Does CA have the pass rates published for earned level ranges for this past Nov sitting of MFE? I really find these helpful. I know the goal is to get to an EL of 7, but they often share results of what percent of people passed with EL of 4-6 and so forth. I havenít seen that for this past MFE sitting...

How's everybody doing?!

I finished the manual about a week ago and managed to get my Earned Level to 5.8. Taking the test the 12th so I have 15 full days left to study. Planning on hitting ADAPT until I can get my EL to 7.0 then cranking out EL 5 and 6 exams. I'm going on a road trip next week so I'm planning on printing out the SOA 76 for MFE and doing those on the ride.

I feel like my only week points at the moment are the very obscure options and the market maker profit. I've got all those greeks memorized! (Minus theta :/)

Silly question, but is that the same as taking custom level 5-6 exams? Or are EL exam levels different? I'm trying to gauge what difficulty I should be taking. Thanks!

Do you increase your EL through practice exams or custom quizzes?

Practice exams, I don't think you can get custom quizzes to count towards EL

I've taken only two practice exams so far and noticed that the difficulty of the problems are around 3-4.

Do the difficulty of the practice exams increase automatically as you take more and more of them?

How many practice exams have you taken to get to level 7.1?

The exams increase if you get a passing score.
