Does anyone feel like they definitely passed this sitting? I feel fairly confident (with an estimated range of 56-70), but I don't want to be devastated if a pass doesn't come in January. However, I haven't really heard anyone say they've definitively passed, which gives me more confidence.

I feel extremely confident that I passed. I got a 5 last time, and definitely over-studied for this one. But I donít see how I scored less than a 67 at the lowest. Iíd put my range at 67-84

Thanks for the response, and good work! How do you think the pass mark will be compared to the last sitting? I've heard some people say they think it could creep into the 50's but I don't have a good read on it.

I feel around 80% sure I have passed just because my extremely conservative score is around 58 (I gave myself 14 MC and only around 50% of WA) when, in fact, I think I did much much better than that. I am sure of 18 of the MC and only skipped around 8 points in the WA

My average estimate is 65 and liberal is at 73, which still has even some conservatism on it as I gave myself only 16 points in the WC and deducted a few points off the items I am sure of just in case I made silly errors.

I would guess that it does creep into the 50ís. The pass rate last time was around 64 last time, and I felt this exam was significantly harder. Also, many people stuck on LTAM passed last time so the candidate field is probably generally weaker

This is what I like to hear

You said you got a 5 last time (I'm assuming you meant spring 2019), do you know what your score was? I thought they give you a breakdown of points if you don't pass?

We are in the same boat. I hope the pass score will be lower.

I got a around 60 and grade5 in spring exam. When I took a spring exam, I had done multiple answer in thirty minute flat with 17/20. But in this time, it took 70-80 minute for multiple exam, It is more harder and complicate than spring exam.
In this time, I got a 32 in multiple exam and 30-35 in written answer in fall. I really hope that the passing score will be lower than previous..

They give you a general score of how you did on each WA problem, but they don't tell you how you did on the MC. I'd guess I got a 55.
