I second this as well. I'm also curious as to why we re-level the data and don't quite understand the purpose of this at all.

Just FYI to all the instructors who plan on solving the exam (and somebody correct me if I'm wrong): IIRC, there was an error on WA #4c Part III. Instead of 8.09, the number should be 8.02. I do...

Only the IA and FA are hard, but the module exercises are a joke. I find the modules pretty silly because 90% of the slides are irrelevant to the End of Module (EOM) exercise. However, do note that...

It's usually 2 or 3 weeks after the exam. I'd expect something by Mid-May. After it's released, James Washer from TIA and other instructors solves it and posts their solutions here.

I agree with this as well. After the exam, at least half the people in the room were complaining how bad it was. But to me, most seemed like first-time takers. I can also say that I felt this exam...

What I did was I tallied my A B C D E's and picked whatever was lowest. Happened to be A in my case, and 1 of my 2 guesses were right. I probably got lucky though lol.

100% agreed. WA #6 was a free 10 points. I thought WA #3 was the hardest, but thankfully that one was only worth 8 points.

I thought WA 3 was also pretty difficult, probably only got 4/8 points on it. I would also say I'm scoring around a 75 conservatively. I think the pass mark is 62-64. My friend scored a 10 on this...

You need to attend the APC. They send a link to the application a few days after the APC. If you didn't receive an email, you can always contact the SOA.
