I audibly laughed at this one. Good stuff

In all seriousness, you are probably right that this one appears to be heading towards a historically low pass mark. I expect a slightly smaller turnout due to people possibly having skipped this sitting to sit for PA in December.

I'll put my vote in for 2,100 → 35.9%

Tbh i'm not surprised at all that it's this low. I felt quite comfortable going in and found it to be way more challenging than I expected. Overall it was a solid exam, but from what I remember the variability in the question difficulty was all over the place. Time management was definitely tested well.

Failed, already expected it but I can't wait to see my grade I felt I was way too stressed and was a bit underprepared.

Most apples to apples comparison you can have is MFE to IFM

Number of exam takers for last MFE sitting: 2774
Number of exam takers for first IFM sitting: 1572

Pass rates were within .5% of eachother. It's likely there's less of a decrease between sittings because they're six months apart instead of three or whatever but 753 is a little higher than I expected.

Yeah that's fair. STAM is a bit more similar in terms of how much content changed but the gap is even larger (3156 last C sitting and 1356 first STAM sitting). There's other reasons people would want to take C such as it being the last joint offering but imo there's going to be a much larger gap between sittings than whats been estimated
