Default Just passed! Thank you guys for your information and review materials!

The next step I am taking is Exam MFE in Nov. And I am looking for acturial jobs, which I found it's really hard because they all require some years of experience!

Failed twice, ADAPT helped me crush it in October! I would highly suggest ADAPT for getting additional practice exams.

Don't get fooled by the "0-5%" in the syllabus, I got two swap questions on mine. I also found the conceptual questions about derivatives to be the easiest ones.

so technically speaking the usual 70% pass mark is just 70% of 30, which is 21. not 24ish.

No, not technically. You don't know how many pilot questions are on your exam; on average, you need 70% to pass.
