What total score do you think you will get on this exam out of 100. For each problem, determine a worst case score and a best case score based on how the graders will probably grade your exam (not based on what you feel you deserve). Then add the total worst case scores and best case scores to get a total worst case score and a total best case score.

Mine:

Worst case: 45 pts (how I get my biased estimate on the pass mark!)
Best case: 54 pts

Also, indicate how many points you think you will get on #10 and whether you converted the spot prices to contract prices before doing the problem.

Mine:

0 points (didn't do the problem at all).

Since the SOA is hardly ever rational, I'm going to give myself:

Minimum: 0 pts.
Maximum: 100 pts.

We don't even know the first thing about how they grade, how can you figure out a best and worst case scenario with a range of 9 pts? And how can you even begin to remember your answers over a month after the exam?

ABCD, I graded your exam and you actually got -27 pts! You did awful! Actually, before you do this exercise, look at other of my posts to see how the exams are really graded. You don't get pts/100. It's more complicated than that. If you weren't aware of this, then it doesn't bode well for you on your ficticious score.

Smarty Pants, we get it. It may not be the exact way the SOA grades exams but that doesn't mean we can't use it as a fair gauge.

My high is 69 and my low is 60.

On number 10, I gave myself a 3. This was based on answering part a only. By 3, I mean 3 out of 10 (not out of 6).

Thanks TO for understanding what I am trying to accomplish here.

And for you other two, I guess I should tell you what I know from past experience. If you start with the wrong formula and go through the motions showing you understand the concepts, you still only get about one point on the problem (the SOA does not give hardly any partial credit if you start with the wrong formula (even if it is only slightly wrong).

If you have taken the written exams enough, you can get an idea of how they scored your exam when you get your failing "slips" of scores on each problem.

I should also add that for list problems, you don't get hardly any credit for creative writing. They only give you credit for putting down list items that are part of the list they are asking for.

smarty pants
06-11-2004, 03:28 PM
Notice on all those failing slips you've gotten, there is no total points out of 100. Case in point. I realize you can do whatever you want to make you feel better. Why don't you guess how many gumbatrons the Society will award you out of 172. Then use that as a guage for your pretend score out of 100, then you can use that as a guage for your real, unrelated actual failing score. Isn't it simpler just to ask, "Do you think you passed or not?" Or, just wait and find out, guessing won't change anything. It's actuaries like you that are difficult in working with on the job. You get so wrapped up in "exactness" and forecasting, you lose sight that it's a wasted exercise and no more accurate than guessing your score of 0-10. Since I am not your mommy and daddy, I can't tell you what to do, nor do I. I'm just pointing out your error.

06-11-2004, 04:49 PM
I would contend that it is actuaries like you, Smarty Pants, that give us a bad name. You adhere stricly to the rules and can not think outside of the box to solve a problem. I believe the only error in this discussion is your desire for absolute conformity! Everyone, if you don't have an opinion (or problem solving technique) identical to Smarty Pants', then shut up!

PS The following is a quote from Smarty Pants in 2001 from the Course 6 forum:

"Try to read the material at least twice. I try to memorize the index of each book, then quiz myself on the page numbers. On the exam I just tell the graders what page the answers are in the book. I seem to do fine, they let me take these exams over as many times as I wish."

It seems to me Smarty Pants that you did not pass course 6 until 2003, which means you sat for it at least 3 times. Maybe YOU should go back and look at all of your failing slips to confirm your theory.

Sorry bud, I became an ASA in January 2003. Nice try though detective. Your retrieval of an out of context quote left a lot of proof to be desired. Just because I posted in the C6 forum, doesn't mean I haven't passed C6, just that I care enough about you mindless tards to help you understand the grading system. My bad. You're right, it's people like me, who actually understand how things work and try to communicate that to the ignorant, are who give actuaries a bad name. Spare me the posting telling me that exam results are out already too. I'm sure you've done that once or twice.

I have much better things to be doing than to bicker with someone that loves to misread people. If you actually read my previous post, I mentioned you did pass course 6. I was merely pointing out that it took you more than one attempt.

PS I have yet to fail course 6 which is something you can not say.

I just did some detective work myself by sifting through some of smarty pants's prior posts, and found that he has been fighting this battle -- explaining how the SOA grades the exams to us mindless tards -- for quite some time now. (It seems he has nothing better to do with his life.) For example, this post (http://actuary.ca/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=176147#176147) is from way back in December 2002. In it, he also mentions that he failed course 5 twice and passed course 6 on his second try, so it would appear that smarty pants has received his fair share of failing slips over the years.

