Yup.
That 32 point question threw me for a loop, especially as part of my study triage was a decision not to memorize the Basel I formulæ. What about that 5 pointer with forex and interest rate direction vs magnitude? I still am not certain what they wanted.

At this point, I'm in denial about the exam, so I don't remember what I wrote; I'm hoping that I hit enough key points to get some partial credit.

I don't mind the UK giving a eurocentric exam, but the CAS needs to understand that its candidates really are strongly disadvantaged by using this exam as the USCERA exam.
