Anyone else feel like they took this test a lifetime ago? The waiting for results period is always so tough.

Ugh, it's awful. And I'm confident about passing.

On a somewhat related note, anyone have any idea what the pass mark might be?

Between 50 and 55, imo.

Same here. I am at 58 points with the PAK so unless I messed up my scantron I can't see how I won't pass.

Pass mark in Spring was 53 and I thought this one was harder. I am thinking something like 52 if they keep all questions, 50 if they throw out #34 the VIF one.

1 week to go... I really feel confident I passed but I still hate waiting. Is there a solid reason why they don't release the scan-tron tests earlier?

Never served on any exam committee or anything, but I think it's because they only set the pass marks after grading, and they probably set the pass marks for all exams together. So you guys have to wait for all the uppers to get graded.

This is my first CAS exam, if my company handled registration does that mean they made an account on the CAS website on behalf of me? Will I have to make one to see my results? Should I have remembered my candidate number?

Not sure how that works but I would imagine someone in your company would be able to help you out.
