The company I interned at had a meeting on your last day to let you know whether they would extend a full time offer to you. I ended up getting an offer which I later declined.

I almost gave up until someone relayed this information to me. It took me 8 months to submit 1 and 2, and then 6 weeks to submit the rest. One of the worst months of my life. Glad itís over!

Not sure if everyone knows, but you can find out your grade earlier by looking at the submission page in the EOM exercise link. That is usually shown 12-24 hours before it shows up on the transcript.

I understand there are plenty of people who go to the APC without knowing. However, and I might be biased, it seems silly to have your FA and IA graded and not know cause of a random EOM exercise.

Especially when they have been seemingly autopassing everyone in the last 3 months. Why stop now for the handful of students who are only waiting on regular module results?

Should I fail, I'll blame Russia for hacking the SOA grading databases. And then probably demand a recount.

ASM was a great source to learn and master the material. I didn't use ADAPT nearly as much as I did for other prelims, but it certainly helped for the multiple choice section.
