It's okay, I'll have the exam 6 thread to practice before I get to the FCAS exams. By then I'll be putting up some big numbers.

This is very reassuring. I'm tied for top posts in the exam 5 thread, so I must have passed. I think I have a new exam strategy going forward.

This is reassuring. I did under 100 hours for each prelim and just barely broke the 100 mark for 5.. I was worried my poor work ethic will make 6 unpassable for me, but this gives me hope.

Yeah, it seems most people found it more difficult. I was crushing the 2015-2017 ones under exam conditions but don't feel too confident about this one.

You don't get to send yourself back your answer sheet, just the exam booklet. Man, now I'm stressing out about small things I might have forgotten to do. December needs to hurry up and get here.

Usually it's around 70%, so 0.7*55 = 38.5.

Depending on how many other dumb mistakes I made and how nice they were on partial credit I think I got somewhere in the 42-50 range.
