I'm not sure if I understand the question correctly but by "inflation" do you mean just continuous changes that occur over time? If so, then we do account for such changes through "premium trend."

Not sure if this was discussed a few pages ahead but how likely do you guys think this will get pushed?
Has CAS ever pushed or flat out cancelled a sitting historically?

They did this past sitting dirty haha.
If they had made the pass rate closer to 40% like they did in the past than perhaps my 5 would have been a 6.

Looking at the letter showing the score ranges for each question, that leads me to believe if your overall score range includes the pass mark, then you pass.
