a trailing 3 exam average is likely skewed high as a ton of people rushed to take the exam in october 2017 prior to the ASA transition

A tone of people could have rushed to take the first sitting of the LTAM hoping that it would be easier!

if anything i think it'd be the opposite, people waiting for the first exam issues to be fleshed out and study materials to fully update.

I do think PA will have had a ton of takers in December for all the people who got screwed by ASA transition and PA being their last requirement.

I see your points and you might be right. Let's wait for SOA to release the numbers.

Idk how, but I managed to pull off a pass ! I guess Sober October was worth it after all (apparently that was my secret weapon). Sayonara life contingencies. You've been a bitch.
