Does anyone know where we can find all the answers to the MC section for the fall exam? Official or unofficial. Thanks

The official SOA-provided solution set won't be released until after the scores are released.

Was there a PAK done for your exam? If there was, Abraham Weishaus may confirm the answers on there.

Yufeng Guo was kinda enough to provide free solution keys to previous LTAMs with his analyses of how difficult he felt each problem was. I think he usually does it within a week of exam release. If he does it for this sitting he'll probably create a separate post about it.

This exam is seriously wicked. I had a 4 last sitting and I kind of expected that. I over-studied for this one and don't even expect a 3. FML. Next sitting is my last one, if I fail I'll go start a career as a life coach or something lol

What's going on with number 18? I kept getting 12,663 for the normal contribution on exam day and I'm still getting that now...and that's with the shortcut C_t = (t+1/t*salary increase - 1) * accrued liability

The complicated formula for the benefit probably invalidates that shortcut. Use basic principles.

Hi Dr. Abraham. Your answers are consistent with the PAK except for #19 which has C as its majority answer. Personally, though, I think E is correct.