Now, back to the topic at hand. Here's my best- and worst-case estimates:

Best-case scenario: 53/100 (or 91 gumbatrons out of 172)
Worst-case scenario: 43/100 (or 74 gumbatrons out of 172)

You moron, if you knew how to read, you'd know I failed C5 once, and C6 once. I have passed my last 5 exams and you couldn't carry my jock. My point is still clear and correct. You are wrong. Plain. Simple. You and abcd can go circle jerk around all you want, but quit misquoting me. Your ignorance shines. You can attempt to insult me all you want but I've still gotten through the exams well under the average, through more adversity than you can imagine. How's your glass house anyway? You've gotten off subject too many times and are awful at looking up facts in prior posts. I can publish an Actex pop-up book if you like so it is easier for you to understand.

06-12-2004, 01:56 PM
And you are also wrong in saying that you were only trying to point out that I took more than one attempt. You said "at least 3 times". I didn't have to go far for that research. I just had to scroll up a few posts. Nice try. Considering the pass rates were well under 50% for each of C5 &amp; C6 the TWO times I took each, I'm still above average, so I'm really torn up inside. Owwwieeee! Zinga!

Boy, is my face red. Where's that red-faced emoticon so that I can show everyone just how I'm feeling inside at this very moment. Ah, here it is: :oops:

You were in a course 5 thread when you said "the first two times I failed," so I assumed that you were referring to course 5, not course 5 and 6. Natural mistake, wouldn't you say smarty pants? I don't think it has anything to do with my reading ability.

So you're above average. Good for you. Here's a news flash for you: I don't give a rat's ass. It's your smartass attitude I don't care for. I know, I know -- you have to live up to your username. Truth in advertising; that's your motto. However, you are aware that you can change your username, aren't you? I was thinking something along the lines of, oh, I don't know, "harmless kitten"? A bit effeminate, I know. But try it out, it might grow on you.

06-14-2004, 01:09 PM
Why all the hate?

I think it'd be interesting for people to put their best case and worst case scenario on a scale of zero to one hundred, then we can all agree on how the scores will translate to the 0 through 10 score that the SOA reports to us. Then we can see, when exams come out, how wrong everyone is, and how pointless the whole exercise turned out to be.

On a regular exam you might be able to gain some insight from guessing your score, but not the Course 6 2004 exam.

I don't mind comments about how ridiculous this exercise sounds. Smarty Pants was the first one to throw mud around (in his second post). That's how this thread got corrupted in the first place.

Underdog, if people want me to stop, then quit adding fuel to the fire. My comments are so excentric, you can't possibly expect them to be 100% my true feelings can you? It just makes those who get fired up by it look foolish.

Still, after all doubters and offendees, one fact still remains. There is NO such thing as points/100. No matter how much people try to change the subject, someone always overlooks it. Maybe that's why I enjoy pointing it out so much. It's just something that people can't get over. It won't ever change. Every sitting some chump who wants to give themselves a glimmer of hope to make up for the fact they didnt' study enough, will ask, "how many points will it take to pass that exam? I have a low of 40 and hight of 89. Does that mean I pass?" Come on. Get with the program. Now I'll just sit back and wait for a response from someone wanting to comment on my personality, ignoring the fact that I'm right!

By the way, there's no reason for me to quit while I'm ahead. I'm ahead for a reason!

smarty pants,

I will venture that you've been on this planet long enough to have interacted with a fair number of human beings over the years, and therefore know a little something about human nature.

There is a term for what we are doing here. It's called "obsessing." It's what human beings do. This phenomena was likely present when the SOA administered its first exam, and will remain long after your bones have dissolved into the ground. Until the SOA decides to dumb down the exams to the point where studying 500 hours will get you something more than a 50-50 shot of passing, people will continue to obsess about them. It's the way of the world, my friend. Either you realize that, and let it go, or continue on with your feeble attempt to change the world.

You are also guilty of having obsessed about the exams long after they were over, smarty pants. For example, in this thread (http://actuary.ca/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=7331&highlight=#7331) you were obsessing about course 5 after the Fall 2001 session, and in this thread (http://actuary.ca/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=96088&highlight=#96088) you are guilty of what WE are attempting to do here: estimate our score out of 100. And here's a link (http://actuary.ca/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=79458&highlight=#79458) where you (sigh) explain how the SOA grades the exams to a new audience, only to be told by a poster named cartman that that's not how it's done. You then accuse cartman of being wrong, at which point cartman says that he's been grading exams for 6+ years, so he knows a thing or two when it comes to grading exams. The funny thing is, the middle link above (where you estimate your score out of 100) came AFTER the last link (where you explain how the exams are graded, and that it's pointless to estimate your score out of 100). So it would appear that your preachings have even failed at converting yourself into a believer. What hope, then, I ask you, do you have of converting us?

