James Washer (TIA CEO) said he thinks 60-65 but it's just his guess. There were some people on the Fall 2018 LTAM thread that said they thought they scored mid to high 60s and got an 8, which would...

Just an observation from looking at Yufeng's solutions for the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 LTAM MCs:

Fall 2018:
3 star questions: 7
4 star questions: 12
5 star questions: 1

Same. I got some ridiculous number over 20,000 for that part.
Looking at Guo's solution, I would conservatively give myself a 67.

Looking at the MC I got at least 16/20, with a max of 18/20. I can't believe I made a stupid mistake on the NA question (#4).

For the WA, I conservatively score myself a 36. That means the lowest...

I graded myself a 63-64 as conservative estimate, a 69-71 as a moderate estimate, and a 75-77 as a liberal estimate. I really should stop stressing about this and take a break from the AO.

Agree with you that the pass mark would probably be 62-64. If anything, the SOA will think that the general body of LTAM Spring 2019 Candidates did relatively well, and the pass rate will be over...

A 66/96 is equivalent to 69%. The average pass rate for Exam C was 67%. The average pass rate for P and FM are about 70/71%. I find it hard to believe that LTAM's pass mark is almost the same as P or...

Anyone wanna take a guess as to where the pass mark might be? I've been hearing anywhere from as low as 60 to as high as 66.

I didn't like how there was nothing on Lee Carter model/CBD models/Cubic Splines. The only question from that section was the probability of a robot surviving 3 yrs question, which was not bad.

I think the singles digit was a 9 for every answer choice, but every answer choice was something like 2229, 2329, 2429, 2529, and 2629.
