Did you self-grade? How well do you think you did on the MC and the WA. Even if this an abnormally easy sitting, it wouldn't surprise me if the pass mark is only a 61 out of 96. The average pass mark for a pre-2014 exam when it was fully MC was only a 64%...

I was bored and self-graded my Fall 2018 LTAM exam. The absolutely highest I got was a 38/96 (I left a lot blank for that test). With a 38 I scored a 2, which is 60 to 70% of the pass mark. 38/.60 = 63.33 while 38/.70 = 54.285. Pass mark being under 60 is definitely possible for this exam, which is encouraging.

This is helpful. I did self grade, leaving me cautiously optimistic. This isn't my first sitting; one of my fails was a 5 (which I walked out of thinking I probably had a 5, potentially 4 or 6). I left this sitting feeling better than that and self graded 10 - 12 points higher. But is it better enough?

I'll know soon. eek!

Hoping all of us here on the AO pass. I wouldn't wish re-taking LTAM on my worst enemy.

Slightly unrelated. I went to meet my gf's friends in her lab for the first time and they asked me what I do. I talked a little about exams and there were a few "Haha I hated math exams as a kid, trig was so hard." I had to just laugh and be like "Yeah, exams are awful."

BUT ON THE INSIDE I JUST WANTED TO BE LIKE GOD DAMN TAMANTHA YOU DON'T KNOW HALF THE SHIT I BEEN THROUGH! YOU THINK YOU HATE EXAMS?! I LIVE IN THE BUTTHOLE OF EXAM HELL

Hahaha....yeah, they don't get it. They can't. Heck, I didn't REALLY get it either until I started taking them, ya know?

The only thing that sort of gets through to people is when I tell them the pass rates. And then I just start feeling like maybe I'm an idiot for putting up with this..haha