smarty pants
06-15-2004, 12:27 PM
I could care less about you, personally. You have no hope in converting because you can't see the forest throught the trees. Cartman, my friend, is a fake exam grader on this forum. I'll trust the real life exam graders that I've personally talked to, including Carmody. Geez, do you believe everything in this forum as Gospel? You probably rush to see if grades come out every time some fake posts it, hours or days before the scheduled release. Your proof (links) of research are out of context. I pointed out that ONE time I tried the estimating pts/100 and I found out it was crap. So bite me moron. You've proved nothing. I even mentioned 2 posts below that how the exams are graded. How you made it this far in exams I don't know, nor do I care. You're an idiot. Keep researching, that will change many facts about how exams are graded. You STILL can't accept it and you STILL miss the point. You are pointless rambling embodies your pointless being. No amount of research will prove me wrong in how the exams are graded, unless you rely on the Cartman's in this forum. Concrete proof right there man.

J-Man
06-15-2004, 12:41 PM
From my point of view, they should write "12 minutes" instead of "4 points" if that's what "points" means. They lead us into trying to figure out how many points out of 100 we got by implying that this is how the exam is graded. The front cover clearly states how many points you can get in that session. Has the SOA ever released a Carmody-like key? I know they do it that way, but it is natural to ask what the score out of 100 is. They lead you to it. And it is something that you can get a handle on, since there is no way to know the aggregate score unless you are on the committee.

Which brings me to my next points. I'm glad you know who Underdog is. I'm sorry I'm so "excentric." Best wishes. I will henceforth adhere to the purpose of this thread.

smarty pants
06-15-2004, 12:57 PM
Thanks. I agree, it doesn't make sense to say a questions is "worth" 4 points, but not grade it that way. That's why it's important for people to know it. THE reason that I failed each one ONCE is because I didn't understand how the exam was graded. Not necessarily all point-related stuff, but content, major/minor bullet points, etc. I just have a sarcastic way of putting everything, for my own (and sometimes others) enjoyment.

dogbert
06-16-2004, 09:05 AM

If you want to know how each question is graded, get your FSA and join a committee and grade/write exam questions.

To know how the entire exam is handled and a pass mark determined, you need to move up to the vice-chair or higher level. No grader is part of that process. A grader only sees the question they are working on, not the exam in its entirety.

Just because you have talked to a grader doesn't mean you are getting correct information for the entire exam. As stated before, the method described by smarty pants may have some pieces of information that is true (i.e. questions each have their own grading outline/scoring), the described manner in which things are aggregated is not true.

Take it from someone who knows. (btw, I don't recall seeing Carmody as a vice-chair, chair of course 5 or 6 ever, I could be wrong, just going from memory)

smarty pants
06-16-2004, 09:32 AM
I'm not a hater. But I do hate sometimes, like people who spell like "ur wif dis n dat...) Is that to represent a speach impediment? I'm sarcastic, and I can't let ignorance continue, so I speak. And I really don't think that much of myself, but I'm not going to be questioned by ignorance.

Dogbert, why don't you have 100 failing C5 or C6 people submit their scores per question, and compile a database like Carmody, and you will see that the overall weighted average score will not necessarily correspond to the same grade. For example, someone could have a weighted average of 4.8 and get a 4, but someone else could have a 4.7 and get a 5. That, right there, should be an indication that there is no pure weighted average or score/100. Your vice chair comments are far fetched. True, some graders only are in it for their trip to Disney, but others are quite knowledgeable. I never said Carmody knows EXACTLY how they're scored, only that it is not pts/100. I don't know how else to phrase this. It's like I'm talking, but you're not listening. Some of you need to go back a few years and do some reading comprehension. None of your arguments hold water. I'm sorry, was that last comment to mean? I hope the truth doesn't hurt everyone's fragile feelings so much.

wooHoo
06-16-2004, 09:55 AM
Caromody said that he thought that on the failing score report you get a rounded score per question, but when they aggregate the questions, they use a fractional score.

abcd

From a good friend who is at one of the highest levels of the EESCC:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Each essay question has a grading outline with points. Each question is scored based on the grading outline. Since it easier to work with integers instead of fractions, the grading outline points will add up to some number much greater than the point value displayed for the question on the exam. The scoring points are then converted to question points (that is, the points that show on the exam next to the questions). There are a few rules used to convert the points so the conversion is not a straight linear conversion.

Since the grading outline contains all possible items that could score points it is rare for anyone to get all the grading outline points. However, this does not mean that it is rare for someone to get the full points on a question. That is far from the reality. A good, solid, reasonably complete answer will likely score most or all of the question points.

