i failed this last sitting and I wanted to do C in October so my (probably crazy) plan is to start studying for C now and take 1.5 months off to return to MFE and then go back to C. So probably sometime in May. Don't know if I'm setting myself up to fail both exams this way though.............

Same. I really want to quit my job, but that probably won't happen if I can't pass another exam.

This was the first day my ADAPT subscription went live with the new material. I took a 10 question quiz (admittedly in the 1-5 range) on strictly the new material. If I don't pass this sitting, I think I need to evaluate my career choice.

Is anyone else super annoyed that we have to wait 8 weeks for results after this sitting despite it being CBT?

Very. Might just use my vacation days around then to get away from the waiting.

Would've been nice to not have to worry about this as I intend to jump right into C after. Guess we really have no choice but to wait.
