The exam was fair. I felt very confident my first ten, then skipped around a bit.
I'm almost certain I passed. I'm going to finish up my last VEE and study for exam C. Best of luck to everyone, it's been a fun ride with a lot of ups and downs. cheers, John

I think a reasonable workaround may be to change details/numbers so that it's no longer an "exam question." Someone who knows more about this, correct me if I'm wrong.

There was one involving sharpe ratio that for some reason I didn't get any of the answer choices, but I just chose the closest answer choice which was like 0.07 off.
Also anyone know if the borrowing rate is typically known or not?

I'm not sure what the context is, but if the BlackScholes framework is assumed, then the borrowing rate = riskfree rate, since one of the assumptions under the BlackScholes framework is that investors can borrow or lend at the riskfree rate.

 Expected Stock Price at time T = S(0)*exp[(alpha  delta)T]  Forward Price at time T = S(0)*exp[(r  delta)T] Assuming both alpha and r are greater than the dividend yield, since alpha > r, the expected stock price is greater than an equivalent forward price.
