Fall 2018 MC#9 and Spring 2019 MC#9 were both DII questions. Spring 2019 WA #2 was a 10 point question on DII.

Fall 2018 MC#1 was a relatively easy CCRC question.

On the Spring 2019 WA #2...

Exam sittings should never fill up. If there are an unusually large number of people taking LTAM, they may use a larger conference room.

Starting with Spring 2019 LTAM sitting, they changed the tables to 100% size. I think they screwed up for Fall 2018.

Got a 7. I graded myself in the low 70s so I'm guessing the pass mark must have been higher than last sitting's.

I would certainly do STAM. PA is still a relatively new exam and I heard the first sitting was a disaster. Even though STAM is new as well, I'm sure the SOA recycles questions from Exam C on the test.

Once we get our scores then we can try to guess the pass mark. I self-graded my Fall 2018 LTAM exam with a maximum possible 38/96. That was a 2 (60-70% of pass mark).

Only 753 passed the Fall LTAM exam but looks like about 1070ish people passed Spring LTAM. Probably means a higher than average pass rate.

And yes, I passed too!

And yes, if...
