Don't worry Sparktz, I submitted on 1/13 as well and haven't received my result yet. The most we have to wait now is a week and a day!

(Although, if it takes a whole week it will be a painful week of waiting)

Ah, sorry that you haven't gotten yours yet, but thanks for posting. It does make me feel a little better to have some company.

Now if only you can get the graders on board with that, they'll start cranking out results! I've long been a proponent of drinking while grading...

It seems like during the last few months of the Can-Do assignment, the pass rate for 1st time attempts was down by quite a bit. I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that there would be a higher proportion of the total submissions that were 2nd or 3rd attempts, and therefore more polished (in theory). I think I saw somewhere that graders don't know whether it's a first or second attempt, so that would make 1st attempts look pretty bad in comparison.

This theory would lead me to believe that it is better to submit very early once the assignment has changed. So if you're looking for a reason to be optimistic, I think you've got one!

...and I'm a proponent of studying while drinking. It's been working out pretty well for me.

We're like 2 nerds of a feather. During the IA somebody got pissed at me for stressin about it so much. With me around, you can stress all you want,
31n5et1n. I can appreciate the crap you're having to put up with by waiting. I waited about 7 weeks for the IA.
