Yes, I agree that it is so hard, at least much harder than May 2001. There are quite some concepts tested that were never tested before, such as IA (the present value of increasing insurance), the conversion between associated decrement rates and multiple decrement rates (the fomulars on Actuarial Mathematics) and many ruin problems. The calculation is cumbersome too. It is an exam calling for really solid skills and understanding.

Do you think the pass mark is still around 24 or it will be lower?

Oscar: at 16:20 EST where would people have not started taking the exam? And if the last ones have already started taking the exam (and it is not a 2 parter) what is the harm in starting the discussions?

i don't think Hawaii could be more than 6 hours away from Eastern
an even if it is 6 they should be done in 10 min
