I got a 27/30 on level 3. It boosted me to level 5.5.
Now I'm stuck here getting less than 10 correct in 3 tries.
I'm miserable

Same. I'm at 4.9 and went 15/30 and 18/30 my last two exams. I feel like each time I get an exam that tests one topic I'm not familiar with and it ends up costing me.

Just curious what we think the pass mark will be? MFE was 72% for ~4 years but the last/first sitting of IFM was a 68% pass mark.
