I'd recommend moving your thread here:

If you'd like to see targeted responses.

(As it says in the title of this forum, "Before posting a thread, please browse over our other sections to see if there is a better fit, such as Careers - Employment, Actuarial Science Universities Forum or any of our other 100+ forums.")

tim, you should be able to move it yourself, or, if you can't figure it out, you can always "report post" - that icon that's a red triangle with a "!" inside. Where it asks for a message, just type "please move to Exam P forum"...and we'll move it for you.

Since I've seen this, I'm going to move it for you.

For a first pass through the material, 60% is normal. Most of the problems are either old exam problems or exam level problems, and passing on the exam used to be around 65% (lately it has crept slightly higher). It's natural to be somewhat below passing on your first time through the material as you are still learning / practicing. Your second time seeing problems, you would like to be scoring higher as your goal is to learn from your mistakes and try not to repeat them.

Good luck on the exam.
