What do you mean "general"? So do they give you your actual score for the WA?

This is what it says about the score for each question...see if you can make sense of it lol

"Performance on written-answer questions: Decile scale from 0 to 10. Score of 6 or higher means performance met or exceeded the adjusted standard. (See below for more explanation of adjusted standard.)
The performance measure provided for each written-answer question is a decile score, on a scale from 0 to 10. A decile score of 6 or above indicates that performance met or exceeded the adjusted standard for the question. The ideal standard of performance is the score determined to demonstrate minimum adequate knowledge under ideal conditions; this is what the well-prepared candidate should know and be able to demonstrate. The adjusted standard represents the ideal standard adjusted to reflect that the performance is exhibited under examination conditions.

The decile scores reported provide the candidate with an indication of the relative strength of his/her answers in the context of examination conditions. Please note, however, that a score of 6 or higher does not mean that the candidate met the ideal standard of adequate knowledge; the ideal standard may be considerably higher than the adjusted standard. The averaging of performance decile scores does not produce a meaningful result, because the adjusted standard for passing is determined for the whole examination, not individual question performance."

Fall 2019 exams are out.

Okay, so I just realized that I did some stupid mistakes in the WA. For example, for WA6, out of nowhere, I thought that the maintenance expenses increased by 70 every year, when it should be only increasing by 2% every year lol.

I just said that looking at this exam will cause additional agony. It really does

I have pretty much the same feeling.. when I look at the exam, I realize some MC questions were not hard but I might make mistakes on them. And for WA, I have a better idea of how to solve question 1 now while I did not know how to solve part b and c... sigh...

Could someone show their work for #10 on the MC? I was stumped on that one. I can't figure out the wording, it seems like we also need the probability of going from sick to dead given to us, but maybe I'm missing something.