As you state each person gets a score for each question relative to the number of points shown on the exam for that question.

The question points for each candidate are added together. The pass mark is set based on these totals. In your example, the pass mark would be points out of 100 possible."

You can refute this all you want. Trust me. This is from the "top".

You guys are too smart for me. I tried to prove you wrong but your evidence is just too good. Calling me names, proof of talking to someone who must not be too sure of himself (or herself) if you're afraid I'll "convert" them, and the support of the whole 2 other idgets that agree with you. I'm speechless. Well, I'm going to go work now, can you guys go uncover some more mysteries in the midst of your data work. Get back to me when you find out your score out of 100. Even after all of this, and you still think you're right, you still DON'T ever find it out, so what is the freaking point? I can assure you that your estimate of a score on each problem won't be close on at least 25% of the exam. There have been some problems in the past where out of the 100+ responses of failers to Carmody's exam score poll, the highest score was a 2. Now, are you telling me that a lot of the people in that pool didn't think they got an 8 or 10, only to find out that they weren't even in the same ballpark? Go ahead and predict a range of 60-69, nobody will ever prove you DID get it, right?

Before reading your other posts, I would have to say you're a smart one. After reading a few of your other posts, I don't know what to think anymore.

If you get 46, you should pass though! I just wish I could guarantee that like I can my source on how the pass mark will be a number out of 100.

That's right, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, or perhaps 95.5 or 96 on this one.

smarty pants
06-21-2004, 10:37 PM
Yep, 46 passes, but 47-55 fails, 56-61 passes, 62 fails if you didn't get at least a D in an accredited actuarial school, and all other scores 63 and above pass, except 77. This is as scientific as it gets because I know a reliable source who is a friend of a friend's uncle's dogwalker's nurse. So if it helps, give yourself a range of how you did. This will even make you feel better because broadening the range will assure you to possibly hit one of these passing ranges. If you don't like your score, go back on how you graded yourself and give yourself a couple more points, it will affect your final actual score! Go try this at home kids!

You keep telling yourself that or did you go ask Carmody for a reason why you failed (your solution to everything...I'd think he was your wife or something :o ). Maybe I should call up Mike and ask why the Cubs lost today.

And you're right about the exams not being graded on a pts\100 basis. Your grade is based on your total marks and how well you demonstrated you knew the material.

You keep telling yourself that or did you go ask Carmody for a reason why you failed (your solution to everything...I'd think he was your wife or something :o ). Maybe I should call up Mike and ask why the Cubs lost today.

Except they didn't lose!

What if - in answering the relative return analysis and strategic frontier analysis last May - the student mixed up their answers? That is, described RRAnalysis as SFrontier analysis, and vice versa? Is that a zero? Partial credit? ;-)

I did the same thing too! I think they're going to give us a zero because we didn't answer the questions given. I've asked around and most people say a partial credit is more likely, but I think they were just saying that so that I won't think too much about it (it didn't work because for about a week, I just keep thinking about this question over and over again).

What is worse, I cannot recall whether I actually did it.......I think I did, but I'm not too sure.......I hadn't thought about the exam for some time, but seeing the lower-level exam grades released last Friday reactivated my thinking!! Probably didn't make it to the 6-level, but the thought of the possibility is agonizing! Soon enough, soon enough......Friday....

I also switched them. I think that if they start grading and realize that a lot of people did that, they will come up with some kind of partial credit scheme. Then again, that would be logical.

I did the same thing. Im sure we'll get partial credit, especially since I think there are alot of people who had no clue on this one.

Heck, I didn't even answer that one, because I had less than a clue.

Why waste time answering a question where your answer is likely to be "Buh? Buh." Heck, if I answered it, I bet they'd give me negative points if they could.

Hate to be the pessimist, but why would they give you credit for the wrong answer? That is like on a history exam giving credit for saying the axis in WW2 was the US, France, England, Russia, etc... and the allies were Germany, Italy, and Japan. It is clearly wrong. I wouldn't try to convince yourself otherwise.

abcd, I asked Mike and he said that since you have slept with everyone from the EESCC, you could explain everything, all knowledgeable one.

Dinosaur, I don't need someone else to tell me why I failed. It's not that difficult when you try one method and fail, then try a new method and pass with flying colors. You're retarded if you can't make those same distinctions in evaluating your own test-taking skills. Punk.

How could you put anyone after yourself on this "kill list" of yours? Would you haunt them to death?

I should say that I am uninterested in "the winner" or the competitive elements of your pissing contest. You see, the problem with pissing contests is that every player is left soaked and standing in a puddle of foreign urine.

My gripe: The strident nonsense in our neighborhood is getting a little old.............
