Oh sorry I missed that! Somehow I've always thought the pilot questions are in 35-question exams only.

Friend got a response today from SOA about the missing greek formulas. They said that those problems were originally made to be pilot questions and will not be scored on the exam. They said that they checked all of the problems that needed the formulas and confirmed that they were all pilot questions.

That sounds like a bunch of bull... These questions have been tested before in prior MFE sittings, have been on the syllabus, and are in the source material. They are just trying to cover their butts.
