Do you think the average person fails one exam for every pass they have?

Only done the prelims so far, but haven't failed yet. Hopefully PA won't be the exception.

I have no 'real-life' peer support. I imagine it helps. I know one person in the entire state that's on a similar exam schedule, and they're definitely not nearby.

I failed all the prelims once, with the exception of FM, which I failed twice (I wasn't in an actuarial position and still wasn't sure I was going to be), and MFE, which I passed the first attempt.

On my 3rd attempt for 5. Still not sure how to get through the uppers I guess. Grade report gave me 0-25% for question 2, which seems impossible...

Zero.

Passed every exam on first attempt. Long time ago (FSA 1976).
