SIE Exam

I recently just took the SIE exam and score was a 62. The firm preferred me to pass it by June 1st after accepting offer in late April. I didn't have adequate study time until May 10th due to graduation. Though I don't officially start until July, how will will this be viewed by my managers as I prepare to retake it ?

Just try your best to pass it the next time. I think it's fine. Your manager did not hire you because you can pass some useless (but mandatory) exam.. 

Hate to tell you this: no one cares whether you had adequate study time or not, Wall Street only cares about result - just pass it.
