Ditto this. One of the prerequisites listed on the FA registration form is "Candidate has met the minimum requirements on the Interim Assessment." It doesn't mention "via self-assessment" like it does for the EOMs. I'm curious how you got around that.

This was my second attempt. First time they gave me tasks 2 and 6 but I reworked most of the tasks.

Any chance they pick back up tomorrow morning or later tonight to finish the queue? Or are they done for the next few weeks?

So... why do they only give 4 days to complete the FA if they just have you fix your submission when you fail? Doesn't that mean people who retake it have unlimited time because they can just figure it out and then pay for it when they are ready to submit it? So basically first-time 4 day takers are graded alongside people with infinite time who already have the assignment? And the only difference is the amount of money spent? First-time takers are just at a severe disadvantage?

Cool.

Also if I took $1,200 from someone to take an exam I'd definitely wait several months ignoring it, grade it in one day with a month's worth of submissions without reading all of it, pretend a second grader saw it, tell them they failed without reasons and say that if they fail again I'll tell them why for $250.

If this isn't professional I just don't know what is guys.
