The written exams normally come out around two weeks after the sitting. Like my April FSA sitting was 4/27 and exams were released 5/10. I’m guessing it’s probably similar timing for this sitting since all the exams are uploaded at the same time.

I emailed the SOA and they told me that the Fall 2018 exams will be posted within the next two weeks.

Also do they ever announce which questions or parts of questions ended up getting dropped during grading?

The written answer comments they publish include some comments on how test takers performed. If something were to be dropped, probably it would be announced. Why would you expect anything on this exam to be dropped?

Back when the predecessors of LTAM were 100% multiple choice, they occasionally announced a question was defective and what they did about it (such as counting all answers as correct or multiple answers as correct). They never announced that a question was dropped for reasons other than it being defective.

I've heard other MC exams have pilot questions that are dropped. Maybe it's the same case here?

Pilot questions are new questions for the question bank for CBT exams. They are questions expected to be reused on future exams and therefore are not released. With LTAM questions released they cannot be reused, so no reason for pilot questions. Also the SOA announces there are pilot questions on the CBT exams and does not say there are pilot questions on LTAM.

“Dropped” is not really the right verb for pilot questions. (Fairly close though) “Dropped” suggests an “after the exam” decision. The SOA knows in advance which questions are pilot questions that will not affect your score. It does not reveal to candidates which they are, or candidates would not devote full energy to them and statistics would not be valid.
