Without a clear exam date, I find it hard to convince myself to study, not even 5 minutes a day lol. I hope they announce something soon so I can re-arrange my study plan.

I studied Brehm for about an hour yesterday out of guilt. It feels weird to go from such a strict ramping up study schedule to just nothing.

Did someone say the CAS was possibly going to make an announcement this week? I really wish they'd make a decision on postpone/cancel. I understand that there's uncertainty on the availability of locations but at some point it's better to put a stake in the ground even if that means cancellation for lack of ability to confirm. That's my take.

exam is cancelled and will be administered in October. That's good news for me because I haven't studied at all since their last announcement.

And here I was celebrating the fact that I'll never have to study in the summer again.

Ah well, this is a good decision by the CAS.

If they aren't going to start offering 7,8,9 twice a year going forward this is a really shitty outcome.

No way I'm going to retake 8 in the fall with the best outcome being I have 2 years left of spring exams, so I better hope it isn't too bad jumping in 2 years later on an exam I already took when Fall 2021 rolls around...

yea, although I got a 5 on 8 last sitting I'm still considering just taking 7 and then having one year left assuming I pass
