification process, I recommend you keep the same IP address during the whole process. If you need to, later on you may change your IP as many times you want.

Note: I would like to point out that Lionbridge is very strict in terms of IP address. The vendor prefers to deal with applicants who have a residential IP address, but it depends on your country. 

Option 2: re-application on behalf of another person the same vendor is possible

Use someone else’s PC to apply and move the account to your PC once you complete the qualification process. 

Note: Before proceeding with registration, make sure that you use a new Gmail account which previously was not used for application process.

Note: It is very important that when you filling out the application and answering the application questions, you must indicate that you have never applied/worked the search engine evaluator position before with another company. Answering yes to this question will automatically disqualify you.  

Lionbridge Unsuccessful Application

There might be many reasons for the rejection of your application. These are some of the reasons: 

It might be possible that your CV does not meet Lionbridge standards. Lionbridge is very selective in terms of quality of CVs of applicants in India and other developing countries.Make sure that you CV looks professional and accurate and there are no gaps in your experience.  

Your IP address might be suspicious, or does not meet Lionbridge requirement. If you have a dynamic IP address (an IP which changes each time you connect to the Internet) – you will be rejected for sure. Make sure that you have static IP address. One way to check is to ask your internet service provider.  

Someone is using the same IP address for a rating project (in the case of sharing an Internet network connection), make sure that your IP address is unique. 

And finally, try to arrange new IP addresses, update your CV, create new Gmails, and apply one more time. If possible you might need to find a person you can trust, like a friend or family member, and apply on behalf of them. It could be a possibility that your name is blacklisted in the vendor database.  

Unable to enter IP address into the Lionbridge exam

It can be possible that the vendor was unable to enter your IP into exam because you have dynamic IP address. It might be very risky to have this type of IP address because it means that many people have the same shared IP address. Some internet service providers put a group of customers on the same IP address behind a NAT. This could be a problem and may lead to getting flagged for multiple accounts being used on the same platform such as raterhub.

You Failed the Leapforce (Raterlabs) or Lionbridge Exam – Now What?

Many people fail the Yukon exam at their first attempt because they don’t fully understand the Leapforce way of thinking, and you’ve only got a week to study the 164 page guide. Many people fail the first time because this is not an easy exam.  Leapforce and Lionbridge are aware of this fact, and even mention in the welcome email that many people fail the test. In one week after an unsuccessful attempt,  you will get the second and last chance to re-take the exam. You will have to go through all parts of the exam again, practical tasks in part 2 (Page Quality) and part 3 (Send to Device) will be different from those you had on your first exam, although there may be a few tasks that come from previous exam.

Why do people fail the Leapforce and Lionbridge qualification exams?

Lack of effort and sufficient preparation

The most common reason that people fail the Leapforce exam, is that some candidates think that they may get lucky and pass the exam without proper studying, or you may think you know enough about the internet or have good search skills. Be aware that all parts of exam are designed in a way to assess your ability to understand and apply rating concepts and rules based on a 164 page guide. Its not possible to demonstrate the knowledge of these guidelines without investing a significant amount of effort within the one week they give you to study for the exam. If you don’t at least study the guide, or go over it a couple times, you will most likely fail the theoretical part (part 1) of the exam.

Poor time management

One of the common reasons for unsuccessful attempt to pass the exam is poor time management. People do exam preparation and taking all 3 parts within 1-2 days. This strategy in many cases leads to exam failure, because the exam requires lots of concentration and attention to details…Thus plan your exam carefully so you have enough time for studying the material and taking the exam without rushing. Basically, don’t wait till the last minute.

Inappropriate understanding and/or implementation of rating rules and concepts

Have you failed the Leapforce or Lionbridge exams after carefully studying for them? Don’t worry, a lot of people have. Even people with experience in Search Engine Optimization, or even experience in taking exams have failed this test. In fact it is the first thing that Leapforce mentions before you get the exam. That it is very difficult and many fail. If you have failed, it is most likely you misunderstood the rating concepts and/or applied them in a wrong way; e.g. used personal judgment/common sense, or did not pay attention to details where it was required (e.g. user location for local queries). In this case I recommend you get assistance from an expert, such as myself.
