Default Which FA Version?

I'm wondering if everyone gets the same FA topic/questions?

Based on what i have read in the threads, it sounds like CDEF is what is currently out there and before that it was "Can-Do".

If it is still CDEF, does anyone think it could change before the transition?

I highly doubt they would change it at this point. Typically a change happens once every couple of years.

it's been CDEF for a long time now and due for a change. i'd imagine since they are restructuring FAP entirely though, they aren't going to change FA until they do that.

to answer your other question, yes everyone gets the same FA. I think they might individualize the numbers though possibly, but that's not really the important part.

The model they give you has different values and that is a means of helping identify plagiarism and cheating. It's one of the reasons you need to submit your model at the end so they can check which version you have to make sure the results you use in your work matches the data you were given. I checked on my 2nd attempt and the results were noticeably different for the same portfolios.
