Non-existent at this point

SOA expectation
 
It seems the syllabus sort of exists.

It mentions at the very end "It is expected that online learning support will be available to aid candidate preparation. It will include a sample project and report."

It is expected. Eventually. The first offering is still over a year away. The syllabus is still preliminary. It's not like STAM and LTAM where there's an existing piece of syllabus to base things off of. It'll probably be a little while still.

Am I the only one who freaked out seeing on the syllabus that it is a "FIVE-HOUR PROJECT"? There better be a bathroom break, lunch break and a nap break.

I thought it was meant to be like the modules, where you do it on your own time and submit it? Not in an exam room

For this kind of assignement I feel like 5 hours does not seem very scary. In normal exams, you're constantly juggling between rather short but complex questions which makes it more intense, but I feel like 5 hours to analyze and model the data and make a word doc explaining it is very reasonable

"The Predictive Analytics exam is administered as a five-hour project requiring analysis of a data set in
the context of a business problem and submission of a report. Candidates will have access to a
computer equipped with Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and RStudio."

So it'll be a computer based test that's not multiple choice?

Hey guys, I have question on SRM (which is pre-requisite for Predictive Analytics). If I had all my VEEs, then I don't need to take SRM, is that correct? I failed MLC in Fall 2017, and in my understanding, I will need to retake MLC, do modules, and Predictive Analytics for my ASA. Am I missing anything?
