I guess they didn't consider ACAS's who are taking exams to be worthwhile as makeup exam graders.

These are standard requirements for any exam committee member

I know.

My point is if they are desperate for graders they could open it up for the makeup.

I guess they don't want us to see how the sausage is made so to speak.

Yeah that is what it seems like. Lack of transparency as always.

I would compare it to the number of actuaries in a large company such as Travelers. Technically all they would need are a couple of actuaries to handle all the pricing and reserving, but the more actuaries they have, the better the analysis will be. Same goes for grading.

There should probably be some announcement by the AO Mods that any discussion is forbidden until Friday?

This statement is true. Of course, that means the contrapositive is also true.

There will be. But the CAS has asked that no discussion takes place until June 5. More details can be found in the announcement thread.
