I see 175 names repeated in both lists. If I didn't make a mistake, that means the "normal" pass rate of the exam is 175/361 = 48.5%. The only bias to that would be the candidates who studied for one...

I don't actually believe this is what made a difference. I don't know if it is different for US, but at least for Canada, FV-C was MUCH MORE difficult and time consuming than FV-A. Non-transition...

I assume they simply put a floor of 6 for overall passing candidates, and a ceiling of 5 for overall failing candidates (no ceiling for transition candidates)

I'm surprised to see it's split even for DP or FV candidates!

For your questions, you only get a breakdown by question when you fail, so in your case, you will not be receiving one

I don't see how, if you were doing the regular Advanced exam, you would have passed the overall exam
