While true, it's not unheard of for candidates to feel the MC on their exam was harder than those in the past/more difficult than they thought. Plenty of people run out of time with a whole WA question blank. My point is, you would much rather that happen than spend too much time on WA and not have enough time to complete MC.

A post has been deleted. Some people have not taken the exam yet. There should be no discussion of exam content before 8PM eastern time this evening.

So I understand there’s no discussion of exam content, but that being said, I feel cautiously optimistic that I passed!

Hoping more share the feeling!

The first two people in my sitting I talked to both thought they failed it. Iím sure a lot who did poorly arenít sharing their feelings.

I also feel like it was easier than the last sitting, but at the same time I wasted so much time re-working problems that i should have used getting partial credit elsewhere. Id give myself ~70% chance i passed.

Ran out of time to re-work certain problems, but jotted down something for everything and hopefully some/most work shown is at least partially correct.

I, too, will cautiously give myself about ~70% chance haha, but won't throw away all study material just yet.

I sat with 7 others who all thought it was really easy. Nervous about how high the pass mark will be.
