Default Fall 2019 LTAM Progress Thread

I took a exam in asia yesterday. I felt that The fall exam is more difficult than spring. In spring I got a score 59 totally, I got a grade 5.
In this time, I got a 34/40 in MC and 30-35 in WC. I suggest that I got a range of score 64-69.
I heard that The historical passing score was 66(?), but i doubt that this passing score applied for this exam, because this exam was more difficult than previous.

Just I am wating release of my grade with finger cross.... good luck everybody

I know for sure I didn't pass. I would have had to get all of the MC questions I solved right (and I almost always make a few mistakes), and I would have had to get all of the points I tried for in WA correct. That is highly unlikely. I left a lot of points on the table, because I just didn't know how to solve things. But I also ran out of time. I could tell about 2 hours in I was going to run out of time.

In my perspective this was a much harder exam than the first three. I think that if I went into those as prepared as I was going into this I would have passed with a seven.

I solved 18 MC problems (guessed on two) and left about 25 points unattempted for WA.

I agree with what some others have said that the MC section was hard. I only got 12/20 (really hope I got some lucky guesses), but felt I did pretty ok on the WA. I didn't leave anything blank on WA (although I definitely put down some pretty dumb stuff for some of the questions haha).

Definitely harder than spring, but easier than fall 2018 imo

I feel very very borderline.

My earned level ended up at 4.82. Only including that for future reference so that if I did/didn't pass others can see what a 4.82 earned level gets you.

Wow that makes me wonder if my concentration totally failed me. To me I would have needed to be proficient at a level 7 or 8 to pass this exam. I was a 6.2 and felt like a fish out of water.

An EL of 7 or 8 is absolutely unnecessary. An EL of 5 is good enough for the MC. Problem is the EL doesn't evaluate how well you're doing on the WA section.

Does anyone know if I will get partial credit if, for example, in the recursive discrete resrrve formula, I put extra terms that’s not needed and hence gives me an incorrect result but the general idea is right?

From reading the WA answers of the last 2 LTAMs, it seems that you would get most of the points and a small deduction

pretty sure it was. Does anyone remember what #4 and #11 were? Those were the ones I missed. I believe 4 was the lee carter one, but not sure about 11.
