Their servers appreciate our patience. Their phone lines would appreciate if they were more open about communicating

Maybe they had the exam meeting today and couldn't decide on the pass mark(s)?

Maybe they are running more diagnostics.

But who knows...

Yea, I wouldn't be surprised if both of these exams get extra scrutiny in grading process. After all they put the candidates through they're going to want to make sure everyone who failed really deserved to fail, not the usual BS.

I think at this point the barrier to entry for our profession is no longer the tests but how much trolling you can handle from CAS.
