Default FA Correlation between Pass/Fail and weeks to results?

It might be interesting to see if there is a correlation between grading time and pass/fail. Theoretically I think there should be. But what is the cutoff point. Of course we know that there are going to be different papers going through different graders at different times, and that would affect results. But I wonder if the length of time to your result can be used to distinguish whether you pass or not.



Therefore I am making a poll that might shed some light on this.

If enough people who got results vote, this may yield some credible results. I would suggest however only people who took the FA this year (2008) vote since a trend factor could be involved (in other words over time different factors other than quality of the paper could effect the length of time to get results)
