Default Exam P Result

Hi all,

I was a July exam P candidate and received a grade 8, which was a little lower than I hoped for. To my best knowledge, SOA is not releasing the entire distribution. Would someone be able to estimate how I stack up against other passing candidates?

Thank you ....

The only thing the score is useful for is to help you in your preparation for the next exams.

If I were to guess though, I'd say an 8 is the most common score for passing candidates so that would put you at the middle of the passing candidates distribution?... could be totally off though.

6 is probably most common. If I were to guess, I'd say scored were roughly normally distributed with a mean between 5 and 6
