The new End of Module Assessments replaced the EOM exercises from the old FAP. Apparently the SOA intended the EOM Assessments to be like an Interim Assessment divided into mini and manageable parts....

Just submitted my EMA1 on 2/17 with a word count of about 2,600. I'm hoping that isn't too much or too little.

Might start EOM Assessment #1 tomorrow.
Did you guys provide a page of citations at the end of your assessments, or were the citations just in text?

Is this under the old FAP or the new FAP?
If it's under the new FAP, we can't discuss anything.

Why do I have this feeling we're all just waiting for that one person to say they did an EOM assessment before we attempt it ourselves.

How did you get 737? Did you assume the 2nd page had the same # as the 1st page? It doesn't.

I get lucky number 777.

An EL of 7 or 8 is absolutely unnecessary. An EL of 5 is good enough for the MC. Problem is the EL doesn't evaluate how well you're doing on the WA section.

He's just saying if 56 is the pass mark then he's around the fence. No one but the SOA knows what the pass mark is. It's general consensus that a 64 will be good enough to pass no matter what.

I sat for the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 exam.

For the Fall 2018 exam, I self-graded at a 38, and I got a 2.
Because a 2 is 60-70% of the pass mark, the pass mark (assuming the 38 is accurate)...

55 is pretty good with 2 weeks left to go. I took Spring 2019 LTAM and got a 7 (self-graded 66-71).
I wouldn't have even gotten 50 with where I was 2 weeks prior to the exam.

The MC portion will never be as hard as pre-2014 exams, ESPECIALLY the 2012 exam. That thing looked ridiculous.
