The scoring in the CCIE lab is done on a per task basis and not a per section basis.  If you do not pass the lab you will receive a breakdown of how you did by section (i.e. IGP, Multicast, etc) but they will not give you a breakdown on a task by task basis.  The logic behind this is that the CCIE exam is designed to be a testing tool and not a learning tool.

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for this doc!
    Something I’ve heard (a couple of times so far) regarding the way the lab is scored.. Is it true that the lab is scored by an automated script instead of by the proctor (or any person)?
    If so, do you know the way (aprox) the script scores you? (by checking reachability, issuing show commands, checking the running-config)
