??? If you mean actual Exam P questions, the rules are that they cannot be revealed, anywhere.

It was super hard. Way harder than TIA exam 4 in which I scored 24 points days before real exam. Some distributions that I saw for the first time (Landau distribution and some others I cant even remember) made it much harder because in order to avoid 1h of integrating one would need to know their properties (I didnt). Also some tricky sums that are impossible to calculate if you dont know the tricks.
The exam was like someone picked 30 hardest questions from the sample questions pool in SOA website, make them even harder and put them all in one exam.

I took the exam on Friday and found it pretty trivial. Finished the whole thing in an hour 45 minutes. Finding it hard or easy is a measure of how well you know the material. I went through every single problem from the first 8 chapters in Len Asimow's textbook on Probability and every single of the SOA sample questions. I was fully prepared.

I have taken the exam in July 2019 (failed) and then taken it in the September 2019 sitting (Passed). My questions were pretty different both times. So its best to know the core concepts and be able to apply them to different questions. Topics of mean and variance came up a bunch on both.
