I failed with a 5, but I'm not worried in the slightest as I didn't give this exam anywhere near my best effort.

If there's one thing about this sitting that is frustrating, it's the fact that...

I think we're all lucky that this exam and Exam C/4 has so much overlap. I think you could argue that a solid 30% of the material is material that we've already had to learn. I'm in a similar boat as...

I didn't think anything related to writing R code would be involved in Exam MAS-I. That's what I meant. When I referred to C, I meant Exam C/4.

Sounds like you're pretty far. I'd say in the 20s? How's Life Con? I studied for MLC twice, but failed both times. Is it just the basics or do they go in depth? If this exam is the same difficulty as...

I'm right there with you as far as C goes. I just passed it in February so I'm hoping this exam is easier because of that. It seems like between these two, whichever one comes first makes the second...

I donít think anyone will know for sure until the results come out and the SOA publishes the report for this sitting. If I had to guess, it would be close to the MFE pass mark which was 70%-72%. That...

I definitely got that question. I think it was an arithmetic Brownian Motion which gave the volatility. I knew what to do with it because I sat for MFE twice, but that as interesting nonetheless.

Going by the formula you just gave, E[X^2] = E[X^3] = E[X^4].
