    The DPE is not doing his job correctly. The only reasons that a test may be discontinued are medical (you or the DPE become ill), mechanical (something on the aircraft is broken) or environmental (thunderstorms, high winds, etc.).

    Your lack of knowledge concerning installed equipment should have resulted in a notification of disapproval, not a discontinuance.

    However, to answer your question, the discontinuance is not noted as having failed the test.

    It is interesting that you deleted your original post, in which, you described a lack of knowledge concerning equipment installed in the airplane, but never mentioned a thunderstorm.

    I was updating the post now I can’t see it and really appreciate the answer. I accepted my failure not running away from it. Since its been long time ago that’s why I forgot to mention the TS
